Aza & Jojoleona, thanks for the advice!

I am currently in Shanghai - without my IC and my full length photo!
Am arriving back in SG on 14th morning, then I was planning to rush and get all the documents ready then drive to the airport and drop off the env at the PO Box address. BUT i just realised that since it's at the Airport, it might be at a secured area?!

:roll:

*die* I guess I can only try and find out.....

Yes!

Do be prepared for such an interview. You'll be required to translate from English to Mandarin. Do some homework before going to the interview, it'd definitely help a lot.

Tip: Go find out how to say phrases like:
1) Adjust seat back to the upright position
2) Lift up window shades etc.

Learn all that in Mandarin! :) Impress them!

FYI - Speedpost cannot do same day delivery to PO boxes! I almost had a heart attack @ the post office! I had to go down to the Post Office @ airport T2, pay 50cents and ask the postmaster to help me pass it to the ppl collecting the BA mail. I hope it gets to them...

Meanwhile... fingers crossed! Wonder when will we get a response -
I want to go for a holiday in Dec but can't decide as I'm worried that the dates will clash with any interviews!

Anyway - Good luck to all!

That i didnt know. Thot the website stated within 1.5hrs at $22.40, must have missed out the terms and conditions.

Haiz. getting more and more empty. :evil:

Anyway, BA has a office in the terminal 1, so dun worry. If the postman is nice enough, your application should reach them on time. :cool:

Yah, dunno when will we know whether will be shortlisted! Im like waiting for money to drop from the sky.! But since they mention interviews will be held in Dec & Jan, I guess we will only get response from them in Dec? Did anyone applied for any other airlines? Heard there's SIA interview on the 23rd Nov.
