Reminded me of a few incidents when I worked in HR departments previously. Was asked by my bosses to post advertisements for Administrative/Accounts Assistants. Drafted according to boss's instructions - female, above age XX etc. Both the salespersons from the online job website and newspaper classifieds section called me to say that I'm not allowed to indicate such preferences; it is against Ministry of Manpower's regulations. To state gender/age preferences are considered discrimination, quoting them.

Some airlines like Qatar need to indicate "above 21 years old" because it is a legal requirement that only foreigners above 21 can be employed.

If you've noticed the SIA cadet pilot advertisements, gender is also not indicated. Just the usual 1.65m min. height, etc. But SIA indeed does not provide training for female commercial pilots.

Pls correct me if I'd made any wrong assumptions above.

if males are allowed today, i missed it. :???:


Currently, I just hope they state CLEARLY in newspaper advertisements that they are looking for female cabin crew. so not to waste aspiring male crew to go down to the venue and be disappointed. This has been an on-going error on the part of Sass Atlantic. Even when they are doing recruitment for Jetstar Asia, those 'Study while u fly' thingy, they never state the age requirements on newspapers. Imagine those people who came all the way to their briefing and only to find out that there is an age requirement, all their dreams shattered. Why cant they be out-right clear.

if tats the case, maybe the airline should really indicate they are hiring stewardess or stewards. And not just put cabin crews.

becos, i just found out that there are guys whom went for the interview too... dunno if they are selected though..

Do you have any evidence of this? Although it would seem they don't want female pilots, perhaps evident by the fact that they have never had any. Anybody know different?

Education Criteria

Any kind souls out there, who can share for Emirates, if I am holding to a private degree is that considered recognized for them. As it stated high school qualifications. As I understand SIA recognized only A level candidates. Do advise.

Cheers

No female pilots in SIA. Silkair takes in female pilots though, and I believe even trains ab-initios. So they'll go through everything the boys go through in SIA except the learjet in maroochydore.

I don't have any website or printed sources for this piece of information, I've to say. It was told to me by a female friend who is keen to be a commercial pilot and had went for aptitude tests for the non-commercial side. Maybe I'd get her to come onto this forum to explain things better.

hi,

i am new here. i went to the interview on 6th jan but i was not shortlisted.

they will take your arm reach without shoes (212cm) once you submited your resume, full length & passport photographs. you will assign to a seat, and wait for the interview. ten ladies are asked to the interview room. the group will given a topic, and each of them has to come out a reason. the best five reasons are selected by the ladies and rearrange it (from first to fifth). once is done, the interview is over.
wait outside for result.

hi.. sorry but its not based on the best reasons u have given on group discussion. they dont really care about it really, they just want to see if u can interact with others, whether u listen to other people and how u listen, ur body language, do u cut other people while talking, are u dominating, do u have a blabber mouth.. its not the best reason.

I saw some male applicants. They were asked to submit their resume but there was no interview. That open day was merely for female.

Hi niennaanarion,

I fully agreed with you. The interviewer observed us while we were talking. I merely stated what the interviewer told us to do.

I feel that this interview (my group) is not fair. Two ladies was selected for next round. One of them did not speak throughout the interview, she was quiet (I guess talk less is better).
