Simple ain't it?

Thank you for your advise but i still mention Singapore being my favourite country as it's my 1st try.I appear too nervous therefore i didn't manage to perform well.

Just think of a country you would enjoy visiting and buy yourself one of the 'Lonely Planet' travel guides as a start and then extend your knowledge from there. Don't rely on simply knowing Singapore: that's where you live and is more business orientated than anything else.

round 1 - group interview.
self intro and why you wanna be a cabin crew.

selected ones will be asked to wait for your turn to check certs.

then we're being directed to a room for round 2 - kebaya & skin check

if you get shortlisted again, you go into round 3 - 1to1 interview
which is where i got booted out.

final stage is the management round.

i recommend you read this page: http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/ft ... 14235.html

and do browse through this forum thread to find out more, what could be asked and all that jazz..

A few more doubts

Postby baby11 » Mon, 28 Jan 2008 1:20 pm

I'm 26yrs old turnin 27 tis year..hav tried a few times with SQ..sometimes I passed the 1st round, sometimes I don't, there's even once I went til the swimming & check complexion round but kana kicked out..As i hav jus gotten married lately so i'm thinkin is it bcos my change of status & age is affecting my chances? cos tis time round, there were 6 gals selected from my group of 10..which is considered a lot compared to my previous times which they always only select like 2-3 gals for 1st round...sighz...
