Question about main Crewlinker features

How do I use the additional project tags?

Use (a combination of) keywords or abbreviations (tags) that tell a little more about your position and the sea project that you have finished. For example 'dpo', 'North Sea', 'ship delivery' or 'dredging'.

! Don’t use native words, but write them in English. Operators and crewing agencies understand English and will use English keywords to search for you via Crewlinker. Otherwise, you don't appear in their search results due to the wrong use of your tags.

The additional project tags are a way to add some relevant information about your career. We offer tags instead of a free form description, as operators and crewing agencies don’t read large text. The tags make your profile complete and compact at once.

→ Read here more about how the additional project tags show your value at a glance and contribute to our uniformity.

Why should I add my appraisals?

Appraisals legitimize your qualities. An appraisal is the proof that you're an excellent seafarer - hence increases in itself the chance of getting a suitable seajob:

  • You stand out in the search results of seafaring compagnies
  • Your appraisal can be the deciding factor in the choice for you over a seafarer that appears to have similar qualities but without or not having an outstanding recommandation like yours (show what sets you apart!)
  • Appraisals make you reliable and credible, and therefore a desirable seafarer!

Can I add an appraisal while still on board?

Yes, you can add an appraisal to a sea service if you are still working on the ship:

  1. Check the box "At the moment I am working in this position" when filling in your sea service.
  2. Once you've done that, you can add the associated appraisal.

Should I share my profile link or my pdf?

  1. If it concerns an operator or crewing agency that isn’t part of the Crewlinker network yet and asks for your resume or that posted a vacancy that you want to sign up for, it’s best to share the downloadable version as well as the link to your profile.
    As the concerned employer isn’t registered yet, it will not be able to access your Crewlinker profile via the link.

    ! However, the link makes employers visit the website and can trigger them to join Crewlinker. The more operators and crewing agencies join, the greater your chance will be to find a (suitable) sea job.
  2. If you don’t feel the need to share your resume with others, you can always share your profile link with colleagues or potential employers as an invitation to join the Crewlinker network.

    ! In the future, your profile link and the downloadable version of your profile will be less necessary. When operators and crewing agencies join the Crewlinker network, you can connect with them on our platform. Shipping companies will search and find your profile and we will directly match you via the platform.

Where can I find sea job offers?

When you log in to your account, you will see a button in the top right corner labeled 'Job Openings.' Click on that button to find all available sea jobs.

How can I be notified of new job openings on crewlinker.com?

As a seafarer on Crewlinker, you'll receive email notifications whenever there is a new job opening that matches the duty that you have put on your profile. This is a great way to stay up-to-date on new job opportunities and ensure that you don't miss out on any potential positions.
