Viking Cruises screens all our job applicants, reviews each resume personally and will contact you directly if there is an interest in your resume.
We never ask our applicants to pay a fee for any service whatsoever.
However, please be aware that numerous fraudulent companies posing as Viking Cruises are publishing scam job offers on the Web. These scam offers often ask for fees to acquire visas and/or work permits. They establish contact by using false email accounts that create the impression they are valid Viking Cruises email addresses. If you receive an email from one of these companies, please disregard it. Only submit your resume through this page on our official website.
