If your CV doesn’t make the interview cut, you’re out of the running. End of story.

These days CVs go through so many more hands than just the crew agents’.

For any open position, your CV may also be screened by a management company, owner’s representative or Personal Assistant. Not all of those gatekeepers are as familiar with yachting as you are, which means that now, more than ever, you cannot assume your experience will speak for itself.

As experienced crew, you already know that if your CV doesn’t make the interview shortlist, you won’t get the job. When screening other people’s CVs, you see the mistakes that land people in the rejection pile. Maybe they leave out the most important information, failing to give a sense of their true abilities. Maybe the layout is confusing or messy. Maybe their photo is lackluster, or even laughable. Maybe even just the language is off putting. It’s easy to spot these problems on other people’s CVs but when it comes to your own, it can be harder to judge. What you need is a professional, honest and unbiased opinion to be 100% confident that you are presenting and ‘selling’ yourself in the best possible way.

Bottom line, your yachting CV is a sales tool that should be prepared by a yachting insider with marketing and writing expertise.

“I got my dream captain’s job, thanks to my new CV”

I was job-hunting for a long time, in heavy competition with equal candidates, and thanks to Alison’s coaching and changes to my CV I got an interview for, and then secured a super yacht Captain’s job I have always dreamed of. She is a really lovely person and I can highly recommend her for your future career development.

“My CV is now light years ahead of where it was before”

While I’m well versed in the various technical aspects of a yacht, I didn’t have a clue how to properly present myself as a newcomer to the field. Your unique perspective of the industry has placed my CV light years ahead of where it was before. I would encourage anybody entering the industry to seek your help.

“I got an amazing position… this works!”

Alison is great! She really helped me out adapting my CV to the industry standards. And it works! After investing in my CV I got an amazing position as lead steward on a very big MY. Thanks for the support and the great job you do every day to help us Alison!

Sebastien Monnier, Steward
“The key to a dream position!”

A special thanks to both you and Justine for the fantastic work done on the CV I now have. I am sure it will be the key to a dream position in the future.

“One day after I received my CV I already found daywork!”

A few months ago I jumped into the unknown and came to Antibes to search for work in the yachting industry. As I was completely new to the industry and had zero experience it was really difficult to find work! Thanks to Alison and the Crew Coach who optimized my CV, I was able to find daywork just one day after that Alison had sent me my new CV. Not much longer I found my first seasonal position as a stewardess onboard a busy 45m charter M/Y! Alison is a really carrying person that wants to help young people coming into the yachting industry! I highly recommend her as she is one of the best out there to coach and support you!

Lynn Willemyns, Stewardess
“The result is amazing!”

What is the point in being proud of your career and confident in the future if your CV doesn’t express that to potential employers? Alison has transformed mine entirely, the result is amazing!

Yannick Lowe, Captain
“My CV looked so good, I couldn’t believe it was all about me!”

Your CV is your sypnosis of your work experience, history. It is a tool that differentiates you from other candidates, it promotes your skills, strengths, in general we are not very good at bigging ourselves up but The Crew Coach is. Her team picks up the qualities that make you shine out. Her service is thorough and quick, and when I received my CV back it read so well and looked so good, I couldn’t believe it was all about me. I used The Crew Coach CV service to attain a stage at a well known London restaurant and a favourite of the owner. She tailored it to my needs and I was immediately successful when my previous CV did not have the same impact. I thoroughly recommend The Crew Coach if you want to maximise your potential with your CV.

“I got a job!”

I have the most exciting news for you!!! I got a job!!! I’m so so so happy! I just want to say a massive ‘thank you’ to you!! You helped me so much and I will be absolutely recommending your services to others! Your CV 100% success rate lives on!!

Stephanie Nathan, Stewardess, Antibes
“Your work paid off!”

I wanted to let you know that I accepted a Captains position yesterday. I like to think that your work on my cv paid off… Thank you

BC, Captain
