1. Summary (Cover Letter) - CV/Resume Part 1 [Mandatory]
I wish to submit my application for a seagoing position as Cook.
When I was 19 years old I applied for and was accepted into the Royal New Zealand Navy as a cook. I enjoyed basic training a lot; the camaraderie, the discipline and the exercise were all highlights as well as the sea time! I left to pursue my career. I do think that I have learned so much and seen so much more than I ever could have in the Navy but I am at a point in my life now that I feel I would love to return to the sea. I see that as my calling and it is what I would love to do for the rest of my working life and beyond.
I have just completed my first voyage on an ocean-going tug for a month and am back and looking to get on to the Australian coast.
I have completed my STCW95 course so I am ready to go ASAP. I believe I can bring invaluable experience, a true passion for the sea and an ability to mingle and get on with all different nationalities, cultures and religions. You will not be disappointed.
