I wish I had the courage to try out for Emirates because I heard the working culture there is great and the pay is excellent too. Just don't have the courage to be prepared to leave my family and bf behind if by some luck I get selected. Well, all e best to those who are trying out! :wink: Let us know how it goes!

Just saw the ad for emirates cc recruitment. Since when written n verbal skills in mandarin a requirement for a Dubai-based airline? If speaking arabic is essential, I wld understand but Mandarin?

It is also held on the 2nd day of hari raya which would eliminate the possibility of any Malay/Muslims candidates unless they dun enjoy Hari Raya and happens to speak and write Mandarin as well. I'm not racist or anything but I sense a great deal of prejudice here.

Then again maybe Emirates has too many Malays. LOL :lol:

Anyway I saw the ad too and to my understanding it was stated that verbal and writing Mandarin is essentialBUT that doesn't necessarily means it's COMPULSORY,no??Correct me if I'm wrong but think it doesn't hurt to try even if u do not have that skill cos U'll never know...psst...I might give it a go..and yes I'm a Malay that doesn't write in Mandarin but I do have the basic grasp of the language...well..let's just see what happens :wink:
