How to be a Flight Attendant: The biggest mistake I made

 

In my 8 years of application for FA, it’s been years of trial and error. There were years that I would apply twice or thrice a year. I was 23 years old when I was hired as a local FA and 27 years old as international FA. Beforehand, there were no blogs nor vlogs to help me to prepare. Thou there were a few friends that would share their experience but as part of that airline contract, they would only give me minimal information. It’s been really hard work that helped me reach my goal as FA.

Based on my experiences, the biggest mistake I made is that I’m not fully prepared of what’s gonna happen. As a beginner, I just try my luck and the main focus of my preparation for interview is to find that perfect look, outfit, and shoes. Most of my time is being consumed to be on my best physical self - well groomed and looked sharp. I only practiced my answers a day before the interview and review those notes during my commute travel time. On the day of the interview, I feel  really stressed. Your looks is just preliminary stage. There were tests about English and Math. There are also observers whose been watching you the moment you enter the airline, of which assess your behavior on how you react and interact with other people. I’m not poised at all but a nervous wreck.

Here are the tips to share based on my experiences:

  1. Don’t waste your time on your appearance, settle it early on.
  2. Research the airline - history, background, CEO, culture, values, tag line, future plans, and the like.
  3. Be knowledgeable enough about the roles of FA based on job description/ post.
  4. Prepare real answers by practicing and forming your ideas. Deliver it with feelings, with poise, with effect, and smile. Please also mind your gestures and emotions in expressing your answers.
  5. Check your emotions and fears of what FA job is. Prepare yourself for a career transition.
  6. Praise your vibrations. Maintaining a high level of energy and be a happy person.

Indeed, applying for FA job is not only about make-up, clothes, and the like. Yes it is part but mind the other aspects such as FA roles and the airline company. Your preparation should incorporate your whole self - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. And it doesn’t happen overnight.
