u can always submit your application before hand provided you have all the materials needed. But as you're new and SIA is recruiting international crews, you got to wait until they put out an appointment for SIngaporeans then download the materials, send it in.

Due to the mass recruitment and higher demand of FAs, it seems like they are conducting interviews for locals every 2-3 mths..
there were once in Apr, July, now Aug....so next might be oct or Nov??

hmm....erm..anyway i dono if SIA will wait for u till May..
but if u have a O lvl cert...and u manage to get thru the whole process...
i think they shld be willing to wait for u till u get ur cert in may?
jus give it a shot..=)

...as for this coming WALK IN...basically every eager flyers will be flooding at the ballroom...there wont be any Shortlisting...
its not called a WALK-IN for nothing my dear... :)
u jus got to walk in with the required documents, proper attire and attitude......no need resume ... gd luck!

yeap thx for the reply:) But i have alot of considerations rite now cos wat am i going to answer them if they asked why i'm here since i've still a year to go.So if my answer came as "i wanna come and try out" does it show that i'm lacking of confidence in just trying out?

Anyway is the interview always on a walk in basis?Or it really depends?How many do they recruit usually in a batch.Any idea?

Are you a cabin crew at SIA now?

oh yah! forget to tell u...honesty plays a part.........of cos not so honest like "ooh..i like SIA pay" that kinda... but if they were to ask u why u join so early....just say something..."I wouls love to be a cabin crew when i graduate"...or "I would like to know how far my abiility will bring me for such difficult interviews?"

humble, confident and honest and sincere!!!! remember k.. =)

its often on walk in basis during mass recruitment i think?
about one thousands over applicants...to maybe 100-300? or lesser? this is jus my guess...
cos every rd they eliminate ard 50%...

Now I know how you managed to get through the stringent selections, ntyj! If every other applicant can project themselves like this, the interviewers would really have a hard time.

1)"Flying is my childhood dream, i have always wanted to be an air stewardess?" cos out of 10 girls..2 girls said that..and i never see them already...
next...
2)"I really hope all of you will give me a chance to show you that I have wad it takes to be in SIA"..

in a way.....erm..answer in a more humble and less desperate ways bah...

like maybe ending ur intro with...
"Should I be really lucky to be chosen by you, i would sincerely love to provide SIA with the assistance at the best of my ability"...den end with a sincere smile looking at the interviewers!

but don quote wad i say k! lol.

Etiquettes of attending interviews are:
1) Dress smart, meaning office wear if its a corporate company. Wears jeans unless u're intending to apply for a sales assistants in Girodano.

2) Don't make up overly too much. Just light will do. You ain't applying for 7th month Getai. Anyway its over soon. So u're late.

3) Bring all your necesarry supporting documents in order. Such as your NRIC, birth certs, edu certs etc.

Oh no, did I sound like I was mocking? I wasn't! What I meant was that if applicants are able to speak like matured ladies, which is how you phrased your answers above, wouldn't the interviewers have a hard time deciding who to boot out? And you're in! It's not going to be easy to speak with such composure in a competitive interview round... But I guess it's got to be done somehow. Thanks for your helpful replies!

Why bother about what people say? Most impt is to say what you think is right. Be earnest and not copy whatever pple said before. It seems so superficial. Interviewers are not called interviews for nothing. They will access your ability throughly. Some may speak colorful and full of vigour, but they still fail eventually. Some thoughts for you to think over. What the forum here can do is only to give you a rough picture of what is going on in the interview process. The rest is up to you to show yourself.
