In my previous work experience as a Steward onboard a large passenger vessel, I provided service to cabins, public rooms, and common areas, and efficiently organized and supervised a housekeeping staff of 100 plus. My practical experience is bolstered by my bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Services.
Some of my skills and career highlights include:
- Oversaw and provided service for a passenger vessel of 1000 to 2600 guests
- Responsible for scheduling and managing a staff of over 100 while maintaining productivity levels according to budget and forecast
- Won “Rising Star of the Month” for October 2016
- Maintained the rooms and bathrooms in the accommodations up to health standards and clean on a daily basis.
- Provided training for new hires and current employees of policies and procedures of the vessel.
Having spent seven years as a steward on a large passenger vessel, I know I can meet up the requirements and responsibilities of a Steward aboard a Lark Voyages ship. I offer highly attentive service, keen management style and an eye for detail. I am available for a personal interview to discuss my experience and future goals and also learn more about the position. Thank you for considering me.
