"They are mostly looking for people with attitude, poise, who can really bring themselves well enough, maybe intellectual, and proper command of English. " ---- Hmm..That's what i used to tot too though, hee but seemed like its no longer this case. The last time I went, a girl who had pimples and with messy hair and dress pass round 1, likewise for another girl who's been stammering throughout her speech passed that round too, not to mention another girl who spoke perfect singlish passed too. Or perhaps, thats' the 'natural-ness' they are looking for??
hah, true true.
we can say SIA go for looks and good command of english and poise. but there are a lot of times where the girls spoke bad english and so nervous that they stammered or dress so sloppy with tees and jeans/shorts with slippers/sandals got in. or someone with pimples on their faces, no make-up, unruly hair got in too.
or someone with an into speech like : i just want to try and see how far i go in the interview, my 1st love is accounting but i want to try for cabin crew cos it is something that u do it while u are young, hi my name is XXX, i am here for the SIA interview, i like to travel and meet people.
and they got in. so i guess lady luck plays a big part in it.
we can't dissect what the interviewers want cos there are a lot of different interviewers during the walk-in, so different interviewers have different sets of rules n expectations. thus, maybe i set of interviewers like you, but the other set doesn;t like you.
so we just got to keep trying and trying!
i've been trying like 8 times! hahahah...
