As in IF you got the look, you present yourself well and if you show u really want the job so just tell them that you are doing a degree if they ask or you can say that during self-intro session. They will ask you to state your availability in the application form .
If you get the job eventuall, you might want to put your degree on hold and go for this job first.

My advise is Just go for the Interview Now. I went last Nov cos I was serious about this whole thing. you really have to push yourself and show yourself how much you want it and go for it. I wanted a feel of the experience & I was seriously trying out for the job.. I was too nervous in the end but it was a good experience to have been in the queue... to even be in the room to be interviewed. I am sharing all this because I want to show you my positivity despite getting booted out.. I told myself if I didnt get through its okay because it isnt the end of the world. There is always a 2nd chance. i am sure SIA is very understanding so lets just keep trying and stop being so negative.

So gals LETS GO FOR IT!!



Two thumbs up for corines! Well that's the spirit we need, sure you'll get in on ur next attempt...Go corines!!! That can mean valuable asset to company,ur positivism on top of all bad stories echoed.... :wink:

Remember in the past I failed my IELTS test, was sobbing days and nights...but I gathered my spirit,and gave it another try.Of course,the hardest part is to revive from ur failures and give urself another try.U failed,u learnt ur mistakes,and when u succeed,its the greatest feeling ever!!!!

hi joyce

nope i didnt go for the red dot course, if u wanna build up some self-esteem for yourself then its advisable for you to invest into this.
It is $280 for a 2 days course. It is rather expensive for some but to me its quite alright cos when the interviewers see that you went for it they would believe you have had some prior training from them. and that might just give you some luck.

A friend told me its not really useful but diff ppl got diff opinions you see, So if you feel like going and you are financially capable, GO FOR IT!!
It is good to learn more rather than to meet with surprises later on during training. i would say after these 2 days, you would know what to expect after the 2 day full time course.

For me I reckon I still can go without the course as I have had prior experience with serving people and with the crowd.
I know what to expect cos when it comes to crowds of ppl around you, it might truly intimidate you if you never been in such an environment before, hope you get what I mean. I just wish to grow more in this industry in terms of Image, to be well groomed and to be professionally service oriented and also to be trained under SIAs system is a priviledge altogether.

Hi Joyce,

Heard of the Red Dot Accademy. They held their 2 days workshop on Sat & Sun for the whole day and its at some 'ulu' place in Changi. Think the workshop is good as it will prepare us mentally n physically but 2 full weekend is tough, man! n further more in some 'ulu' place..

Looking for similar classes around town. Will let you guys know if u are interested too.

yeahh, even if you feel that it is not useful in the end, you can`t doubt that it will help you in your preparation. more or less, you`ll definitely learn things from the course. it`s an experience, anyway!

By the way, :wink:
i would like to ask if im able to apply if i have a Diploma in visual arts with LASALLE-SIA college of the Arts??
From what i understand, SIA require Diplomas from local polytechnics, however Lasalle-sia is a private college funded by the government thats all. Moreover its Diploma in the ARTS, so many dont regard well of it. However, i did score well in GCE "O" levels, pretty good enough to get into a JC but i chose the other path, the arts.
so can anyone tell me am i qualified to apply??? urgent! interview's comin soon! :)
:D



i think you should not have a prob. koko77 who is waiting for her training to start now, has a fashion dip from one of the arts schools too. they reviewed her dip and accepted it, i don`t think it matters what you majored, more like your grades and your school and that you got a dip, more like that? i don`t know, i guess so. but i do think you should try it out :)

They r more particular on visible scars n birthmarks plus ur skin texture. The Lancome beautician can be really fussy on acne skin. However, moles is acceptable so long it's not "over-sized". :P


they engage Lancôme beauticians?

Hi Corines,

Found another similar course call FLY HIGH n cost almost half the price at $190 for only 1 day ! U see, I live in Jurong and will burn my pocket hole if were to take cab to & fro for the 2 days. Looking at the map, even if i take train, have to drop at Tanah Merah n take another bus. Will take abt 2 hrs to get there!!

This Fly High workshop is in town(Dhoby Ghaut MRT) n provide lunch too. Going to sign up for next mth course. Check out their website www.ascentcc.com

Requirements: Females who are at least 1.58m


Yux hate that. I am only 1.5m. Will they extend your contract or promote you as senior stewardess or even consultant if you say reach age of 40? No offense but just asking.

1.58m is actually the shortest height requirement i`ve ever heard of, talking in terms of airlines i mean. well promotion depends on your performance, like anywhere else. if you`ve got leadership qualities, they`ll be things you can do. but of course, many will leave when they have kids and all so you can`t say for sure. i`ve heard of people promoting to lead stewardess by the 5th year of their career. :)

Hi,

About the promotion to a leading FA, when i was in poly there is a talk held by SIA (part of recruitment session), there is a leading FA who came along to answer questions that students post. My friend did ask her how long will a FA be promoted to a leading, she said it depends on the performance of the FA, and and for herself, she got promoted within 3 years.
