Singaporegrrl,
I think you must concentrate more on human communication/ interaction; why people misunderstand each other, why people do the things they, why they behave how they do. Some interesting reading; 'How to read a person like Book', 'Manwatching' (Desmond Morris) are some titles you may find useful. There is nothing wrong with the research you do but you need to focus more on those vital components which flight attendants need. Just treat your interview as an experience and note down where you went wrong

Best Wishes,

Plavt.

Being sarcastic is definitely what airlines doesnt want and you have proved everyone that you have that minus quality. It is no surprise that you didnt make it to the next round.
You seem to be unsuitable for this job.

Goodbye!


That was rather uncharitable, singaporegrrl has been on this forum for some considerable time and who are you to say she has minus quality whatever that is supposed to mean? I would say you are somewhat judgmental. Sinaporegrrl is only 19 years old and as she will likely tell you herself is still going through a learning process (i.e. attending an educational course). Since you seem to find her reply sarcastic then I have to say you got what you asked for.

Plavt.


Yep like I've said, I'm only 19 and I admit that I still have much to learn. Being a flight attendant may or may not be part of my life but the main thing is I have done what I can, and I'm proud of that. This part of my life will be quite a learning experience for me and I've met a lot of encouraging and respectable people here. All their advices are appreciated.

Matt10, you told me that I was being sarcastic. Your comments were insulting. In fact, you've been insulting quite a number of times. I'm sorry to say but in a way, you're talking about yourself coz there's no difference. Like what Plavt mentioned, you've got what you asked for. You don't hug a person for giving you an insult, do you? I doubt so.

Hope we don't find another donno here, or worse.

She asked alot of questions and at the end of it she told me that I wasn't smiling throughout the interview although I believe I did and said that I didn't show much enthusiasm. Even though I was rather nervous, I showed alot of interest during the interview. Probably she saw it in a different way. I don't think I'll be called up for an interview with Jetstar Asia as today is the 2nd day of interviews after yesterday and Monday will be the last day. She made me and my friend rather demoralised but I guess there's much to learnt from that interview. Ouh well, better luck next time.


You can always look for more opportunities in the future.
In fact, there's alot more opportunities to be a Flight Attendant.
If you want to further your studies, might as well do so...
But if you have the opportunity to be a Flight Attendant, I would rather suggest that you quickly grab that opportunity before it's too late. This opportunities come once in a while. Don't miss any chances.


Yeah.. I've started already. It's fun and tiring..
Matt10: Alright, you got your point! ;)

I do not understand why those people who kept on wanting to put down on others' ambitions! If Singaporegrrr does not have the qualities to become a FA, I personally do not feel that there is any other better candidate around here who fits in the bill! She's done enough research & information, although there are some misunderstandings in some of the posts! If she is not serious about her ambition, then in the 1st place, she would not spend so much time to give advice or share tips on the different airlines & what are their criterion & rounds of interviews. She could have spent the time to do other things or out for fun!

** Re: her picture she used here, do you think it is the REAL PERSON? PLEASE USE YOUR BRAINS!

We should be giving one another encouragement & advice to improve here, instead of shooting nasty remarks...

Singaporegrrr, both of us know why we did not get selected for the next round! But I know, given your intellectual & belief, you will continue to persevere till you achieve your goal!

Anyway, there will be interview with Jetstar Asia for during these couple of days & those who make it will have their final manageent interview. Training will start on 24th April & by end of May, you should be able to finish the 6weeks training & start flying. Not to mention the 2days which you will be attending the tutorials & lecture for the diploma programme!

Hello,

The display picture is not totally her. The body is not a human being except for the head which is hers. I'm sure she had pasted her photo over the statue's head.

Correct me if i'm not right Singapore Girl.

Goodbye!

Hi Matt10,

I am really embarrassed by your sentence that "I'm SURE she had pasted her photo over the statue's head." How can you be positively sure that the face of the picture is Singaporegrrr? She might have really cut & paste the picture over a FA's uniform but that does not mean that she looks like that? All can be forged & disguised! You are using a cartoon picture & does that mean that you look exactly the same in real person? If you do not know her personally, do not make silly remarks! What is the point of slapping a person on the face & apologised for it next?

Enough said for this, back to the main topic on the programme for the aspiring FA, PLEASE!

I have posted some time ago, somewhere that only the head is me, the body's not. Why I had that edited? And why I had it as my avatar. This forum is where I spend most of my days improving myself in hopes of becoming a flight attendant. Without fail, I'll definitely see that avatar. It will not change unless I do so. It may not look real at all but the purpose is to encourage myself. I personally believe that not only people but visual images can play a part as well in motivating a person. You can't expect others to constantly motivate you right? If you don't bother to motivate yourself, then even a million cheers won't be of much use. To be frank I have my own scrap book where I paste pictures of the different things I'd like to achieve in the future. I call it my "Dream Book". You may say, "DREAM ON!". I know some of them will come true and some won't, but I know I have tried my very best to achieve them. Different people have their own unique way of motivating themselves if they want to. This is my own way. I'm sure that all of us had, in some way, motivated ourselves in school. It's not the end when we fail. Of course there are so much to learn when we fail. The thing is, do we want to learn or continue to fail?

Nothing wrong with this way of looking at things at all and no harm in 'dreaming' we all do to some extent. Who doesn't in some way fantasize something in their life or if not fantasize or dream simply want something. I know some of my colleagues here in the UK dream of owning a house in another country when they retire is one example.

Thats great. Im so happy for you. How long have you started flying already? Did you make and quite a lot of friends? So far which country have you flown to? Being a FA is quite tiring. Thats what being a FA is. But since you have enjoy it yourself, that is worth it.

Matt10,

I think you still do not get my point! The bottomline is I do not wish any one of us here in this forum criticising one another's looks or avatar here! Unless you think you look damn great or your eyes are on top of your head, that you like to be sarcastic about what others use as their avatar... What I quoted you the previous time was just telling you that not everyone uses their own real face or body here as the avatar. In this case. Singaporegrrl clarified that she is indeed using her own face but over another's body! She's honest about it!

There is nothing wrong if you really want to get it off your chest but what is the point of doing it when you know it hurts? I believe most of us who are in this forum just would like to exchange pointers, enlighten those who are keen to fly but not much of idea about FA!


Queenie-me,

Congrats on achieving your dream! I am really happy & keep up the good work........

Anyway, hope to hear from those who have make it to the next level of this 2yr programme!

QM,

You said that you been to Vietnam and Thailand. Is that true?

Because according to Singapore Girl, she says that budget airlines like yours only do turnaround flights.

Or is it that Singapore Girl is giving wrong info again?

Thanks. :D
