managed to get into 2nd round but was booted out..probably i dont have the megawatt smile..but i keep on practising in front of the mirror..like some crazy woman...anyway, i hope my effort pays off! *cross finger*

tkns. =)
friends from SATS told me to have it as short as possible, roughly 30 secs. They just wanna know the exterior you.. the rest will be done by 1 to 1 interviewer.

i guess you just gotta tell them wats ur character. skip the bad ones of cuz. maybe tell them that you are customer orientated, you're approachable and stuff. that is if you've a cs background. if you dont have, prolly they know ur just lying ur way thru cuz if they were to question you and u dunno hw to answer... bam ! not good..

they will ask you how long will be your notice period for you current company. and perhaps they will hire you when your notice period is almost finishing ? during my management interview, they did oso mention to us if we are still working, we dun resign till the medical is thru but i am not working since 30th sept so i'm perfectly fine with this.

nopes. a lady from SIA called to inform me that i've cleared my medical and they will email me as the date draws nearer.

And the bond to pay is 13k.


southpaw - dont worry, you aint overweight. in fact i dont think they like their girls to be too skinny. like what my mama would say " no boobs no butt, where got nice ! " :D Just eat healthy... for me, i do supper almost everynite with my bf in the past till he complained.. otherwise, i'm always game for it ! lol.

oh and an advice, you dun need a megawatt smile, just a very sincere one.

for the ladies who have gone through the kebaya round, is there a big range of sizes for the kebayas? and roughly what is the biggest UK size they can fit? I'm quite fleshy, afraid i can't even fit into any of the kebayas! =( all the sq girls i've seen look so petite and svelte. also, is the kebaya stretchy?

Try using emirates 212cm as a guideline.
If you can reach that height with your arms, you don' have to worry much about that.

they are particular if your particular means you got to touch the red line they tape on the wall, which most ppl believe is around 210cm. you have to touch the red line, even tiptoe is ok, as long as u can touch it.
