Can you offer any suggestions for preparing a resume suitable for applying for a position in the dive industry?
Preparing a good resume for applying for a job in the dive industry is essentially no different to preparing one for any other industry. However, because today’s employers are looking for people who are multi-skilled, it is important to emphasize any relevant training and experience you have had outside the dive industry. It is particularly important to mention experience you have had in retail sales, marketing, computers, or management. Resort and live-aboard operators are always looking for people with mechanical skills. In other words, sell yourself, not only on the basis or your dive training and experience, but also through highlighting previous experience you have had in other fields.
