VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see a day in the life of a Yacht Broker.
Skip ahead to the 2 minute mark (or watch the entire thing if you have time!)
As a yacht broker, it is your job to know everything there is to know about yachts: model, speed, maintenance requirements, etc. The more you know about the yacht, the better you will be able to sell it!
STEP 1: Check out all of these yachts for sale.
STEP 2: Decide which yacht is the best match for your client, Juan Hawthorne:
- has a budget of $500,000 to $2,500,000
- is looking for a yacht to enjoy with his family
- nothing too sporty
- usually spends his summers in the Caribbean
- enjoys cool features
STEP 3: Which yacht do you recommend for Mr. Hawthorne? Draft a professional email to explain your #1 yacht broker pick. Be sure to specifically describe why this is the best yacht for Mr. Hawthorne according to his needs and preferences.
STEP 4: Share your yacht broker email recommendation in the Student Showcase to build your resume!
