yeah lo... mi oso ...no sporean but PR can try la.... more over my mandarin sucks big time!!! so i can forget bout it..hehehe... but its a good opportunity for those who has the criteria...no harm trying for those who are keen...

yes... usually any airline would require a full length photo with formal attire... reason being interviewer cant remember all the interviewees after the whole process & more over, after the interview, they need to discuss with other management staff b4 they can proceed to whether which interviewees are successful for the next interview.... & also of cos, for recording purposes...(for those airline that requires the full length pic even b4 any interview, it save their time to see who & what they need b4 deciding)

just give them wat they wan & wait for their reply yeah...

They hire rarely and in very limited numbers as turnover is low. The contract is on a 1 year basis in the first instance.

There's only 3 rounds for BA - Intro/translation in Chinese, 2nd rounds - a more complex intro/translation in Chinese and a 3rd one is group interview/1-1 - If I can remember correctly. As guessed, the emphasis is on your Chinese language skills.



hi there,

Normally the self-intro is conducted in English or Mandarin? Will they give u a script or an announcement to be see whether your pronounication is accurate or not?

For a newbie in the UK around a miserly £8000.
