  1. Mindset

“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you are right.” - Henry Ford

Our mind is a powerful tool and we should use it to our advantage.

You need to have that winners mindset. How? Winners simple don’t loose because when they loose, they think they have done something wrong. Think of that you are one step away from winning. If you didn’t get the job as the flight attendant on your first try, you have to learn the lesson and adjust your strategy the next time. This is the winners thing.

Half of the battles are won in our minds. It’s always a mind game in life. Mind over matter. If you think that you will be a flight attendant, then it’ll happen.

To sell something, you have to be sold first. You cannot sell something you don’t believe in. When you know a bad product, then you will not recommend it to your friends. Therefore, you have to believe in yourself to sell yourself. Convince yourself that your are capable to be a flight attendant and claim it.

Self confidence is simply being sure. Being sure of who you are, what you are capable of and what your worth is.

  1. Knowledge

Know your type of monster to be best able to slay it. -kaykrizz (Click to tweet) - If you have water type monsters then take it out of the water. With that, you’ll able to know your weaknesses and areas to attack. Just like in applying as the flight attendant: What it is that I’m getting into? To position myself and sell.

What the position is all about and what is required to fulfill that role. By knowing these things, you can demonstrate, show, and prove to the recruiters that you this knowledge and qualities of being the flight attendant.

Airline specific information. It’s not just about role of the flight attendant and what they do, you also have interest in what kind of airline they are.

Know the history and CEO’s name. These have been the trickest questions I experienced like in Qatar Airways, and most applicants has been caught offhanded on these questions. Because if you don’t know the CEO’s name, you will not be invited on the next stage. Recruiters have the power to pick those who have knowledge of their company.

Also, its important to know the tag line. In Qatar Airways - World’s five star airline. In PAL - your home in the sky. By knowing it, you are telling the recruiters that you are genuinely interested in their airline brand and you want to be part of it.

Mind to know the number of FLEET and destinations. In Saudi, they’ll ask - What do you know about Saudia? Where are their flight destinations? These are some default questions that agencies can ask you.

Name of frequent flyer program. In PAL, it’s Mabuhay Miles. In Oman Air, its Sindbad Program. It’s important to know this because you put yourself a step higher to other applicants.

The image of the airline and what their brand represents. So if you are applying for local airlines, the image is casual- adventure, have fun, and be free; fly wherever you are. Make sure to portray these kind of images and qualities to be in line to what the airline is trying to project to customers. Then, if you are applying for traditional airlines like PAL - they are the flag carrier, so make sure you have tidier hair and none sticks out because they are very formal and classy as they want to be the professional and reliable airline. So, when one apply in AirAsia and she’s upright or one apply in PAL when his casual type, then of them are not good fit.

  1. Interview Skills

English language. Local and international airlines requires having able to speak and communicate in English but not the best accent or diction just like Miriam Santiago. It’s just that you have to understand and express yourself clearly, to further avoid miscommunication  to anyone in the airline because it’s a  big no-no. They might also give you tests or exams, talk to you making sure you can make a conversation.

Non-verbal communication skills. Do you 80% of the result of your interview is not about what you say? It’s how you say and the body language you have shown during the whole recruitment time you are there. It comprises your eye contact, smile, posture, listening gestures, and listening skills.

 

Overall, to ensure a successful flight attendant interview - you must able to have your mindset be on the right attitude and perspective,  you have the knowledge about the airline company and the role of a flight attendant, and you have the interview skills through proper communication and be able to sell yourself.
