Hi, are there any specifications for the full-length photo sent in? e.g. the background should be blank, dress code etc? Btw, do you guys usually apply online or send in by postal? :o

Hmmm, does anyone know if short-sightedness would affect the chances of being selected? Does SIA allow cabin crews to wear contact lens? :-|

nope, your chances are not affected unless you r super super short-sighted and will require to wear glasses. contact lens are ok :)

well, try to use a plain background i suppose. you wouldn't want the background to fight for attention with ya right? dress code wise, many have advised to wear formal but mine was informal (top and skirt) though. at this point, they would want to see if your qualifications meet their requirements and a rough gauge of how you look like. i think it's more advisable to send in by postal EARLY cos your email might get bounced back.

hope the information is useful to you, kiki! when are you applying?

Hi Plyn,

Thank you so much for the precious info. I'm waiting for their next recruitment next round..missed the round in Dec.. Or do you suggest I should just send in my application now? How about yourself?
Actually I have another concern regarding skin scarring. I have some visible scars on my thighs & arm.. would it matter? Would the selection round include screening in this respect?

They won't bother looking at your application. You just have to wait til the next local recruitment drive for you to send in your application.

hi kiki,

hmm. i dun suggest that u send in yr application now since they are NOT having a recruitment yet. like wat singaporegrrl said, they'll probably dump it in the dustbin. so just wait patiently for the next recruitment.

as for me, i sent in my email application just the day before the dateline. and being a typical singaporean, i sent in my application thru postal on that same day, JUST IN CASE the email doesn't get thru. :wink:

for round 1, it's more based on their first impression of you, whether you can carry a conversation anot and a rough gauge of how you look like. dun mention your scarrings yet - it will be suicide, trust me. if you get thru this, then worry about it later on in the other rounds :)

cheers,
plyn

in the year 2007, SIA will upgrade its requirements for cabin crew due to overwhelming number of applicants.

i heard it will be something like this...

Degree preferably with Honour..
Ability to speak 3 languages..
Atleast 2 years experience in hospitality related industry..
For female, minimum height is 1.70m...

Looks like it is gonna be tough!!

I was in the lift at airport and i heard two cabin crew executives and a chief stewardess talking among themselves..

Looks like most of you can forget about being a cabin crew!

Dear Donno,

I don't think this will be happening, if that's the case, they might need to recruit stewardess from other countries. To be frank, how many girls in this forum is at least 1.7m and hold a degree? 3 languages is quite ok though and this might be acceptable but the 1.7m? :???: I don't think so.

Anyways, I hope this won't be true. Otherwise, with Singapore Girl as other nationalities, was the point?

Best Regards,
Julie

A degree? So foreign applicants will need a higher qualification? Remember Indian/Indonesian applicants? They need a degree to apply for SQ.

Female minimum height of 1.7m? Where can you get Asian applicants of at least that height? Probably those who don't make it to Miss Universe or Miss World pagents should apply? Haha!
