Royal Caribbean Cruises offers great working opportunity for Filipinos. They own a total of 43 massive ships and they are planning to hire 30,000 workers for the next years.
Royal Caribbean Cruises will uphold a direct hiring center which will be placed in the Philippines. Through this, recruitment process will be much more accessible to Filipino applicants.
The good news is, no middleman or agency is needed to acquire work in their company. They also assured the public that the cruise industry will cope up despite global economic slowdown and will continue to expand and employ more employees, basically Filipinos as they have the most number in their company.
The Royal Carribbean Cruises Ltd. is the owner of Royal Caribbean International, founded in Norway but is based in Miami, Florida. It has a total of 17 percent of shares from the world cruise market.
On the other hand, Philippines is tagged as the “Manning Capital of the World” because it owns 30 percent out of 1.2 million marines across the world. A total of 86,636 Filipino mariners were deployed overseas. Also, a reliable statistics was disclosed last 2011 by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) stating that there are a total of 100 maritime academies situated in the Philippines, producing a total of 40,000 seafarers every year.
So we can expect more job opportunities for qualified mariners for the next 5 years to be given by this internationally-proclaimed cruise company. Filipinos are known as hard-working and persistent in their field of expertise. This is one of the reasons why foreign companies prefer to employ Filipinos compared to other nationalities. The number of unemployed Filipinos is slowly decreasing as more work opportunities are being opened, especially from foreign companies. Filipinos also prefer to work abroad because of a much higher salary offers.
