Next in the series of weekly videos from Divers Ready!

Here’s PART II of How to land your dream Scuba Diving Instructor job. This week we’re focusing on how to narrow down your search for dive operators that you would actually want to work for.

Whether you’re looking to work for cruise ships, liveaboards, expedition teams or a more traditional resort style dive center, we show you how to get your application in the hands of the hiring manager and make a great first impression.

Don’t waste your time carpet-bombing every dive center on the planet with your CV or posting your resume to facebook with the phrase ‘will work anywhere’ because no dive center worth your time will take notice of you. We’re giving you 3 tips to narrow down your search parameters and how to find the best dive operators to work for. PLUS the one biggest secret of getting hired in the Scuba Diving Industry that no one seems to talk about.
