Yes, it’s true. Psychics are alive and well and working on cruise ships. Part of the activity and entertainment department on cruise ships, psychics on cruise ships are in an excellent position for several reasons. Because the cruise experience onboard revolves around all different types of entertainment, there is always a need for entertainers such as psychics. Not only this, but jobs on cruise ships in the activity and entertainment department are considered some of the most glamorous jobs aboard the ship. Those best suited for jobs in this department are typically enthusiastic and extroverted.
Psychics on cruise ships share duties of the cruise staff and they work among comedians, dancers, soloists, magicians, jugglers, vocalists, and musicians. They also work among DJs, production managers, photographers, casino staff, hosts and hostesses, and more. Psychics typically perform services daily and they must participate in a number of passenger activities such as contests, parties, embarkation, and deck games.
So, what does it take to become a psychic on cruise ships? First, you have to be an amazing psychic, meaning, you should have an extraordinary sense of perception. You should also have a proven record of accomplishment, meaning, you must have a verifiable client list (if you worked solo) or excellent references from all establishments that you have worked for. In most cases, cruise lines will require an “audition.” You may be asked to “read” several staff members and/or management personnel. In addition to an extraordinary sense of perception, you should be friendly, compassionate, and a bit of a performer. Remember, cruise ship passengers also like the “show” that comes with participating in a reading.
If you have the qualifications listed above and you are ready to look for a psychic position on cruise ships, you may begin by locating several cruise lines. If you have a specific cruise line in mind, locate the cruise lines’ OFFICIAL website first. Visit the Ships and Cruises Directory for official listings. Once you have located the site, visit the website and search around for job postings. Most cruise line websites have a career center or job postings page. If the cruise line lists job openings for psychics, be sure to follow the application procedure to the letter. Applicants that do not follow directions are typically passed over in favor of those that do. If the cruise line does not list job openings on its site, send a polished cover letter and resume to the cruise lines Human Resources Department. The Human Resources Department is typically located at the cruise lines headquarters. This information is usually listed on the cruise line website. It is important to include the position you are interested in so that it can be directed to the appropriate department manager.
