    Hello All!

    I am a private chef looking to change directions in personal cheffing to working on a yacht.  Do you have any pointers, good agencies, or educational information that would help steer me in the right direction?  I have been on crew4crew.  Reluctant to pay the 195.00 processing fee that others in the yacht business request just to review your resume.  I work too hard for the money I make now just to give it to someone else without a guarantee for a job.  Thank you in advance for your advice.

    You may also want to look into Chief Steward or Steward positions.. depending on the tasks, it usually includes the galley, purchasing, etc., but individual vessels vary. Sub category: chefs
