The maritime sector is staffed by a wide range and variety of workers and professionals in many different positions and areas, working sometimes for months in a competitive environment that does, however, offers, not only payment scales and incentives above the average for similar or the same positions on land, but also real opportunities for advancement and personal development.

Nevertheless, a first approach to the sector shows a clear difference among the cruise industry, the merchant marine and the offshore oil/gas industry in terms of personal profile and qualifications to be considered for a seagoing position.

Even in the case of specific positions, the required qualifications and skills can be very different in each case, and also the way to apply for them.

Obviously, a correct approach to the human resources representatives of these companies is decisive to maximize the chances as a suitable candidate to fill a vacancy on board.

Leaving aside the many concerns, issues and queries that may arise along the recruitment process and the contract period.
