was wondering if tomorrow's interview will be the same as the walk-in interview, 10 girls doing introduction round or will it differ?

my slot is tomorrow and im wondering if i've prepared enough, prepared a self introduction and why i want to join SIA. :) so nervous! thanks for any help!


self introduction can be the norm but please be prepared for other scenarios or questions posed to you. can be anything under the sun.

what im trying to say here is, do not focus too much on self introduction. know the gees of it, what you need to say and not what you have to say. have a clear mind when you go in, and when someone else is presenting herself, maintain eye contact and smile at the peeps infront of you. :devil:

So, is the ia just as good about bringing me a scotch as the fss? I can never remember all the colors. No booze going to KL anyway.

what are you needs and what are you wants? are you following me now? :P

i always believe, the moment you step into the room, the interviewers have started to observe you.

your body language is crucial. they will be observing you even when you are not presenting and thus the need to maintain occasional eye contact with them, and not forgetting your smile. occasionally turn and look at the presenter as he or she still deserves your attention. note the word occasional. dont overdo it.

so as to speak, its not really what you have said which will impress them but rather the whole package since you stepped into the room. remember your body posture and smile. show your darlie smile to them.

what ive written are based on my experience and observations so spare me the rod yeah. :P

nah, usually the ia doesnt work onboard. they only stand and observe everyone else. they are onboard primarily because of check reports on individual. :roll: :roll:

hi, if you are really keen in this job, why not take a full day off for it? why do you wanna go through the mental stress of reporting back for work? this will affect your mental state while waiting for the relevant interview later in the day. :shock: :shock:

i do not know the current sequence like. if management is within the day, you will probably take up a day. the waiting time can be tedious. :-#

i've always been following you. hahaha!

phew~ i read somewhere we need to keep looking at the interviewers and i thought it was crappy cos it prolly make the rest of the girls invisible. so it's alright that i maintain eye contact with the other girls when i'm presenting right?

okay, somhow i feel i'm a little cranky now.

I'd like to ask, how is the culture like amongst the cabin crew in SIA? And is it very lonely up there?

really nervous bout the interview! seriously, what should our self-introduction include? name age previous school, experience and stuff? or should it include the reason we want to join SIA.

also, what would be a classic appropriate outfit for the interview?

thanks for your help!! :)

its improving. time has evolved, so have the crews. as long as you are hardworking, you know your work, its fine. follow the black and white, literally no one will and can touch you.

the only sad part, with the introduction of internet, now crews hardly gather together outstation. :-({|=
