and thank God i made it thru round 4 as well... that happened on wednesday 21/1/09..

i heard that SIA has plans to cease its employment plans for now..
it is like still a rumor among the HR side.. cos i heard directly from the admin..
so she actually said its quite lucky for me to get a pass now.. most prolly the last batch for now.. if the rumor is true..

this is my 3rd try.. and at my previous 2 tries.. i always get kick out in round 1.. so ppl.. dont give up really.. just keep trying and even psycho yourself..
what i learnt from experience is.. if you want to be 1.. you think like 1, act like 1, walk like 1, and be like 1... and believe you are what they want and you are as good as any qualified SIA crew out there now..


still hiring, slowing down thats all

Yes, it does include. However, they don't really bother what your eye sight is. 500+, 1000+ they don't care. They only concern your eye sight AFTER you wear your CONTACT LENS. :) hope this ease your tension.

They do, only that those who are interviewing in Singapore needs to be a citizen or PR. They recruit Japanese, Korean, India National, PRC, Taiwanese, Indonesian.. and interviews are held in their respective countries :) However, these countries recruitment scheme requires at least a degree in their criteria, and english proficiency level of 6.0? Can't recall, it's on their website anyway.


HOwever, Europeans no. :)
