AIDA targets graduates with gap-year posts


AIDA cruise line is offering bachelor’s graduates an opportunity to gather practical work experience during their gap year with various positions available on shore and on board the AIDA fleet.

The company is accepting applications for graduates in the following related subjects: onboard media, guest relations, human resources fleet management, operational controlling, and shore excursions.

“Young people who have earned their bachelor’s degree can gain professional experience with us before pursuing their master’s and travel the world on our ships,” said Romy Schwittay, manager of junior programmes at AIDA Cruises.

Participants will first work at the company headquarters in Rostock, Germany, to familiarise themselves with their respective departments – based on their study subjects. On board, they will live and work as crew members.

The cruise line posts reality series The Crew and The Crew Journey on its Instagram and YouTube channels, sharing details on entry-level and career opportunities on shore and on board. AIDA has also created a career podcast, Crew Stories, for Spotify, where crew members share their experiences working on board.
