Oh..ic..

That's very sad.
Now i don't know if i should still stick on to go for the interview or should i just give up?

I actually thought of trying & to prove them that I could do well in my job by not judging on my qualification.

I can even do very well in customer service since i've been recommended by my managers.

But if they wont even consider me bcoz of my cert den i think i stands no chance to even speak at all.

Forget it, airlines have certain criteria irrespective of your experience, best to work on getting the required certs if you so inclined.

It's not easily seen..only when you're sitting down and below my lip level are you able to see it fully (if I'm not sticking it out on purpose). I'm sure the interviewers are able to see as they are doing just that..sitting down while you stand. I don't want to take it out cos I just got both my tongue and navel done and do not want the hole to close up. Not able to wear those hidden retainers either as it hasn't heal completely yet. I think my chances are zero if I go w/o taking it out..any advice?


Won't they ask you to take out after you have signed with them?
It's not just a one-time thing. Unless you didnt make it through.
Either way, joining an airline means you are not suppose to have the piercings. I might be wrong though.

If you want the truth, it's a no. But SIA accepts anyone from any field so the motivation here is to try.

Ladies, if you do NOT try and have doubts about yourself, the chances are zero. But of course, please have the minimum requirements first yeah?

Well, you are not supposed to serve passengers with a tongue piercing.

Any accessories after work is fine but you will set tongues wagging even off duty. :-|

It takes a sacrifice if you want something badly. So weigh your own priorities. 8-)

On my recent flight to Auckland, I had the opportunity to chat with my ifs whom just came back from his tour of duty as an Internal Flight Auditor. He mentioned these about the 1st round interview as he was previously conducting it;

Smile - Without your smile, you're gone. It is very important to have that smile on you. Braces will play a part in their decision too.

Looks/Image - Looks are secondary as long as you are pleasant looking. I asked what happened to the girls recently, he mentioned that there was a rush during the mass recruitment so..... we had a good laugh about it. No offense. :P

Height - They do accept anyone whom might be 157.5 or 157cm. As long as you can reach the indicated line, you are fine. Some girls might have longer fingers so you will be able to reach that dream line. :twisted:

Eye contact - Please maintain eye contacts with the interviewers. We feel that those with "wandering" eyes are kinda rude so please remember this.

Posture - Do have a proper posture whether you are sitting or standing making your introduction. This portrays on yourself. Remember, you are being observed once you step into the room. The way you walk, stand and sit. 8-)

What I've mentioned are applicable for first round only. Any inquiries, please direct them to ineedhelpforinterview@singaporeair.com

Good weekend fellow ladies and gentlemen. :cool:

Minimum requirement is 5 O levels if I'm not wrong? Do you have that to begin with?

If you are referring to your diploma, do you think they will penalize you for not having the actual certificate on the actual day? :???:
