Talking Yachting Exit Plans with Jamila aka @Super_Yacht_Chief_Stew
In this yachting podcast we explore the world on water with Superyacht Chief Stew Jamila. She is also the owner of Starfish Crew, a Yacht Crew consultancy agency geared towards helping Spanish speaking people join the yachting industry. Her bespoke step-by-step guidance covers everything from Resume services, to agency pitches, and inside information into the yachting world. With over 8 years of yachting under her belt, and much experience hiring as a Chief Stew, Jamila knows exactly what recruiters are searching for. As part of her Yachting Exit Plan, Jamila planned her next step for years. Between her consultancy business and real estate decisions, she is a great example of someone who is transitioning to land seamlessly and in style.
On Joining the Yachting Industry from Spain
Jamila’s foray into yachting was quite unique, as she explains. Her feeling about learning of this industry is something she can only describe as ‘winning the lottery’. While in University in Madrid, Jamila used to do dining service at events. One day, after serving at a meeting at Hotel Palace in Madrid, she got an interview with the PA of a yacht who wanted to hire her straight out of University. Once Jamila finished her Masters, she flew on their private jet the next day to join the yacht in June 2010.
