To find out what TUI Musement looks for in its applicants, we asked Joëlle some questions about what makes a good job application. Read on to hear what she had to say.
From an employer’s perspective, what makes a good CV stand out from a bad one?
A good CV is one that is clear, structured, and ideally one page long. It is important that it is up-to-date and written without spelling mistakes. It should also highlight the relevant experience and strengths of the candidate for the position.
What are the most effective ways to make a good impression in a job interview?
The first impression is key. Whether the interview takes place face-to-face or online, it is important to wear appropriate clothing. Punctuality also remains key, as it is a sign of professionalism. Finally, it is essential to be well prepared, read the job description carefully, research the company, its values, its philosophy, its sector of activity, etc. You can also prepare questions in advance to ask the recruiter on the day.
What are your top tips for someone applying for a job in your profession or sector?
We are looking for people who are passionate about travel, who want to work in an international environment, who put the customer first and can put a smile on their face. My best advice would be to be yourself, as we are an inclusive company with colleagues from all over the world.
Do you check a candidate’s social media profile before hiring?
We do not consult the social media networks of our candidates. For our holiday destination jobs, CVs are not compulsory anymore and we screen candidates via pre-selection questions. For our head office positions, we analyse the CVs and cover letters they have provided.
What advice do you have for candidates applying from outside your country?
We recruit candidates to work in our holiday destinations. I’m responsible for Belgium and the Netherlands, but we also recruit candidates from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Poland and many other countries. The advice I would give is to check out our careers web page and our LinkedIn page to find out about our many job opportunities. We are looking for Hotel Reps, Baby Club and Kids Club Hosts, Fitness Instructors, Entertainers, Football and Swimming Instructors, and Contact Centre Agents.
