Im also 27 this year!! And im trying out for SIA's flight stewardess position also... Im not sure if the age limit is @ 26 tho because Ive got friends(in SIA) who told me they met juz freshies who got in at the age of 28!
And a couple of years ago, another friend of mine who got in at the age of 25, said that she was surprised to find a 27 yr old girl in her training class... so i s'pose it all boils down to your CRM experiences, communication skills, the number of foreign languages u know etc.
Have u tried writing in yet? Any success?
the 1st time i tried, i was 26 years old, and i was invited to the interview. but didn't make it thru.
so i applied twice again, when i turned 27, but never once got a reply from them. so disappointed... i speak a 3rd language, but prob, they dun need it...
i was sick with gastric flu and cough when i went for the interview last time. wasn't in a very good frame of mind, i guess, feeling tired, look sickly and tired... so now, i hope that i can have another chance again.
are u sure there are newbies age 26-28?
this time round, i did apply, but no reply from them yet...sooo sad...
hi Hopless and FAwannabe and karen
dun worry, just keep trying and dun worry abt the age thingy. my friend got in on her 3rd attempt & she was 26 years old then. she has been flying for 5 years. at her time, it was a walk-in-interview.
she also met new trainees who are age from 26-29 year old. and i get to know a girl thru my sister, who is also a flight stewardess. she was 28 years old when she got in late last year and she applied 8 times before she got in. and she wasn't typical slim girl, more towards the big-boned type of girl.
so just keep applying and who knows, u might just be the one they are looking for in one of their recruitment.
also, sharon au, the artiste, who was once a stewardess with SIA, told me that the cut off age for locals (singaporean) is 29 years old (i asked her cos i was interested in applying but i was then 26, now 27). so we can keep trying till then. btw, i am working in mediacorp in the filming area, that's why i get to work with sharon.
and i saw kym hg before. and she wasn't tall at all, think about 157cm only. and she was shorter than me quite a bit, i am abt 161cm. so, height isn't too much of a problem if u are 157cm, i suppose.
and i saw the post that jll post, the girls in SIA are really in various looks. from pretty to average-looking and some slightly below average i think.. hee... no offences taken, i just say who i feel. me no beauty either.
the photos, u can take a look: http://photos.yahoo.com/woohoo123123123
all the best to all the girls out there! keep ur dreams alive!
