All new candidates with me also should read https://www.yachtchefs.com/candidates
I highly recommend newcomers head to a yacht centre like Antibes or Palma in person and combine meeting agents to register and discuss your options, joining Facebook groups and going to yachts directly (dock walking) for jobs..
Standards and expectations are high from owners, guests and crew alike so please do your ground work before applying to jobs and start getting familiar with provisioners, local suppliers, prepare 7 guest and crew menus ready to show captains, create a portfolio file with your paperwork, certs, menus, food pics etc in it to take with you to show agents, captains etc.
The hardest thing is getting your first job but once you are in doors will open and your next job is easier to find..
Always get a reference from the yacht captain so bear this in mind as its a small industry and we all a short phone call away!
Stick it out for the full duration! Get a full season or better still a year at least on your CV.. be patient..
Be motivated, first appearances count, above all work clean in your galley and keep your stores organised and plan ahead!
Respect your fellow crew members as they are your family from now on!
Here's to a successful season ahead for everyone.. newbies and old timers alike!
If I can help I will!!
