Yeah, guys no blazer round as far as i know.

If its a dream job to u, pursue it bro. Go jogging to tone down. 1.87m is very tall indeed, not many are even my height yest. 1 or 2 were taller than me of course.

Wish u all the best bro, and do look out for future walk-ins.

Not true... I heard from a friend of mine, his group... 7 people got in.


wha!!! 7 arh... is really a lot leh... my past few attempts never this high number of ppl pass lo..

i'm 69B... think there's more than 1000 ppl lo.. 1500++ ba... i saw ppl in grp 70++ de lo..

My group and some other group i saw mostly 2 get in nia lo.. but i think it's depend on who's your interviewer ba.. some of them not so strict some were like picking you like siao de..

mine was a nice interviewer he jokes to make atmosphere relax... but was out 1st roound...

hmmm maybe trying for etihad next week.. anyone going?? etihad...



hey venie!im the gal you ve spoken to in your group.im 69H...remember?hehe...

anyway...don give up...from what ive observed...SIA is really strict now,coz there will never be a lack of girls coming for the interviews and they can really be choosy...

n yah...most prob ill be going for Etihad..all the best! = ) :wink:


i remember you.. you wore all black de right, long hair... actually i thot you spoke quite well leh...

me also trying for etihads... wanna meet???


hehe..but i sounded quite nervous lah..anyway..i was wearing a black top but jeans.you r the one who was in the same poly coz as me right?..i met a friend who told me i really should not have worn jeans...nevermind lah...ill try again...

ok...can..but ill be going in the afternoon though...will be meeting another girl from the forum...you mind? :wink:


I am from the same poly as u as well! same course some more! keke!

well, i am not sure whether our attire affect the interviewers decision anot... i believe many of u seen gals who wear jeans.. .mini skirt... watever clothing u name it... they have it there... they just got thru...
the gal in our grp... the one who work in the bank and was "chatting" away with the male interviewer... she was wearing jeans too! and she got thru!!!

actually its better not to wear jeans at all.... coz even if u see pp wearing jeans and get thru. the 3rd round interviewer would most prob ask you. It happened to me on my previous interview, i wasn't even wearing jeans but the material looked denim. It had no pockets though. my interviewer asked me: why are you wearing jeans to an interview. And this was one of the first question she asked me. Quess her first impression of me wasn't tat good anymore. Moreover, ytd, one of my frens who went into the 3rd round got booted out. She was wearing jeans. But of coz i'm not sure whether it was coz of her dressing. But just to play safe, don't wear jeans at all....

SIA interview is like any other interview. presenting yourself well always leave a better impression. u'll never know when u'll get marked for being informal. Just be safe than sorry. In a way, show them the respect. Interviewers are also smartly dressed to interview you right? Show them that you put in the effort to groom urself, simplest way by dressing smartly with makeup.

I tried for the umpteen time yesterday and got booted out again at the first round..
Went home and cried my eyes out..sighz..
I felt so demoralised and sad...

Well, 2 yrs ago, i passed the mgmnet round but was told to do ' something bout my teeth' at the last round and get a review again before i can go for my medical checkup..
I didnt do it cos it it was a huge sum of money as quoted by the dentist..it was sth like cosmetic surgery..Dentist wrote a letter for me to fax it to HR..HR gave me a date for review but it felt on the day where I would be in thailand for hol..
Requested really politely for another review date and they agreed

When i came back, i called HR to set the time for the review and i was told the chance of my review had been forfeited since i didnt want to make changes to my teeth...

I wasnt told I couldnt apply for the nez 6 mths and i foolishly applied for the next interview..and ever since then, i had never made it past the 1st round..

sighz...Am so heartbroken and maybe i have really been blacklisted without me knowing...


Hi Gal....it'sme....I sms you today noon..did you get it??? i ask u to gimme ur MSN so tat i can add you.....

Hey do you mnd telling me abt wat did they want you to do with ur teeth??? I got extremely crooked teeth...dunno if u realise on sunday...... You make me scare to try another round liao.....so sad...... Wat can we do with the teeth thinggy.????? But did they check your teeth delibrately or wat on the mgmt round.....it was really wasted for you...but dun worry u can try other airlines...Emirates or eithad will be good to give a try....
