AIDA Career Days 2013: Dream Jobs with an Ocean View
Anyone interested in a career with Germany's leading cruise line can immediately apply to participate in AIDA Career Days 2013. AIDA Cruises is extending an invitation to meet applicants on board AIDAbella in Rostock-Warnemünde on May 2, June 13, and August 28. Additional events as part of AIDA Career Days 2013 will be held on board AIDAsol in Hamburg on May 29, August 12, and September 11.
Applicants looking for careers in the restaurant, kitchen or bar areas can spend an entire day in Hamburg or Rostock-Warnemünde getting a feel for their potential future workplace as well as for what life is like on an AIDA ship. They can meet crew members from the specific areas by taking extensive tours of the ship, and they will also have the chance to prove their capabilities and skills in practical tests. The program also includes personal interviews and Q&A sessions with colleagues on board as well as with HR decision makers. Applicants who are impressive and make it through the final selection process will be offered a job that very day and thus have the opportunity to join the AIDA team and experience a career that is full of variety.
"We are hosting Career Days to get qualified well-trained professionals and managers excited about a career with AIDA. Interest is tremendous. Just this past year alone, more than 150 applicants accepted our invitation to find out more about AIDA's entry-level and career advancement opportunities. No other company in the cruise industry is offering comparable development opportunities for motivated and qualified employees in the next few years," says Haike Witzke, Vice President of Human Resources Management.
