i'm not worried abt the dress code.... i tink as long u are comfortable in it.. u'll look ok....

i'm more worried abt the image i potray myself.... like when i talk to my friends or colleague.. i'm ok.. but when during SIA interview................... will alw feel so weird and v-not-myself mode!

Thanks for the advise

well cuz a few of my friends advising diff stuff,
one got in cuz she ticked no, infact she went 4 times and she's now flying for half a year and another told me be honest... confused but i guess might as well, cuz if u're good ur good.. no point lying.. =)

well, gonna be first try for SIA, i tried silkair recently and can't even get in second round lol.. but yea guess have to be truthful then =)

My opinion on this?

Be honest.


Honesty goes a long way.

Imagine u make it to management,
they tell u "lying is NOT accepted and u've been caught lying" and then they show u to the door the minute after u greet them (interviewers) good morning.

How is that?


Gurl, don't listen to others. Do wad u think is right.

if u think that lying is right, go ahead.


There are gurls who get in, in their 8th try, also stating its their 8th try. They didn't lie.

So gurl, there's absolutely nothing u have to hide from them. :lol:

Should I?

Postby fizus » Wed, 28 Mar 2007 1:59 pm

hi guys...

I emailed SIA when they had the March Recruitment, asking if I should go for the interviews now or should I wait for the end of my semester (I graduate end of this year). They advised me to attend interviews 1- 2 months before graduating...

but from what i've read so far, some take more than 1 try to get through. and i'd hate to be in a situation whereby i am jobless after graduating, because I didn't make it through the SIA interviews.

should I just go for this next recruitment then? My availability would be in December, which honestly, to me already, sounds like quite a bit of a stretch. What do you guys think?

most prob ppl will tell you to wait... i tink SIA will not reply you.. well personally i tink maybe you can try the next recruitment to get a feel of it.. if you are chosen, they say ur availability is too far, den at most try again. no harm right? by then, when u are really ready in dec.. things will b easier? :)

I've had a friend who applied in Sep last year when he ORD in march this year. That's a 6 mth gap. My understanding is they will wait, but if their HR told you to try at a later recruitment, then maybe you would like to try from the June/ July period onwards. Recruitments are held about every 2 mths, so you got bout 3 tries from June to Dec. Just my 2 cents worth.

FIZUS - hi there, i think you should just go now as and when they have recruitments cos if u get in, they will just book you in and put you aside waiting for you. but if u wait til 2mths before you grad there might be a chance you dont get it and have to go searching for a job and that will really give you a headache.

go for APRILS recruitment drive.

by the way, are you a female or male ? how old r you?

hope to chat more with you.. got MSN?

hi there,

i have a question. because i've visited SIA website just now and the it seems to me that it's a walk-in application form. does it mean that we don't need to hand in or send by post any application form before the interview is conducted? just walk-in will do? (i'm a malaysian)

as far as i know, we have to send in our application form 1st, and wait for SIA to reply. only if we're shortlisted, then we could attend for the interview. this is what happened to my friend who took her interview in this february, and my limited knowledge from this forum.

best regards,
connie.

hey corines143... i'm new here so i can't PM you... PM me your email add and i'll add you. :)

i'm 22 this year, female, malay, NUS undergraduate.

intrinsic dreamer; after your post, i'm worried as to whether i have "the look". the malay stewardesses i see all look alike (that certain 'look' again [so subjective i know]) and i don't fit this bill. but i guess i won't know till i try it out.

i don't mind trying out for this april's recruitment but... its 2 days before my exams, and i don't know if i can afford the time. furthermore, i'd like to be at least slightly prepared (what planes does SIA fly with, basic stats like that) so i don't know if i can mug for my exams and prepare for this interview at the same time.

my concern is if i do go for this april's recruitment inadequately prepared, i might not get through and in so doing, have to wait another 6 months (right?) before trying again. that's certainly a luxury of time i can't afford.

on the other hand, it will indeed be a relief to know i have a job ready by the time i graduate if i make it past the april's recruitment.

still mulling it over... sigh.

Dear girl.
don't worry.

There's nothing to prepare for, for the walk-in.
I didn't prepare too. :)

U just need to know wad to say to intro about urself.

They will not test u on SIA's company information.


If i'm not wrong, they do not look for the "LOOK" during the walk-in. Its only at the management. The ladies there are more strict.

Haha Intrinsic Dreamer,

I think you deserve the job bcos i've seen many SIA crews and the way you talk and how you present yourself make me feel like you are 1 of them. Even those not so friendly comment you can still deal with it, that's the very good point especially in customer service line. Just 2 days ago, my client threw her money on the table when she made the payment, i was really angry and thinking, hello auntie is not $1000 business is only $13 hor... but still, i have to give her back the $1 change(both hands) with a warm and fake but sincere smile...

Although i'm so much older than you but after reading your post, i realise i've a lot to learn from you. I think i take it too serious when i went for the interview reason being i want it so much that i can't control my mindset. :wink:

I'm really glad that you got in! I think i'll probably see you and M and other members who are going for training somewhere near my workplace. I really wonder why they will go there bcos it doesn't seems to be a training centre nearby :roll:
