Dear Ms. Anne Ware,

I am applying for a position of Deck Cadet for your cruise line Oceania Cruises and have attached my resume for you.

I have a high school diploma and want to start my career with a cruise line and understand to do this I must start at the bottom and work my way up. I am strong and can handle storing cargo, handling gear, working with the rigging and running any other errands that are required of me. I understand that I will be required to preserve the paint on the ship along with any maintenance. I do not have a problem being away from home for extended periods of time as I know this is also a part of the job.

I am a quick learner and can pick up new concepts and tasks very quickly and would like to begin my training as an entry level seaman as soon as possible. I do know that this takes passing all the classes and putting in at least three years on a ship in order to make this career move. I am ready for the challenge and am prepared to work as many hours as necessary to make my dream come true.

I am physically able to handle the challenges of life on a ship and have spend many years on private fishing vessels so I know that being on water is not a problem for me. I am currently studying all I can about navigation, both traditional and the more technical types of navigating.

Please feel free to contact me any time at (123)-893-1749.


Your Signature

Tom Johnson
