haha ya, generally!

although i'm clinically certified to be 1.6m, they measured me at the door too! lol i appear short too, i bet!

we can all just hope! if you fail just because of the height requirement(which you should have passed), then it's really a pity!

i sure hope that 2nd time's the charm!

i should've tiptoed huh! when i got to know i was measured as 156cm, it threw me off a lil and i started panicking. I didn't even smile when it was my turn to walk.. :???:

anyway wear long pants so when you tiptoe, it wont be so obvious! :twisted:

I was measured at 157cm during the 4Mar07 SQ interview...and i got rejected immediately coz i was 1cm short. But well my height is more than 158cm i am very sure since itz clinically proved by my Dr. *sighz* Can i still go for the 21-22 April open day? although the 6mth waiting period is not satisfied?...i am juz wondering wat do i do 2 increase my height aiyo losing sleep over this...

if i've read correctly, the 6 mths ban is only applicable if you've gotten up to the management round, and got rejected then.

don't take my word for it though. :) i posted a link (on the page just before this) that has some stretching exercise akin to yoga/ pilates. hopefully it'll help! don't lose sleep over this, there's other jobs out there, as well as other airlines. besides, lack of sleep might cause break- outs, which we so don't need right now. :D

6 month waiting period i will juz have to keep my fingers crossed coz when i d/l the application form at the end of the form there is a clause asking if i have applied to SQ b4 or not and for wat position, itz a yes or no section.

Thanks for the link Fizus...i was looking thru your recommended website :)

Fizus, cute website! thanks for sharing :D

it's so heart-breaking to prepare everything and head to the recruitment only to find be just a measly one of two cm short!

a friend I met went on to the kebaya round but had her height measured 157cm by the lady there. She passed the first measurement though. sigh....

it seems so arbituary. Although aviation laws specify 158cm, I still feel that SIA can be a bit more lenient and flexible like Emirates or something.

girls remember to straighten your back, keep your chin level and neck fulllllllly extended during measurement!

geets007 & emalf; no worries! hope it works for all of us. :D

zcarina; i guess that is really to your own discretion? if you feel like you need thicker make- up, by all means go ahead. stewardesses wear quite a bit of make- up too. but light make- up might also go a long way in showing 'you have little to hide'. i'm not so sure about this. as mentioned, i'm not a make- up person. haha.

manicure and pedicure; only to ensure your nails are clean and pleasant- looking of course. imho, covered shoes are the most appropriate form of footwear at interviews, so no one will see your pretty toes? hehe. unless you get to kebaya round where you have to wear the SIA slippers i guess. but whatever you do, make sure its a solid, simple colour. no flashy designs/ colours, cuz as mentioned before in previous postings, recruiters can be quite old- fashioned (no visible tattoos, non- ear piercing etc).

its a water confidence test; they'll be looking at how confident you are in the water. :) while you should still look well- groomed before and after, keep in mind the effects jumping into water from a high point might have on even the most waterproof make- up. dripping wet mascara, anyone?

questions at management round varies, as i've read from previous postings. there is clearly no one standard answer, my dear. at this point they're trying to decide if you really have what it takes to join them. there's a multitude of questions available to test this out. read postings from "SIA Recruitment 4th March" as well as "SIA Cabin Crew", there's alot of tips there.

meLyana; i guess the height issue is a concern for us all. don't give up just yet! :D try to do the stretching exercises i posted up, even if it doesn't work at least you know you tried your best to get this job!

Deshi; yeap, from what i hear/ read, no more tea parties. its self- intro in group, kebaya, individual interview, water confidence, management & medical only now. did i miss out anything guys?

sigh. what a long post. well, off to school i am. :D

seems like a lot of us are worried about the height issue! although i'm 1.6, i'm worried too! there was this girl i met, who went for the interview and they measured her 1.6. but the thing is, she is 1.65! i guess all we can do is stretching before you go for the interview and make sure you like, "stretch yourself out" at the interviews. :lol:

as for pedicure and manicure.. you might wanna go for a manicure but pedicure is not really necessary. but yeaa, it doesn't hurt to go for pedis and manis, right? it makes you feel so good! :lol: the thing is, just keep your nails clean and properly filed. that should be fine..

when i went for the jan one, i saw a lot, ALOT of girls with manicured red nails. and bunned hair. and the standard blue eyeshadow red lipstick make up. some even wore kebayas!
