Dun fret, go there n enjoy the interview. i know its easier said than done (cliche cliche..) but if u percieve it as some gathering, u know, SDU or something.. tt'll prob take some pressure off.

:lol:


tinkertinker,

Job placement postponed slightly so yet to know who's my boss but it's a 5 days work week which is kind of interesting. Previously I was from the media and now I'm just trying again for the SQ recruitment. Just hoping to get in and get away from Singapore. Emirates is opened too and might just try for that! :shock:

Not really pressurized by the interview I guess. First time round was my first formal interview but I reckon I've grown more since then. But still gonna cross my fingers for this Sunday. :P


Hey citibank is not easy to get in rite?? Why u wana give up on that job?
Ur interview is this Sunday? Thats for the guys...rite?

This tread is getting longer and longer :shock:

I'm pretty shock to see that there are so many aspiring cabin crew in Singapore! :roll:

After reading these 110 pages of postings and replies, as an ex-cabin crew, I would like to highlight:
1) Don't keep asking what's the age limit for the recruitment. So long you are below 30 years old and you are interested in the job, send in your application.
2) Please make sure that you have at least 1.58m. If you have tried other measuring device and it shows 1.57m, dun waste your time applying. As you are required to undergo several measurements of your height before and during interview, as well as during training.
3) If you are not the kind of person who are willing to put on a smiling face and greet people "good morning" "good afternoon" "good evening" then forget about joining. This jobs requires you to smile and greet even to cleaners and maids... remember, even if your maid is on board the aircraft, she is your passenger and you need to make and serve her coffee... even if she puked, you will have to clean up for her.
4) Scars: so long your scars are not obvious nor 'protruding', dun worry about it. Chicken pox mark is not obvious in this case, so, dun worry.
P/S: I have a burnt scar on my leg and I declared. But as the kebaya covers it, they let me pass.
5) If you are not prepare to sleep alone in the hotel room, DO NOT APPLY. If you are scared of ghost (though you may not meet one in your career), DO NOT APPLY.
6) Hotel room: Yes, you will be given a room to yourself when you are overseas. And dun worry about the status of the hotel.... they won't put you in hostel or motel... haha...
7) If you need absolute freedom as in, you can't stand last minute call up for work (eg. you sleep at 11pm and was called up at 2am for 6am flight), then DO NOT APPLY.

Benefits are good in SIA. You are entitled to annual leave, medical and insurance benefits, free travel and discounted travel etc....

Calling all shortlisted candidates.. wat did u guys write in your cover letter that made the interviewers so impressed that they've got to see u face to face?? :)

Charity work? a penchant for travelling? customer svc experience? Please help!! Thanks in advance.



Hi,

I was short-listed for the interview, not too sure if it was the cover letter that did the trick but i do have some suggestions.


Firstly, i don't think it matters that much to them if you have experience in relevant fields. Most importantly, it is to highlight what you already have, make it your strength and sell to them how what you have can contribute to them.

Just a little theory on my end that i think will do the magic. =)

Cheers!


Hey guyz..

I just got back from Emirates walk-in interview in Bali! I submitted my CV on Day 1 and got called to have the group discussion on Day 2. Didn't succeed though..kicked out only after the 1st round. :cry: Let me give u some tips when it comes to cover letters : The airline prefers a short but complete version. Cover letter + 2 pages of your CV. Write systematically. Better use Arial Font, 12 or 11. Stay as conservative as possible. It's ok if you got no customer service experience (just like me!). Last but not least, do PRAY HARD. As an additional info, for those who are discouraged and think that you're too old to apply, PLS RE-CONSIDER. One of those who got selected yesterday is already 30 years old! So, you see, for some airlines, you'll never too old to apply. Good luck to u all!!

Citibank? It depends on what positions you wanna hold? Sales? Eventually bankers or something? I do not have any banking experiences thus I think is just that you need to know what you have to say and your level of confidence during the interview. As for the SQ, it offers me a different perspective and allowances in life.

And yes Sunday is for the gentlemen, :twisted:
