The Lowdown on Applying for Ski Jobs


 
Travel & Tourism
Applying for a ski job is much the same as applying for any other job but, as every industry is different, I thought it important to relay some tips on how to impress potential employers on your application form and at your interview.

Application Forms

This is the bit that you have control over, so get it right and you are off to a good start. Tailor your CV to the ski job you are applying for and attach a cover letter that will raise the employer’s interest.

Punctuation and Spelling

Make sure you double-check everything you have written. I always advise asking someone else to read over your work and do a spell check on your computer too.

Your Email Address and Social Media

Many of us got our email addresses many of years ago and have not changed them since. Perhaps you used a nickname or something you thought would be humorous to all of your friends. Now is the time to change that. Just open a new email account for job applications as it is going to look a lot more professional.

Remember to set your privacy settings on social media sites too, so that pictures and messages can only be seen by those you want them to be seen by. You don’t need a potential employer to get the wrong idea!

Be professional and succinct. No smiley faces and relaxed greetings. This is an application after all.

The Interview

Make a Copy of Your Application Form

This is important, as you really need to read through it before your interview so that you can remember what you have said. At this stage the application is the only information the company have on you and therefore they will base the interview for the ski job on it. Be honest or you will get caught out.

Get Informed

Informing yourself is key when in any interview, so make sure you study the company’s website and brochure and are familiar with what they require of you.

Most interviewers will ask you why you have applied for a ski job, so have an answer ready to go. Try to tie your answer in with the company ethos. The interview will also cover customer service and your relevant experience. Think of some good examples of when you have given good customer service.

Preparation

It is a good idea to prepare some examples of how you would deal with difficult situations. Interviewers often ask about how you would cope with tough customers.

You also need to demonstrate that you are happy to work as a team. Group interviews will involve role playing to assess your teamwork capabilities. Otherwise, take along some examples of when you worked in a team, even if it is not in an employment capacity. It could be that you were a member of a sports team for example.

Be Professional

Try to keep the nerves at bay, and remember that the interviewer will also be trying to impress you. They have lots of competition out there also looking for good staff to fill their ski jobs.

Make sure that you are on time and look the part, as first impressions count. Make an effort and it will be noted. Shake hands with all members of the panel and smile.

Have a few questions up your sleeve, as you will no doubt be asked if you have any at the end of the interview. Asking about future job prospects, training, and anything you think is relevant is always an impressive strategy.
