just some words of encouragment:

as some of you will know who is Kym Ng aka Zhong Qi from Channel 8. well she used to fly with SIA before joining Mediacorp. she tried 12 times before getting in.

so for those who have a passion for flying..go for it and don't give up!

thanks in advance!



There are no off days for CNY. You apply for annual leave and pray hard you get it. Every year, some Malaysian girl or other will beg me to do her flights so she can go back home. Well, guess what? I'm Chinese too...go figure. :wink:

Really? Or is this something that someone came up with as an encouragement?

Just a question, if after sending in your application by snail mail they invite you for the walk-in interview, what difference does it make?

Probably they'll have a general interview with you. If they see what they like they'll call you up for 'further interrogation'.

After 12 times! She might have memorised by hard all the questions being asked during her previous 11 interviews. By the 12th, it's just another routine thing to go through. I doubt if she felt nervous on her last interview.

The PM function will not work until you have made 5 posts, this is to prevent spam.

I know its good to try again and again until u got in. But for my case, im confident with my look and character, the thing is the last time i went for the interview, i got thru the first round with ease but the auntie checking the certs rejected me because i only got an O level, and she said i dun have relevant work experience. Im a police officer by the way ha. Guys for my case u think should i try again? Im confuse because for my case, its not looks, height or speech issues, its the damn paper haiz. pls advise.

Hi all who have passed the interview on last Sunday at Sheraton Hotel,
do you all mind sharing with me what were the questions being asked in every stage? What are the things I should prepare? nice formal dress code? I'm thinking of going for the KL interview!

Hey there, just go with a white top and dark bottom with a tie preferrbly cos it wuld make u look so much more presentable.. I initially didn't wana put on a tie too until I met a fren there who told me to do so.. Just bring ur relevant certs and be confident.. There is no fixed quest.. Most common quest is what u currently doin nw, hw is it relevant to SIA and why do u choose SIA.. Simple rite.. just speak wif ease and project urself and u can make it thru wifout much worries..
