was intending to try out for SIA after getting my dip results.
now my parents would rather i obtain my degree before i work -.-
true enough,a dumb piece of paper is so important in singapore esp when your flying career don't exacly seems lasting.
i guess i can only try after my degree.hope by then i'm not too old =(

good luck for all who's trying !! hope to hear some good news and exciting details from your interviews !! =)


iammyy... are your parents' words the be all ends all? i'm sure there's a way to compromise, it is after all, your life we're talking about here. if what you want is to fly, why not fly not and pursue that degree later?

SIA Cabin Crew industry is not eternal, but you can always pursue your degree after a few years of flying. if you're thrifty, you could save up and pursue a degree at a better university too. :)

that said, follow your heart. and try and talk it out with your parents. i'm sure if they see this is what you really want, they'd be more than happy to allow you to pursue it. they want what's best for you after all.

xmischax; yeah, i am very likely going. still at a loss as to what to wear. urgh. so frustrating. don't want to look too dull in office wear, but at the same time need to maintain a degree of respect for the employers. :???:

Even so, why do you want to reduce your chances if there is any? For interviewees to pass the initial interviews in their casual wear, I'm sure they have something which caught the eyes of the interviewers but that do not spell for all?

Do not always have this mentality that what others are capable of pulling off is achieveable by yourself. :?

I rather you to play safe than to be sorry isn't it people? :-|

good to see that you girls are pursuing your dreams!

regarding attire, office wear is fine. dont worry about looking dull, you dont have to stick to a black blazer. you can try an all-white suit, a shirt dress or you can also look smart in a coloured blouse (short sleeve is okay too) and pants. like M said, best not to wear casual. it's an interview afterall.

hair wise, I would say it's better to tie your tresses up neatly. no need for a french twist or bun but it's your own preference yeah? :)

for makeup, natural look will be fine. I'd suggest just foundation, concealer, eyeliner, mascara, blush and lipgloss.

and yup, the queue does start really early. there's usually lots of girls in queue by 9am but the crowd slows to a trickle by 11am. So either you'd wanna go early when the interviewers are fresh (I'd think this is better) or go later to avoid the crowd.

do note that the coming recruitment is for both stewards and stewardess so things might change and more people will turn up!

hope this helps... just sharing what I observed.

Good luck gals!
