Tips for Successful Airline Interviews [My 2 Cents Worth]

Postby BaByAyuIcE » Fri, 24 Aug 2007 11:03 am

ok.. juz some 2 cents worth of tips for successful airline interviews from mi.. for ur own readin pleasure.. :D

went before 3 interviews so far.. 2 sq and 1 silkair [bt i'm hopin to get into silkair instead of sq]. anyway.. from wat i've experienced so far.. although i failed all 3 times [bt the failures wun stop mi].. i guess wat they're lookin into.. is ur image and ur confidence lvl [from the way u tok and present urself]. also.. how much u love diz job and willin to put in for diz job.

for instance.. during grp interview.. if they ask u to do a self intro den good for u. tok abt why u wan to join sq/silkair [personally and not who and who motivated u.. ur who and who also in diz job blah blah]. dun say anything which is unrelated. remb dat diz job is into cust svc line so make use of diz pt. however.. if they shoot a direct open-ended qns on u which has no rite or wrong ans.. den good luck to u. itz based on hw u present urself liao. juz remb diz key word.. confidence. bt dun be too over-confident.. yah?

and image.. key word.. neat and tidy.. maybe plus smart. so for long hair galz.. maybe cn tie up or preferably bun up ur hair. also the most impt key point here.. SMILE! juz smile all the time lah.. i noe itz hard.. bt i tink smilin cn kip ur nervousness away.

ok.. nw here's wat i've extracted from a website [Little Dot Dot Academy Pte Ltd @ http://www.reddot.sg/star.html ]

hey..thats good tips..luckalso counts mah..hopefully won't waste my hard earned transport fee to the interview

they are looking for a person who is suitable for the position..maybe someone with a outgoing personality who talk a lot..i feel sad for those dying to get the positon but they are rejected...it is someting related to customer service...you just need the qualities of a waitress :P

yah.. indeed luck counts in as a factor too. bt den again.. itz best to kip ur ans to their qns short and sweet.. most imptly.. related. too long also no good. make u look as if u're a veri long-winded gal. not related will minus points.

still remb wat my cousin once said to mi abt air stewardess job.. "air stewardess no diff from waitress job loh. bt juz dat it makes u look more glamorous bcoz u will be servin on air not on land". :(

If you do you research properly, you don't need to be a cabin crew to know that safety comes first, then service. This is not an open-ended question. This question reflects on how much you understand about being a cabin crew.

Exactly; the sole reason flight attendants are employed is for safety, airlines are not obliged to provide them for any other reason.

hey.. watever i hv typed and commented are really juz some of my personal views.. 2 cents worth.. dun bombard mi so hard.. yah? as i noe diff ppl hv diff perspectives diff opinions. so while some ppl may agree wif mi.. some ppl may not. ~ peace ~ :wink: :D

anyway.. during my silkair interview dat time.. during the 1-1 interview.. the interviewer asked mi if i've ever went before the sq interview.. i told her yes bt i'm out in the grp interview and she asked mi why i din get selected. i told her bcoz i din perform well enuff during the grp interview and she asked mi watz the qns. i told her the qns and she too said dat diz qns has no rite or wrong ans. :wink:
