Why you should not apply as a Flight Attendant?

having second thoughts? If you’re thinking about working as a flight attendant, I list down things that can be encountered if you apply as a flight attendant. This is gonna be all the Details that you might want to know before you move out of the country and become a flight attendant.

 

Why you should not apply as a Flight Attendant?

 

Why you should not apply as a Flight Attendant?

 

Homesickness

Homesickness is real. There are some people who are home sick to the point they are having suicidal thoughts and what not and some people do not finish their contract because of the loneliness that you would feel if you move to a different country. You have to be Physically, mentally and emotionally ready to move out of your comfort zone because it is really Different. Everything it’s gonna be hard if it’s your first time to to adjust you need to be flexible you have to make new for new friends new connections.

 

Culture shock is real!

Do not apply as a flight attendant if you are not open to new cultures for example you are a Christian your whole life and you saw some Arab or Muslim do their things and you don’t like the way they are doing things. You need to accept that other people have other ways of doing things and you know this is how they do it in their culture. You have to respect that and you have to open to that or don’t judge them.

 

You need to study a lot as a flight attendant.

Third thing that I want to talk about on this blog is that do not apply as a flight attendant if you do not like studying. Because it may come as a shock to most of you But flight attendant study a lot especially before a flight and most specially when you just first got your job there is a training, and if you fail the training you’re “Out” from your job. You study about the airplane the emergency procedures every single scenario that might happen when you are on air and there’s nobody there, people rely on you because you’re the one in charge so you have to train. You have to be able to to memorize every single procedure.

 

Jet-lag is real guys!

That item number four let’s say you have made it to the training, congratulations you are now flying! But something will hit you in the face and you wont even see it coming. Jet lag is real. There will be times that you won’t know what date time and there will be times that your body clock is really messed up and it’s really hard to fix it because one day you will travel to Europe and the next flight destination is Asia. Also you need to take care of your body because after long flight and you can’t sleep as much. Unless you are ready for this jet lag thingy, Flying would be great!

There is no I in the word TEAM

Don’t apply as a flight attendant if you don’t want to work with people. so what do I mean by this? You are flying with the team, and their are your seniors and colleagues. Sometimes those colleagues of yours are hard to work with or they are too toxic to work with. Sometimes you just have to let it be and do your best. If you don’t want to work in a team I suggest you refrain from applying as a flight attendant.

 

Flight attendant = Customer Service

Customer Service is the bread and butter of being a flight attendant. Do not apply as a flight attendant if you don’t think that customer service is the industry for you. It basically means taking care of passengers, you have to keep them happy. In short you need to serve them. Passengers will always have something to complain or request. So if you don’t think that you can act professionally or if you can’t enjoy serving other people,  then this is not for you.

 

I might sound that I don’t want you to be a flight attendant but I am just warning you guys about this job so you have expectations. This is just the basic things that you will experience throughout working as a flight attendant. So that’s it for the blog guys, I hope you guys learned a thing or two.

Perks of a Flight Attendant | FAST Series #4

Hey guys, it’s MissKayKrizz, And today we are gonna talk about the perks of being a flight attendant. So guys, if you are interested, Just read on!

Perks of a Flight Attendant

 

Perks of being a Flight Attendant!

 

First Perk: Free tickets but not so totally free tickets.

P.S for PAL express

 

The first perk that that I want to talk about is Having free unlimited tickets to all the destinations of PAL express. That means we can get a free charge or FOC tickets. We just need to apply the destination and do the process needed to get this FOC tickets and pay for the Airport fees which is 200 pesos and pay for the taxes which is around 70 to 100 pesos. With that, you get 10 tickets for free for yourself. So the thing here in the Philippines, the perks extends to your family so that you could also give this free of charge ticket to your  family as long as you register them in the H.R when you started flying with the company.

The thing with this perk that it’s not totally guaranteed that you have seat. You have to be on standby. So you have this free ticket and then if you want to go on a flight, if there are free seats, that’s the time you could use that free ticket of course. They will prioritize the paying customer and aside from paying customer they also prioritize by seniority what if other flight attendants are also waiting to get on that specific flight the free flight that you wanna go on. Most of the time they will go by seniority, first come first serve or who tells the captain first.

Industrial Discount

for Local Philippine airlines

Another perk that I really like in being a flight attendant here in the Philippines is that you can make use of the industrial discount. I use it all the time when I was in Cebu. A good example of this is that in Water front hotel they accept industrial discounts or those people who work in aviation. They give this discount to people who works in hotel, tourism and etc etc. All I have to do is give my ID and they have this package in water front I’m not sure if it still open that was like 6 years ago. They have this package almost like a thousand for somebody to use that package. You could either choose you your spouse and your children or you and your parents not available for your brothers and sisters perhaps on other companies they do it but for my previous one they don’t.

For International Airlines

Another perk, it’s an ID90 ticket that means you get 90 percent discount on the ticket price. For example let’s say a round trip ticket to the united states about 60 thousand pesos you can get it at around 6 thousand pesos plus taxes of course. You only have to pay the discounted price and the taxes. The ticket price is so low that’s one of the best perks of working international because you get international tickets as well because you get the destinations of the company you work.

International Airlines uses of their connections. They have a group like skytrax group or something like that. If your airline is part of that, all the destination of that group you could fly to it. For me as an international flight attendant even though the airline doesn’t fly to Amsterdam, I was able to get 90% discount ticket to Amsterdam using KLM airline because they are in cooperation with my airline. Of course it’s still a standby ticket and subject to availability and subject to first come first serve basis still that’s not really a problem.

The next perk that I want to talk about you get 40 days leave in a year. Imagine 40 days leave in a year.There is gonna be a system that all of you have a fair chance to get the desired date. As an international flight attendant the whole 40 days leave are paid. So if your basic salary is high then that’s good, You will have enough money to enjoy your leave.

For OFW

I want to talk about the perks that I didn’t experience as a local flight attendant but are available for international flight attendant mainly because you are an OFW contracted out of the country. So I have free housing, I don’t have to pay rent anymore my house is given to me, it’s really beautiful and it’s fully furnished and it has a lot of appliances, bed everything. I also don’t have to pay for the utilities. They pay for my water, electricity and my internet. Though the internet is not that good you have an option to apply for another ISP. The electricity it has a limit for free electricity if you exceed that limit then you have to pay for excess. Since you are an international flight attendant you don’t always stay in your house you are always outside the country.

Also the perk that I really like is we have free transportation. They have a scheduled time to pick you up, you just have to be on time and you don’t have to pay for your transportation. It’s so nice so you just have to follow their rules and you get to enjoy the free bus system.

 

 

So that’s it guys! basically that’s the perks that you would enjoy in being a flight attendant and this wraps up our flight attendant salary series. I hope that you guys enjoy this series And I hope you guys learned something from this article.

Flight Attendant Salary Talk Series # 3

Hey guys welcome to this third episode of this series, The Flight attendant salary talk series. Today we are going to talk about the International Flight attendant salary. Which are mostly based on the Middle East. Please refer to the first episode of this series because that is where I explain how the flight attendants get paid and that way you will  understand why the range in salary and why is it different per month.

Disclaimer!

This is just for informational purposes only and I do not guarantee that all the information in here is true or correct. It is all based on hearsay, friends. Please do not quote me on this, things may change or may not change.

pinaglihian si Daniel Marsh!Party!! (7)Episode 3: Flight Attendant Salary in the Middle East

 

Qatar Airways

So let’s talk about the Qatar Airways. They earn about anywhere from 60,000 to 100,000 pesos a month that includes everything, Flying time allowances and what not.

 

Emirates

When it comes to Emirates, it’s about the same. the difference with Qatar Airways is that they don’t give you your allowance upfront. You have to pay for your hotel expenses and then you will get your layover Allowances on your paycheck by the end of the month. That’s why your allowance increase gradually Emirates. The average take-home pay is Minimum 50,000 pesos to 100,000 pesos plus depending on the flying time allowances bonuses that you get.

 

Etihad Airways

With Etihad Airways I think it’s about 60,000 to 100,000. I think with Etihad Airways they have bigger salary but not that much although I am not that sure but that’s what I heard they have bigger Allowance depending on your rank. If you become a Premium galley crew or if you become like a business class crew, it has bigger salary. The pay structure is quite good as well as with Emirates and Qatar. If you become supervisor it has bigger salary than a regular crew it’s bigger than 50,000 to 100,000 pesos.

 

Oman Air & Gulf Air

With almond air is also the same, usually 50,000 to 80,000 pesos Depending on the factors that I’ve mentioned on the first episode of the series. For Gulf Air, it’s also the same 50,000 to a 100,000 pesos.

 

 

That’s the salary range. In the end of the day, Middle eastern airlines differentiates from how they give their allowance to you. The good thing about middle east, is you have no taxes. So you get your full salary then you have lots of allowances, lots of perks. When you work for other airlines for example Korean air or ASEAN or when you are in the United States They have taxes, in the Middle East, no tax baby. Everything is tax-free So that’s why I like working there.

I hope that you don’t quote me on these Flight attendant salary. This is just something that I learned through people that I talk to it’s not from the company itself of course. They could change their salary With their own discretion it’s not like up to me And I do not take any responsibility or liabilities by the information that is found in this video. that’s it.

I hope that you guys learned something from this blog, I hope I it give you some motivation to work harder or to apply to international airlines.

Flight Attendant Salary

 

Episode 2: How much is the Flight Attendant Salary in the Philippines

 

Philippine Airlines International

For Philippine Airlines International they earn about fifty to sixty thousand pesos a month. That involves everything basic salary, flying hours, layover salary and all the other bonuses. It really depends on the flying time because I used to work for them but I was assigned in Cebu and the flying time is kind of different. If you’re assigned in Manila, there are more flying time so it will range about twenty to thirty thousand or even forty thousand pesos a month.

Cebu Pacific Air

Some of my friends have flown there and they told me everything from bonuses Commission basic salary and allowances. It will average around Thirty to fifty thousand pesos a month.They do sales, they have like really good commission as well.

Air Asia Philippines

When it comes to Air Asia Philippines, I know it will range about, I am told that it is a big basic salary. It has a lot of perks. you can get that loan for a car. Just a reminder, Big basic salary means you also have big taxes. It will average about minimum thirty to sixty Thousand pesos a month and also depending on your seniority. The people that I know that work there was very senior. I think that’s why the salary is kinda big for them and when you are based on Malaysia, the salary is also different. It will range about minimum thirty to sixty thousand pesos a month.

That’s the Airlines that I know of here in the Philippines. I don’t know about the other ones like the jet star and like the other airlines that are small because I don’t know people who are working there.

So that’s it, That’s the Flight attendant Salary range discussion. I hope you guys learned something.

Disclaimer: Don’t quote me on this because this is all just the things that I’ve learned through my friends. This is not from the company itself, and I didn’t take any liabilities from this information Thank you.

Flight Attendant Salary Talk Series # 1

Hey guys, it’s miss Kaykrizz and welcome back to my Blog! In this series. We’re going to talk about Money! That’s right, Flight Attendant Salary.

Flight Attendant Salary

In the first part of the series we’re going to talk about how do flight attendants gets paid.

How do a Flight Attendant gets paid?

So there are three ways that flight attendants get paid. That’s why it’s kind of very tricky when you ask somebody how much is their salary if they are a flight attendant? And it’s kind of hard to explain.

Flight Attendant’s basic Salary

first the way that the flight attendant gets paid is the basic salary. This is what you will hear sometimes. They will say that your salary is 15,000 pesos but that is just the basic. that’s really a thing in the Philippines that the salary is really low so that the tax will be low as well. That’s the basic salary whether you fly or not as long as you’re employed you get the basic salary

Flight Attendant’s Flying Time

The second way that the flight attendant gets paid is through flying time or flying  hours. The first 50 hours averages around 100 pesos here. In abroad it’s the same and if you get past 50 hours that’s it, the rate will change. Some companies will pay you 400 pesos, some companies they pay you 200 pesos on your 51st to 80th hour. Then on the 80th above that’s it you will get 500 per hour or something like that. It depends on each company and each company policy so it’s all different.

Flight Attendant’s Allowances

The third way that the flight attendant gets paid is through their paradigm or parlay over allowances. When you stay at one place and you stay there overnight you’ll get paid for the whole whole night you stayed there. There are also different ways that companies pay this it’s either it comes in your paycheck or they will give it to you outright while you are in the area. Some companies will give the allowance to you directly in the currency of which Country you are staying at. Aside from this there are also the different Allowances or perks that you get depending on the company. I remember that perfect attendance perfect attendance bonus. Sometimes you get rice allowance depending on how the companies package for their flight attendant.

To summarize you know you will get your basic allowance, you’re flying pay and also your paradigm and Additional allowances and bonuses. That’s how flight attendants gets paid on their job.

So that’s it guys! So that’s how flight attendants get payed. I hope you guys learned something on this blog.

Why do you want to be a Flight Attendant?

Why do you want to be a flight attendant?

Hey guys it’s miss Kaykrizz and welcome back to my advice blog! If you are looking for interview tips for flight attendant interview question then this is just right for you. Today we are gonna answer the question “Why do you want to be a flight attendant?”.

why do you want to be a flight attendant?

Why do you want to be a Flight Attendant?

It seems like a pretty easy question, but it’s really hard to think of an answer that will please the interviewer. The proper way to answer this question is to be professional about it. We all have our own reasons why we do things why we aspire for things and why do we want things. A job interview is not the time and place where you will tell your most deepest secret and deepest desires and hopes of your heart to the recruiter. This is a place of business and this is where they need to know your motivations why you are applying to their company. It is one of those things that they frequently ask and it is one of the things that most of you are discombobulated or confused on how to answer it. That classic “I want to be a flight attendant because I want to travel the world” and you know go on tours for free, it’s totally out of the window forget about that. A lot of people already answer it that way, so don’t answer that way. Please don’t answer that that overused line. That’s not gonna work.

What you need to do is you need to look at this as a transaction. This is a business transaction, you are there offering your service. They are there trying to see if you are a good fit. That is how you should look at it and how should you answer it is you should think in your mind why they are asking me this question. The reason that they’re asking you this Question is they want to know if you have any idea of what the flight Attendant is. Make sure that on your answer you incorporate that that you know what the flight attendant does. They don’t just travel the world, they don’t just take selfies on the Eiffel tower. Make sure that you do more research on what a flight attendant does. You focus on what you can bring to that table, what can you give them, what can you offer them, Not what you can take from them.

 

The answer

So now let’s answer this question. This is what you guys have been waiting for.

I always wanted to be a flight attendant ever Since my first experience of flight as a Kid. I remember my first flight and it has made such an impression for me that I have always aspired to become part of the flight attendant team. Even though I very much enjoy my current job, I am now looking for a job that is hands-on, challenging, spontaneous and something that will help me grow as an individual.

I really think that I have the qualities that is needed in the role of a flight attendant. I really love working with people. If you will let me choose with working in front of a computer or working with people, I will definitely work with people. I love it when everyone is working towards the same goal and achieving the same thing and afterwards celebrating Together as well. Aside from that I understand and I know that the excellent service is the bread and butter of the airline industry. Every airline out there can offer the same thing maybe at a lower price, but if you offer them the best service that would make an impression with them just Like it did when I was a child. They will always come back and be loyal to your airline and I am very much ready to become a part of that team that would make that happen, To make that excellent service happen for your company. Give it a chance I am here and I’m ready take on the challenge of being a flight attendant crew. Thank you so much.

That is my take on how I will answer the question Why do you want to be a flight attendant. There’s no perfect way to answer the question. This is only a guide to help you construct your own answer to that question.

So that’s it guys, I hope you learned something from my answer. I hope you guys pass the test to get that dream job of being a flight attendant.

Buntis Haul: First trimester of Being Pregnant

Hey guys Misskaykrizz here, I am pregnant, so today I’m going to give you a pregnancy Haul or what I bought when I found out that I was pregnant and the things that has been Able to help me out in my first and second trimester of pregnancy.

If you are pregnant and you’re interested in this kind of blog, welcome to this Buntis Haul and let’s get on right into it!

maxresdefault (1)

1st Trimester of being Pregnant

Hey guys, we found out that I was pregnant while we were in Germany. we were on our vacation there and that actually made like 50 percent of the decision why I wanted to quit my job, because I really wanted to be there for the baby. I never had a mother so I always thought to myself if I become a mother I’m gonna be there 100% and that’s what I did so anyways let’s get all the things that I bought the moment that I found out that I was pregnant.

I know I have to get a vitamins, Pre-natal vitamins or something like that or Pregnancy vitamins. It’s kind of hard to find it there but I found this medicine this is a folic acid medicine. It’s a Milligrams Folic Acid with Vitamin B3 and B12 and I don’t know. but this is in German, He actually bought this with me. It is something that you drink once a day. It’s a folic acid It’s really good for the baby the developing fetus. It’s the very first thing that I bought and then I started having this pimples and break ups all over the place I guess that’s just part of the pregnancy. I’m so afraid to use medicines that will affect the baby, so I researched online on what to use on your pimples when you’re pregnant and I learned that I can use a Tea tree cream Because it’s organic. It’s natural, I can use it to dry out my pimples. I’ve been using this ever since. I found this really efficient on removing my pimple or zits, and you can’t really control your hormone.

Another problem i have in my pregnancy is morning sickness. I have morning sickness when ate my food in the morning, Good thing I read somewhere that eating familiar foods will make your morning sickness gone. Another thing, they told me that you should not get hungry, cause it will make you nauseous. They bought me sky flakes crackers because this actually helps out with the morning sickness. I guess I did a lot of research about morning sickness as well It happens a lot when you’re hungry, or you didn’t feed yourself well. Every two hours I kind of like will eat this with a tea or With something hot hot cocoa and it really calms my tummy And it really calms the nausea and the morning sickness in general. I have different variants of the crackers. But I just really like the bread sky flakes. I really made it difficult for John and John’s family because I only eat the ones that I’m familiar with. They really need to look for a Filipino food in a foreign country.

I also learned that dates are very good for you, so I bought some dates while I was there.  These dates are actually food that people in the middle east eat when they are crossing the desert. they can survive on this for days and this is actually very healthy for you and the baby. It is actually natural sugar and you can a smoothies out of it. If you are pregnant You need to eat lots of dates because you need to have a lot of sugar. if you’re craving for sugar instead of going for an ice cream, Go for dates. So I really like these dates that we had and the number one problem that I had was Yeah, like the the nausea the morning sickness in tagalog *Pag susuka, Nahiilo*.

Theres another food that cures my morning sickness, it’s ginger Candies. so john bought a lot of ginger candies, I guess I finished like three packs of this, so whenever I feel queasy or *Nihihilo, Nasusuka* or not feeling well in general, I would snack on this little candies right here. It’s ginger flavored, and it’s sometimes it’s mixed with orange or lemon and it’s really good so this really helped me a lot.

So john’s sister loves tea so do I so she recommended different types of tea for me. She gave me tea that doesn’t have caffeine and so she had picked everything and she brought it back for me. She shipped it to us she she actually have it back for us, so I have lots and lots of tea. So some of this tea are Classic Chai-tea. just make sure that the tea doesn’t have caffeine because it’s not good for you if you’re pregnant. So I have this classic chai-tea, Chamomile tea for you to help you to sleep and organic Red bush. It’s all organic and everything without caffeine. Usually if we talk about tea we talk about black tea the yellow label and that has the most caffeine in all kinds of teas. If you are reading this Janice Thank you so much for your gifts, it really helps me when I am sick. I would sometimes drink tea and sky flakes and have some ginger Candy. That’s my formula to combat morning sickness. My favorite is the peppermint tea, it helps my tummy feel good when i feel so bloated.

Let’s move on to the things that I got as a gift from John’s family. They are so sweet when we were going back to the Philippines, they they gave us things that are hard to find or expensive here in the Philippines. He gave us this baby monitor, this is called Angel care, so this baby monitor It has something that you put on the bed and it monitors the breathing of the baby so you would know that the baby is breathing sometimes when the baby just stopped breathing cause of Apnea or something like that. And also, it monitors the sound and everything else. I’m not really techie, but yeah this is really good and nice and we can’t find the same thing here in the Philippines. If you are reading this daddy Jo thank you for this gift so this is actually a 160 Euros. Just look for the rate of how much it is in peso. it’s really expensive and so I’m hoping that I could use this with This baby and more of your babies that are coming So this is a gift from John’s Dad.

This is a gift from John’s sister, this is a baby carrier cloth. I can’t wait to use this when the baby is out. Thank you Janice! and I really love the color. We have the same color choices. I really like this Neutral and smooth color.

I also want something for the tummy. I started putting oils and creams on a tummy as soon as I know I was pregnant. I don’t want to have stretch marks. So this is what I use the first image is the tummy butter by followers. It’s really nice, it’s really smells good. I realized later on that you only use this after pregnancy. So I switch back to my original plan which is bio oil. Bio oil is actually one of the holy grail products out there. It is used by flight attendants for stretch marks and Scars Acne Scars and they use this as a moisturizer That’s why I’ve been familiar with this before. Bio oil is something that I have hoarded ever since because during winter times. I would use it as a moisturizer at night and it really plumps my skin back because it’s really dry. I got the cheapest one you can buy this from India. I bought lots of bio oil, and yeah, I start on it. I’m so shocked how expensive it is in the Philippines. This is actually $4.99 at Watsons for a small bottle but yeah, I just bought one because I I really felt that my skin is stretching out. So this really helps me feel like I’m prepping my skin for all the work that it’s going to go through. I use it twice a day in the morning and at night. Hopefully that i wont get so many stretch marks.

So guys thanks for reading this blog, i hope you guys learned something about being pregnant and the stuff that I bought for my pregnancy!

Qatar Airways Make-Up Tutorial!

 

 

So we are starting off with this flawless face foundation Primer by Absolute New York.

Screenshot_1

I like this one because it is paraffin free It’s all organic.

Primer Is very important to make your make-up last very long, that’s why I use a Primer  And next we are gonna use this fit me! concealer by Maybelline.

Screenshot_2

I’m in the shade 20. I like using this concealer cause the coverage is good and also it is very light and it doesn’t crease that much. I like using a damp sponge to blend it all in and  That is all actually you can also use this for everyday. Since we are going to a recruitment, we’re gonna use another fit me! foundation.

Screenshot_3

 

I’m using a foundation brush for this one because of its great finish of the brush if you use a foundation brush, it’s like an airbrush finished Here I’m using the Coty airspun and in the shade Translucent to bake our face so baking is a new technique that is used here in the make-up Community this will give you that “Walang gulas Look” it give you a very flawless look. Also it helps sets in the foundation and the concealer.

Screenshot_4

 

It helps sets in in your scheme, so usually people dig under their eyes only  But I like to take my whole face so that my make-up will last longer and now we are going for the eyebrows I’m using this designing eyebrow pencil from face shop.

Screenshot_5

 

I’m in the shade great brown and this is a technique I learned from the make-up class that we created so you should start to the side of your nose.

Screenshot_7

I’m measuring that the highest point that is from the side of your nose to your pupil and then measure as well the ending which is the side of your nose to your side of your eyes and then where the side of pencil should be the ending of this spot  So I’m just drawing my eyes are my eyebrows right now.

 

I want to fill them up with Anastasia dip brow pomade.

Screenshot_8

because the finish of Anastasia is so much natural for me. But if you don’t have much budget yet going for a pencil on this step will surely suffice. I just like using this one because I really like the Anastasia dip brow and to finish my eyebrows routine.

I’m using the Gimme brows by Benefit for the Finishing touches.

Screenshot_1

It’s a gel report and then now we are using a concealer to give our eyebrows a clean look. This is very important this helps your eyebrows stand out on your face. Because the area around it is clean. Now I’m just using this concealer brush to blend all the concealer in my face. It will not be obvious that you put a concealer just blend it all in And now let’s go for

Screenshot_2

the eye make-up  So I like using this Maybeline blushed nudes eye shadow palette for my base. I like to use the shimmery white one just a basic eye make-up for this because I would like to emphasize this make-up look on the lips.

so I just want to have a basic eyes shadow look and Then on the outer crease I’d like to use this brown eye shadow from Kiko.

Screenshot_4

I put it this way cause this complements my chinky or chinita eyes So I just like putting it outside there because this make-up is highly pigmented. Then I’ll just blend it all out so I’m gonna use this shimmery white again shadow for the under the eyebrows.

Screenshot_5

and now to accent on my eye make-up I’d like to use this pink shimmery eye shadow with a wet brush.

Screenshot_6

This will give my look That very shimmery Look, but not overdone. so on my waterline I’d like to use a smaller brush. Eye brush so that I put a water under my eyes I’m using the pink shimmery shade for this.

Now let’s go on for the eyeliner, so this one is from Lakme.

Screenshot_7

and I really like to use the black eyeliner especially for Middle Eastern Airlines that I am applying for. Going with a liquid eyeliner as well because this is very important, This is the Arabic style make-up. You have to make sure that you do this on your make-up because it it really defines your eyes. Arabic recruiters really likes this type make-up because this is basically what you’re going to do on your Work as a flight attendant.

 

Let’s move on to the contour highlight and brush. Right now I’m just taking off our baking and just finishing it.  So I’m using the Douglass contouring palette and I’m using the light brown shade over my hairline.

Screenshot_9

So that I don’t look like a ghost, so that my make-up blends out. I’d like to use this Contouring shade on the side of my cheeks after I finished my hairline I’m Also using this I’m contouring brush. it’s very effective. I also put the Contour shade on the side of my cheek just to give it a little bit definition And this is what it looks like.

Screenshot_10

and now we’re using this Mac powder blush in the shade thing Just to cover all of our cheekbones.

Screenshot_11

To also blend it out to the continuing make-up that we used earlier. So I like to do my face like this, So my cheekbones standout and then when it looks like it standout I will cover that area and also try to smile To put some blush also on the apples of my cheeks.

Screenshot_12

So this is my ELF baked highlighter I like using this ever since I’ve discovered and then using this highlighter brush pan brush so put it on the apples of my cheeks and  Also on the sides. It’s important to put it on the sides so that your make-up is three-dimensional it’s not just on the front Okay, so this is a really nice technique I learned. and also put a highlight on your nose bridge on your Forehead Chin’s and your Cupid’s bow.

Screenshot_13

Now let’s do our nose line So nose line is life. Especially if you’re Filipino, and I’m just using the shade naked from the Naked palette Urban Decay Naked palette So I like putting it from the end of my eyebrows the beginning of my girls to the tip of my nose.

Screenshot_14

About my eye lashes so I’m just curling it with my Shu uemura eyelash curler.

Screenshot_15

You could definitely use falsies if you want to or false false lashes but I don’t recommend it because it’s not allowed if you are already working as a flight attendant. I just curl my lashes and use this Maybelline falsies mascara.

Screenshot_16

To hopefully make that falsies its effect. I like using most of the product on the lower part of the Eyelashes so it will not fall down. when it is too heavy it might fall down I’m giving them a charge on her a flip through her lashes more So I also like using the product on my under lashes, so it gives my eyes a very Defined blue or awake look so there’s mascara on top and bottom.

Screenshot_17

If there are errors i usually use cotton buds to clean i up  For the lips I’d like to start with a lip liner. I’m using kiko comfort lip liner.

Screenshot_18

This is very nice and very creamy and I use it to line the outer you can go just to put an outline on my lips and as well as Put a lip liner all over the lips as this is a great  Technique to make sure that your lipstick last so much longer Than it would ordinarily will.

And For our lipstick, I’m using Sephora in the shade mu.

Screenshot_19

This is a really nice color it reminds me of the Qatar Airways Uniform that’s why I like it and that’s why I chose it for this makeup look So I have a 3d effect I’d like to use the white shimmery eyeshadow in the middle part of the lips to make it more defined or 3D. if you have a makeup setting spray you are done. And this is the final look!

Screenshot_20

One last tip if you are going to apply for the Qatar Airways open the interviews is that  Forget about your competition! You are there on a mission make sure that you focus on yourself. Focus on your preparation be aware and be present.

Qatar Airways Cabin Crew Final Interview Day 3

If you are going to have your Final interview with Qatar Airways i would Just like to say Congratulations and This blog is for you!

Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways Cabin Crew Final Interview

You made It through The first day and the second day of The Qatar Airways Assessment Days I am so proud of you! You deserve it! Give yourself a Little pat in the back! Just a Few more Steps and you will be on your way to traveling the world with the five star Airline!

So you are probably wondering how do You nail the final interview of the Qatar Airways  Final interview Assessment..

I’m speaking from experience, I tried Applying for this Position  for more Than eight Times. I Actually Just Remember The eight Times but I think I applied more than that. I was Able to get the job at the last time that i applied.

All those learning and and  experiences i was able to take note of my mistakes and what works for me and what didn’t work. Because Qatar Airways is notorious for not telling you What you did wrong for the final interview.

  Expectations

Expect that they will be on time for your schedule because during that, You’ll be able to select your slot on what time you want to be interviewed. Sometimes when the person ahead of you is late or not present, they Will move you up next. You will be earlier than Your schedule. Expect that you might be called earlier than your scheduled time.

Expect that they will probably Spend about 30 minutes talking to you one-on-one. That’s the average time that they take for each and every final interview. After the interview they will tell You that they will contact you by email in around two weeks but that never Really happens. Sometimes it’s earlier sometimes it’s Longer. Indeed it is a waiting game.

Let’s move on to my tips for you!

 

#1

Make sure that you do your Makeup in broad Daylight. During the one-on-one interview with you, they will open the curtains in the hotel. In all of those times I was given the chance to do the final interview. Sometimes we do our makeup really thick for the yellow lights of the hotel that’s understandable For the first and second day, but during the third day or the Final day, make your makeup  daylight Friendly. Make sure that it is all nice and  pleasant for the daytime or the White lights.

#2

Prepare for behavioral questions. They will not ask you basic questions like why do you want to be a flight attendant or the basic things that you would expect, what is your strength and weaknesses. Qatar Airways are very particular in this one they really try to find good fit for their company because they are a picky company. They will try to find out what your character is.

Example of a behavioral question is like tell the interviewers something that you have overcome in your life so far.

S-T-A-R Method!

I have this STAR method. I use this Star method to structure my answer in a way that interviewers will like my answer.

The “S”stands for Situation.

The”T” stands for the task.

The “A” stands for the actions taken.

The “R” stands for the resolution or the results.

For example the interviewer asks; Tell us of your biggest obstacle that you have overcome in your life.  Start with an overview of a situation perhaps the biggest obstacle that I have to deal within my life is when my parents died. That’s a brief summary of the situation, The task is that I have to be there to be the rock of the family as being the firstborn child and  Also I was Dealing With my own Sadness and Depression, Actions taken, I tried to be strong for my remaining siblings and the rest of my family, but I talked to my friends and I have seek their support in this difficult time. resolution, You can say that in the end everything was okay in the end I was able to pull through the depression I wasn’t that bad I was able to find solace in prayer and find strength and knowing that life will always get better in the end. Or; There is nowhere else to go when you reach the bottom but to the top.In that way, you don’t get lost by how you answer this vague and difficult question.

The tendency when you are answering behavioral questions you might get carried away. You guys may forget to do the basics when doing the behavioral interview. Always keep your answers as well in a nice flow. Apply all the rules of basic “Interview 101” like keep your hands on your lap, Sit properly, wear your smile and lastly eye contact. I really think that the star method is something that you should really work on, because that will be your bread and butter in this final interview.

 

And that’s it guys! This is the Qatar Airways Cabin Crew Assessment Day 3!
Don’t worry guys, there will be more stuff coming from this series.
To those who didn’t get into the day 3 of the Assessment, no worries! There will be next time, I will help you guys in your application and I know you guys will come back and get your dream job.
