Years ago I asked my self the same question over and over again, “What am I doing wrong in my application?” I have been pursuing this dream of becoming a flight attendant and I am getting really tired of not getting any results.
A few weeks before I will obsess about what I am going to wear, buy new sets of make up products and shoes, getting my answers ready but still to no avail I did not get the job. I wanted to give up.
Until I had an epiphany, perhaps Im preparing for the interview in the wrong way. Im focusing on the totally wrong side of the preparation. I searched for forums and learned from the experiences of others.
There are core differences and technical differences between average and above-average applicants. I read somewhere that “If you want to stand out, don’t be afraid to do something different.”
One of the things I learned early on to become an above-average flight attendant candidate is you must have a plan.
Most people think that being a flight attendant is all about good looks, posture and answering every question right. Some realize they know little about this mysterious subject of cabin crew open days, so they invest in a tourism degree or even a flight attendant school they hope knows more than they do.
My plan hasn’t really changed, yet in many ways, it has changed dramatically. Through many of the mistakes, the learning experiences, the wins and the losses, I have grown up and gained knowledge and wisdom along the way. My plan is constantly under revision but what I ultimately want for my life has not changed. I want to realize my dream to be an international flight attendant.️
When you’re thinking about your plan for your flight attendant career, here are five pieces of advice:
- Take your time.
- Ask yourself, “What do I want for my life?”
- Until you determine your goals, don’t ask or solicit input from anyone else – most will only be negative.
- Find a mentor – someone who’s done it before.
- If you’re going to do it, do it. Don’t just talk about it.
All you have to do is know what you want, have a plan, and stick to it. In other words, all it takes is a little discipline.
