  • Viking Recruitment for Holland America

    I've been looking for a first job as a third/fourth since qualifying last year... one interview with Viking for HA and apparently I was successful and am on a list waiting for a position to come up. Long wait! Beginning to think the job doesn't exist and Viking are still interviewing for the same positions. Anbody know what's going on?

    Not a scooby, have you tried to call and ask them?
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

    All posts here represent my own opinion and not that of my employer.

      Have you got any cruise experience? If you have you stand a chance of getting shifted sideways to another of their companies if you know who to ask.

        Thanks for commenting. Calling hasn't helped - just told same thing that they'll be in touch when a vacancy comes up.and no, I don't have cruise experience - wish I did! Seems no jobs out there for deck officers with no experience.

          Its a difficult situation... perhaps try volunteering with Sail Training or Mercy ships if the thing with HAL does not come off. I was looking for people for a job a few months ago and its the default setting to ignore people with no experience.
          Cruise ship Captain with experience on-board Passenger Vessels ranging from 5500-150000 GRT.

            Thanks HolyNougat - sound advice, I think. Mind you, HAL looks like a great opportunity that I'd hate to miss!
