:) thanks for quick reply, I am 20 born chinese. I graduate from ITE with a Nitec Cert of Digital Media Design, currently working under a post house doing motion graphics design since jan 06. I understand my work exp has nothing to do in the servicing line, then again, I wish that this doesnt affect my resume. I would like to know what's your view? Thanks once again.

cheers! :)

They are pretty stringent with that...as for experience...its ok if its not relevant....

No, I do not have. But I am pretty sure ITE Cert is definitely better then "O" Level cert. Even it's Nitec? Moreover I doubt they just want to ensure that you has a grade/pass for english. Glad to know that my working exp will help even it's irrelevant. Btw, I hope I did not offend "O" levels holder. I just wish to encourage Nitec graduates and at the same time, It's "NOT" The End to Study in ITE. They have peoples who still made it to Universities.

:oops: sorry to bring up the universities thing. I understand it has nothing to do with SIA/being a Flight stewardess. My focus is each should have confident with themselves even I myself is lacking of this. But I hope that we can encourage each other here, even all of us are stangers.
And hopefully we all fly together* ;)


Let's do more re-search of being a flight stewardess.
Be prepared is the 1st step to confident.

Firstly, I would like to highlight (For Malaysian qualifications, a minimum grade of B4 in English at "SPM level")) not "O" level. Yes, they didnt mention that singaporeans can apply with ITE Cert, but that doesn't mean we can't. I believe there's a possible if you give it a try. Only if you think that a diploma holder can do a better management/servicing/speaks fluent english, then i assure you that you're picking on ITE grads.
Or you probably lose your confident to just an ITE holder.

I apologise if I am being harsh, but i hope my english is clear enough for you to understand.

I am here seeking for an encouragement, confident and infomations here, not any argument. :-|

I wish we can fly together.

hi there

yes that is true nowadays SIA is getting stricter and want their GIRLS to be a graduate. so if u have a degree that helps heaps but if not they will need to see at least a dilploma. some were told to leave when checking for their certs.

All The best.

cheers

Hi there, I believe walk-in is the fastest way and coolest way*
But no harm to write in too. (I would love to try write in too, but what's the postage yeaa?))
I send my application via email twice a day, still i hasnt get any reply.
Some may already received them and I can only discourage you by
"blame on our luck" not receiving the replies.

No worries too. I read it somewhere about the walk-in interview will be either on the 18/19/20 OCT. Not sure where will it be held.

please keep us update.

Really?
That sounds so uncool to me.
And a pretty harsh discouragement for ITE grads.

Good luck to you too. :-|

Agree on qualification isn't everything, but that doesnt means nothing too.
Knowledge is the gift. Hope to bring out the right msg to all.

Hi maggielu,
No one is underestimating the capabilities and potential of ITE graduates. However I believe not many of those in Higher Nitec have achieved at least 5 O level credits. Hence the chances for an ITE graduate are slim or perhaps none unless you've got the 5 O level credits.

Well, you could still try if you wish. But in any case you’re unsuccessful, it is best to upgrade yourself in academic wise instead of pondering if people are underestimating ITE graduates. After all most job in Singapore now requires a minimum of diploma. Anyway you can always try for SilkAir. They do accept N level graduates.

No offence in whatsoever. I am just sharing my point of views. :wink:
