Just wondering...


Why not? Ever heard of the Open University?

Have a look Queenie it might be useful

Plavt.


Thanks Plavt.

I don't think Open University have the course I want to pursue. I want to do my BA in Dance.

Well everybody, I'll think about it. I will have to choose between studies or emirates.

If you want to join the Arts, why not LaSalle SIA or Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. But LaSalle is very expensive. NAFA is affordable.

Hi,

You mean recently you just got a place in an international airline. How do you get it in one? Where do you have your interview at? Or is it that you ask around?

I still haven't decide yet? If i don't wish to continue my career as a FA then I want to further my studies and go to the field I want to pursue. It all depends after a year.

Now, everyone got it? [he he]

Thats really so sad for you. Really have to let it gone to a waste. Rarely and hardly that now you have been selected but end up cant go for their training. Is this your first time apply for Tigerair?


They want to start traning cuz they need crews so much. Thats why thats the reason. (Think should be like that if im not wrong). But correct me if im wrong. Correct when's their next intake will be coming again? Since they ask you to wait for their next coming intake again. Pls kindly advice. Thank you very much!

I got to know one of my cousin's friend is one of the interviewer for emirates in Singapore, a chinese man. [name shall not be mentioned]. I gave him my resume cause he said even thou I am not 21 yet, he will try to get a place slot for me. Definitely, I have to go thru the same phase as everybody [interview rounds]. He will help me throughout the phase and help to get the position. But of course, if i, myself fail throughout the interview rounds. definitely, i can't blame him for not helping. So, it's all up to me and him and the rest of the interviewers.

hey... yes, they need more crews because two more or one more airplanes are coming up. and more destinations are coming. and as you can see tigerairways are growing. thats why they need crews. i'll try to find out whether there's anymore intake coming in.

Hmm.... like that i see. Is it when you have started flying at TigerAir then you happen to know one of your cousin's friend? By the way, you are holding O level or diploma cert. Wow so good of that interviewer. Somemore you are the youngest one in Emirates. Correct? So have you start your training yet or already been flying? But you just join Tigerair a while only right.

Then you just quite. Need to pay the bond? How long did you join tigerair?
