  • Step by step guide in how to land that first job

  • Preparations for the job search, how to prepare for a first interview and your first week onboard
  • Variations of contracts, salary expectations, taxes, visas, insurances
  • Your rights onboard
  • CV-guidance and CV-workshop
  • The recruitment process and registration
    with agencies
  • Life onboard- what can you expect?

These two girls are absolutely amazing and their course was extremely informative. Without them, I would never have been part of this adventure that has been one of the best experiences of my life. After the course, they are by your side all the time to answer questions and they are genuinely interested in how you are doing. Highly recommend that you take their course if you want to try something that will give you memories for life!

A few years ago I became very interested in getting started in yachting. I did a bit of research, without success, it was very hard to get any information, so I gave up. In 2018 Lisa & Helena showed up on my Instagram and quickly caught my attention. I took the course with them on the 15th of March 2020 and it was a very rewarding course filled with ALL the information you need to take the step into the industry. The girls do not leave you at the end of the course, but follow up on your development and your journey. I am super happy that I took the course with them as I would otherwise have sat still today unaware how to get started in yachting. Thank you Lisa & Helena for your genuine commitment to all of us who are interested in the yachting industry. Without you we would be nothing!

For several years I have dreamed of entering the yachting industry, something that unfortunately felt very difficult. After the course with Yachting Sweden, it felt much more accasable and within reach. Helena and Lisa go through all the information you may need and tell about their own experience from the industry, but it does not end after the course. They follow up and help with everything from CVs to interviews and are really a good support throughout the process. Without the girls, I would not have known how to start the journey I had dreamed of for so long. Their experience, commitment and advice are worth their weight in gold!
