How to have an IMPACT on your Impact Interview?

How to make an impact on your impact interview?

If you are reading this now, you’re probably trying to understand or try to find out how to make an impact on your impact interview.

 How to have an IMPACT on your Impact Interview? Flight Attendant | MISSKAYKRIZZ

Now I want to share with you what I think an impact interview is.

What is an impact interview? An impact interview is trying to gauge your first impression when they (recruiters) first see you. What would be a stranger thinking about you. The job of a flight attendant is usually dealing with a lot of passengers that should show a positive image about the company. That is what I think an impact interview is all about. It’s evaluating how you come off right off the bat.

 

Here are the tricks that I could give you guys to make sure that you give your best impact on your impact interview.

1. Make sure that your posture is correct. When you enter the room, you should have a straight body posture as your chest out and your stomach in. This immediately gives you that look of confidence in you.

2. Maintain eye contact or seek eye contact right away. That means if you are somebody who is confident and who is sincere. That’s what eye contact conveys. If you are even just meeting the person for the first time, you need to establish eye contact.

3. Smile this is the magic sauce to everything. The moment you enter the room, smile like it’s your wedding day. Have the right eye contact and posture immediately even without talking. Give off a very nice and positive vibe.

4. Grace under pressure. This is keeping your hand gestures controlled. Your head movements, stuttering or those that are involuntary actions that happens whenever you are nervous. Make sure that you are on top of it. Try to have it as controlled as possible. Example of this is when talking some time, some of us talk a bit faster when nervous. Make sure that you are in control of yourself during the interview. Talk in a paced manner, control any gestures or involuntary movements that you have.

5. Be prepared. Prepare your answers. This is not cheating guys, this is preparation. This is the way to really send your message out there. If somebody asks you a question and you’re not prepared for an answer, you will be saying things right off your head and it might not look or sound as nice or as polished as someone who has already thought of the question and an answer to it. This is a trick that most beauty pageants contestant do. I suggest you guys also prepare it that way. They prepare the answers ahead of time. They anticipate what kind of questions they’re going to have. In your case probably like, “Tell me about yourself?, Why do you want to apply for us?, Why do you want to be a Cabin crew?, What do you know about our company?” Those are the questions to prepare for. When it comes to beauty pageants, they think about the questions that are usually asked of them. Like what if your essence is a woman?, What will you do during your reign?, or Why should we give you the crown? They have these answers prepared and then they practice delivering it in a very sincere and spontaneous manner. Have your pre-prepared answers polished, lined up and set in a way that is clear simple and with an impact.

When you do encounter these questions, you already know what to answer. You already had a plan in your head on how to get it out of you. It’s just a matter of how you deliver the answer with the right pause with a smile and the right attitude.

6. Positive vibe. Your energy when you enter should light up the whole room. That is the kind of energy that you should have when you are going for an impact interview. This is what the recruiters would say the x-factor. This is what we are looking for in people. How do you do that? Just apply all the steps I’ve previously have said. Enter the room with a big smile with a good posture, eye contact, prepared answers and aside from that, you also need to feel good. How do you do that? Make sure that you have listened to inspiring music or you have really visualized yourself as a cabin crew. Anything that would make you in a good mood. When you enter the room in a good mood, immediately everybody will sense your appearance and they’ve got a good feeling about you.

Those are my tips for you guys who are going to have your impact interview soon. I really wish you all the best and good luck! If you guys want to know more you could book me on Skype for a Skype Coaching. I do all coaching and one-on-one coaching like this but it’s going to be customised to your own needs. It’s just like me meeting you where you are. I’ll figure out how I could coach you the best or what needs improvement.

Get a copy of my book “Ready for Takeoff: 8 Proven Steps to get Your Dream as a Flight Attendant” This is actually my own cheat sheet when I was still trying to get the job as a flight attendant. It took me 8 years to go figure it out and now it’s written here in the book so if you’re interested in that, pre-order it now!

Advice for Male Cabin Crew Applicants

male cabin crew applicant

This is made for those who requested for my advice for male cabin crew applicants. If you’re a male cabin crew applicant and you want to know my advice, check it out here!

You might have seen on my Facebook page a long time ago, I have created a live video wherein I asked you guys what are your questions for male cabin crew applicants. I found a male YouTuber who is a cabin crew and I actually asked him to do a video. I felt like I wasn’t the right person to give you advice but that person that I have requested to make a video became so busy and unfortunately we’re not able to push through with the video.

Now I have all these questions from you guys and I don’t know what to do and how to answer them. Now I just created a video to answer all of your questions and I will answer them the best way I can look through the eyes of a recruiter. With my experience, with my friend’s experience who are males who also helped out get the job as a Flight attendant for Air Asia, PAL Express, and PAL. Most of my friends actually got in as well. I guess now I have reconsidered my evaluation of myself. I think I’m now qualified to give you advice if you’re a male and you’re cabin crew aspirant.

 

Let’s go through the comments

Here are the comments on Facebook from those of you guys who have been following me and I’m going to try to answer those questions!

 

1st Question…

“Hi misskay, I have been following you from a long time on YouTube and really thank you for all information. I really applied for Qatar 5x, but got rejected from open days. I can speak and write Arabic and fluent in English and some languages. I have been trained in cabin crew as I’m really confident to answer any question about CC. Please, I hope that you would advise for any special tips in the interview. Thank you!”

– Godfry Edrain

Godfry Edrian, my tip for you is to know what Qatar Airways wants and to really give it to them. I always say know your monsters to be able to slay it. You need to slay Qatar Airways. If you have been watching my videos especially the one about Qatar Airways application, most of them is directed or I was actually pertaining to female applicants. Because in the Philippines, they hire girls most of the time.

If you would see through my advice for the female applicants, it also applies to the male cabin crew applicant. The posture, eye contact, smile. It’s not only for the females, but you also have to do those. Qatar Airways is more on how you feel to them. That is why it is three days for them to decide that they want you in. You have to show them that you know about teamwork, you are a positive person, and you’re always portraying grace under pressure and you also are prepared. Preparation is the key. You said you speak different languages. When you sell yourself, sell yourself with a smile. Don’t give that air of “Okay I have this skill, I know that, I should be in” and you don’t smile! It’s like a little bit coming off as arrogant if you ask me. Try to avoid being arrogant as much as possible. That is the big NO-NO for the recruiters. They don’t want to hire arrogant people. They’re looking for humble people because your job is a humble job. It is a service job. Reality check!

It’s a service job with a lot of benefits of course. They’re looking for essentially humble people. People who can work with different people and different personalities. You show that through the interview or even if they’re not talking to you, they’re actually observing you. That is the thing with Qatar Airlines and most airlines as well. If you show them that you talk to your seatmates, you try to introduce yourself even if it’s not your turn and try to help one another. It’s a big thing that they see. Also, don’t yawn when they are doing the presentation. Don’t look tired and sleepy. I wasn’t there on your interview day so I wouldn’t be really able to pinpoint what it is that you need to improve just a little bit more of an idea when it comes to Qatar Airways.

 

2nd Question…

“How to apply for PAL? Is it a plus factor if you know how to speak Arabic?”

– John Keivehn Samonte

John, you just have to go for their open day to apply. You have to portray their image. What is their image? PAL is a conservative company. They don’t want an ‘anime like’ hair style. That’s what I remember for the guys’ coz I have a friend who applied together with me before and they specifically asked those people with an anime hairstyle to have a haircut. You need to have a clean haircut, clean shave. You need to look like PAL cabin crew. What does PAL represent to you? It’s the flag carrier. If it’s possible for you to wear Barong, wear Barong, (No I’m kidding.) You need to wear Americana/suit or at least if not a suit, a long-sleeved shirt. You need to look fresh and look like you smell good. All of the other tips for passing the interviews applies to you guys even if you’re a male, it still applies to you. The eye contact, smile, posture and how to prepare the answer for the interview.

The only difference perhaps is the way you walk. When they asked you to walk, you don’t walk with your hips swaying. For male cabin crew applicant, you walk with your shoulders moving and your hips stay the same. Only girls move with their hips. Try to move naturally but try to be manlier about it. Manly and natural not too much exaggeration. As long as it looks natural, it looks nice, you’re in!

 

3rd Question…

“Hi! Is it needed to have 20/20 visual acuity to get hired in PAL?”

– Jarkyll Neverca Aclan

Yes, with or without glasses. They will not check that on the interview, but they will check it on the medical. Pass the interview first, during the medical you need to have your glasses on. With your glasses, your test result should be 20/20 vision. That’s what you really need, corrected glasses.

 

4th Question…

“Hi Dear, I’m Emdadul, I live in Qatar for 3 years, I worked in a Hotel, but I like to work as a cabin crew. It’s my dream, I applied so many times but I don’t receive anything, please can you give me some advice, please.”

– Emdadul Haque Riyadh

I guess, what is being asked is broad. If you tried before and you didn’t get in, you have to look into yourself what needs correction. Only you can answer that. Only you were present during those times. If you need to work on your confidence, work on your confidence. If you need to work on your preparation, work on your preparation. If you need to work on your energy, especially Qatar. They are very specific about this. Your energy, your vibe. How do you come up to them? You need to work on that. See for yourself where do you think in this aspect you lack. If you were able to pass the initial screening, like the height test, impact, you’re good! You just need a little more polishing.

 

That’s all the questions that we have on Facebook. I might do a Part Two Tips for male cabin crew applicant.

How to gain confidence for your flight attendant interview.

maxresdefault

Concrete steps on how to improve your confidence

Paano maging confident para sa iyong cabin crew/flight attendant interview?

Your wait is done! This is all about my tip for gaining self-confidence. For all of you have been asking me this question, this is for you!

ellen
A screenshot from Ellaventure on Twitter

How to boost your self-confidence?

  1. Know what is self-confidence.

It’s the way somebody talks or the way somebody walks or things like these. You are not wrong. This is right but the true meaning of self-confidence is being certain about something that means being confident just basically means BEING SURE. Being sure of yourself what you represent, what your values and what can you give on the table. It’s important that you understand that and integrate that to your psychology or the way that you think. This will really reflect in everything that you do.

 

  1. Be the right kind of confident.

There are different types of confident people, some people you may say not really the definition of confidence but is easily related to those cocky people, very arrogant people. In the Philippines, we call them signal number three. This is not the kind of confidence you need to be on your interview. You have to be the kind of confident. That is what they call quiet confidence. You’re not quiet but your confidence or the way you carry yourself speaks for yourself. That means you don’t have to speak or brag about things or talk about things that are not on the topic and you just want to mention it just to say or just to show that you are superior. Don’t ever be arrogant. Stay humble and be sure about yourself.

One example of this is…”Yes, I graduated as valedictorian in school.” This is not being arrogant. If the question is there about: What are your achievements? You can say it that way. Just another way to say arrogantly would be this “I graduated with the highest honors in our College, class of a thousand students!” It’s the way how you say it. If you have an attitude in the way you are saying or explaining things, that will come off as arrogant. You just have to say things as they are in a plain English Way.

 

  1. Prepare

You have to prepare because on the day. If your clothes are not ironed yet or you don’t know what you are going to wear. You don’t have your makeup ready, you still have to buy some more makeup on that day, and it’s going to be too stressful for you. It’s not going to look good. That also includes researching about the company and knowing what to answer to basic questions like: “Describe yourself, Sell yourself to me, what is your edge?”

 

  1. Research

You have to research which company you are going to apply for. Sometimes you just go and apply and not even prepared. You don’t know which company name it was. It happens, you just go from one interview to another interview another interview without even knowing what the company’s all about and what they represent.

 

  1. Take deep breaths

Inhale, Exhale. That would really help you a lot. It will help you slow down when you’re talking. If you talk too fast there is an indication that you are very nervous and you tend to make more mistakes. I have another trick that I used when I was joining the beauty pageant. When I was still a kid, being the tallest one in school, I’ve always automatically picked to represent the classroom. If they ask you a question, you have to answer them the way beauty pageant candidates will answer questions and they actually practice this with a mirror. If you have a memorized script, you have to answer it in front of a mirror and memorize your script. Practice in front of the mirror so you would know how to also project when you are delivering the answers. That is one basic trick that most beauty pageants candidates do before they enter a pageant. It is very helpful also for your job interviews.

 

6. Get professional help

If all else fails I would suggest you get help either from someone who has been through on what you’re going through. Maybe you have a friend is already a flight attendant or if you have a relative that is a teacher or an HR officer who can give you some tips and practice with them.

If you want the one-on-one session that will help you personally which areas you need to go through. I would suggest you go for a cabin attendant training school. There are many to choose from in the Philippines. I saw one from the Jose Rizal University that they have this kind of program. You can check that out. WCC and ICATS. I made a video about them (ICATS Flight attendant review school). We did a review on one of my friends who went to that flight attendant school.

Can I be a Flight Attendant if? (Part II)

Can I be a Flight Attendant if?

Can I be a Flight Attendant if?

You requested it, you get it!

Basically, this is the same as I did two years ago…
Called “Can I still be a flight Attendant if ______?

Since most of you guys are asking these questions, I made another video just for you!

Let’s get started!

 

Can I be a Flight Attendant if?

1 .Can I be a Flight Attendant if I don’t know how to swim?  You can! But, you should know how to float!

Swimming like the professional kind of swimming is that really be all and end all of the things? Some airlines will test you in swimming before they hire you. However, most of the other airlines don’t. As long as if they told you to jump, you should jump your ass! You should really jump when they asked you to jump. That’s basically about it.

 

2. Can I be a Flight Attendant if I have tattoos? If it’s not showing, it’s okay!

Some airlines they will ask you if they want to know if you have any, then you could reveal it to them. Yes, you have a tattoo, but it’s not a big deal. Especially for Qatar Airways, they really ask. It’s a part of the system they ask on the second day. They would ask if are there any more tattoos that you would like to declare. Often, people are shy to say and would think that if they have a tattoo they will not get in. But I’m telling you guys, I was on the third day and some people have tattoos and it’s okay. They got in! However, it really depends on the season. Sometimes they hire people with tattoos, and sometimes they don’t. I really don’t know the reason why, but who knows what they are thinking. I assure you guys, on my third day in Qatar Airways, when I was applying back then. They gave us a paper with the picture of a man-like figure and told us to put our birthmarks, tattoos or moles. The interviewers asked us to put an “X” mark on the body part if you have such. Maybe they just want to identify our body in case of the worst case scenarios.

A viewer asked me, Nicole Benson. She is a cancer survivor and she had lost hair. So she had a tattoo on her eyebrows and hair extensions. I don’t think it really matters. But if they do ask you, tell them that “I have a tattoo on my brows because I’m a cancer survivor.” You could tell them that in a positive light – “and now I have a perfect eyebrow.” Don’t say it in a way that you’re shy or sad because of cancer or feeling down. Don’t ever show your energy go down. I think this is what they are looking for when they ask. They want to startle you “Hey do you have any tattoos or moles?” (you got caught).  We have those 3D tattoos that fade out in time. I think that’s okay. Those are cosmetic procedures to beautify ladies. I don’t think that’s really something that the recruiter would mind.

One of my tips on my blog way back, I shared that this is just a technique to see how confident you are in yourself. You have to say “Oh! Yes, I have a tattoo here.” (say it in a normal way but not over confidently) but if you say “I think I have a tattoo here…” (shy or hesitant) if you acted like that then they will not hire you. That’s just my psychology/thinking.

 

3. Extensions? It’s not allowed.

Also, Nicole asked me about hair extensions. Right now in my present company, it’s not allowed to have hair extensions. They’re not even allowing us to have nail extensions, fake nails, fake eyelashes and everything the like (fake/extensions). When You’re at the beginning of this industry they’re very strict with these. You could say that “Yeah, I have a hair extension.” If it’s just for the sake of beautifying yourself then they would ask you to remove it but then I think in your (Nicole) case it really depends because you’re a cancer survivor. Maybe they will give you some consideration. But per standard in the manual, it’s not allowed.

I would like to tell you guys, you have to pass the interviews first and then after you get qualified to become cabin crew, that’s the time that they will tell you to remove this… remove that… do this… and do that. It’s not a matter of having a tattoo then you won’t apply anymore because that’s not how it works. How it works in this industry is to apply first. If you qualify then you do those changes because if you removed your tattoo (laser gun or whatever) and then you got to the interview and they didn’t hire you. Damn girl that’s bad! First, make sure that they hire you before making any alternative changes on your body. They will basically tell you to do these changes and they will ask you if you’re willing to change these. If you get in of course the answer is yes, right?!

 

4. Moles, Syringomas, Scars, and Birthmarks? This goes the same as mentioned above. One of you guys asked me,  “If you have a syringoma and you’re a guy can you still be a flight attendant?” Same principle, apply first and see if they want you to remove those. Also with the scars and birthmarks.

 

5. Need to have smooth underarm? They won’t check.

Somebody actually asked me if it needs to have a smooth underarm. I thought, what do you know maybe they check the underarms. But in all of my experiences, they don’t and they haven’t. I don’t think they will. I hope so not. They don’t check underarms, don’t worry you’re good!

 

6.Can I be a Flight Attendant if I have Freckles? Yes, yes, yes!

I have a very good friend of mine, she has freckles on her face especially when the Sun hits her face. It all comes out, so it’s no problem. As I mentioned on my previous videos “If you can CONCEAL it, you can MAKE it!” Guys, you have freckles those are beautiful. When you’re applying, conceal it. Reserve those (freckles) for the sunny days or summer.

 

7. Can I be a Flight Attendant if I have Hairy arms? Bleach it.

I get this question a lot and I let me tell you something. When I was working as a flight attendant. They asked us to bleach our arms. In the Philippines, we have this bleaching powder ‘Etta’s’. It’s a powder that you mix with Hydrogen Peroxide and then you make a paste, then put it all over your arms then you make it stay for 30 minutes or so. Then wash it off. After, your hair becomes brown, cool right? No need to shave because some people don’t want to. It has side effects like it grows more and ingrown. It’s better to bleach to achieve that light brown color. Unless the person hiring tells you to shave them, then you have to! Male applicants don’t need to shave, just for female.

 

8. Can I be a Flight Attendant if I have Scoliosis? <15° you’re fine!

How much is scoliosis can they accept? All of us might have a certain degree of scoliosis. Airlines don’t check but some are very particular with this. Qatar Airways accepts up to 15 degrees of scoliosis, if it is more than that, I’m sorry but they won’t. It’s their own policy. However, for other airlines like Cebu Pac and PAL, they don’t really check unless in your general chest x-ray shows that you have a very curvy spine.

 

9. Height? 5’3ft/160cms is the standard.

I already talked about this on my previous video but I see that a lot of people still asking about the height. Most airlines require 5’3ft or 160cms and that is the standard. If you stand shorter than this, can tell you one event that happened in my previous company. We were lacking a lot in crew/manpower that time. The HR department didn’t specifically specify a height requirement but conducted a reach test for all applicants. If you can reach up to 200cms you’re in! That’s one of the reasons we had really cute petite girls with us. It was okay because they can reach the certain height requirement. Certain height requirement is needed because, in the aircraft, there is certain emergency equipment that you have to reach. You don’t have the time to look for something to step on. Sometimes they really need people. Your task as someone who is falling below 5’3, be aware of these hiring.

 

You got to have friends in the same circle like I mentioned in my other video. You got to have “applying friends/buddies” with you. Don’t lose hope! You could still travel the world either as a flight attendant or as a regular citizen.

This is not the be all and end all of it all. ??

I hope you guys got your clarifications and if I get more questions that are unique and I think interesting then maybe I would do another video like this, maybe a part 3.

Should I get a Flight Attendant Course? ICATS FA School Review

Should I get a Flight Attendant Course? | MISSKAYKRIZZ

 

Flight Attendant Course:

Do I need the training to get a Flight Attendant Job? What are the advantages and disadvantages of enrolling in a Flight Attendant School? Is it gonna be worth it? Would I recommend it to you? How is it like? Would it give you an edge to the interview?

These are just one of those burning questions that you guys have been asking me for a couple of years now and I have always answered these questions based solely on my experience

To give a more educated answer, I did a little more digging and I explore the other side of the coin. I actually talked to 5 friends that have gone through the experience and learned some valuable insight. However, my friends are very camera-shy (typical Filipina quality) But, I am so happy that one of them finally agreed to share an interview and talk about their experience of taking a flight attendant course via one of the FA Schools available in the Philippines. I interviewed Mara, my friend. She went through a Flight attendant course in ICATS (flight attendant school).

Miss Mara and me during our Initial FA training as Official Cabin Crew in Middle East @maraclarazara
Miss Mara and me during our Initial FA training as Official Cabin Crew in Middle East @maraclarazara

We talked about:

  1. Why did she enroll in the flight attendant course/school in the first place?
  2. How was the training like of getting a flight attendant course?
  3. What were the advantages and disadvantages of going through a course like this?
  4. Would she recommend others to go for a flight attendant school?

 

So this is how the interview went and this is what she has to tell us…

Q – How did you decide that you wanted to enter the flight attendant school?

A – I knew about ICATS from my friend. She came from there and I saw her, she’s with Oman Air now. So I asked her how did she make it? She recommended (ICATS) so I decided to enroll.

 

Q – What can you tell about the class? How long did your class last?

A – 3 months (not so sure). It was 3 years ago. I think it’s 40 days. Weekends were not counted. Only week days.

 

Q – So what can you say about your experience with ICATS?

A –  First and for most, I met a lot of friends there. We have the same goals. There are a lot of things introduced about aviation. They have given a heads up about the world that you’ll enter. Because I have no experience working in airlines. So they were able to build up my confidence. They will teach you how to walk, makeup and everything. The instructors are very hands on. We were like family, yet they are very professional. I learned a lot.

 

Q –  Was it 8am-5pm class?

A – Yes, It’s a whole day class and we had exams too. There is a swimming class too I really enjoyed.

 

Q – What I heard about them, there is a screening? Will they interview you first before you enter (ICATS)?

A – Yes there is.  So not all who wants to enroll can enter. In that moment you’ll know if you’ll make it or not. The first day is the screening. There is a height requirement.

 

Q – What do they ask you, Is it same as the questions on the (Airline) Interview? What do they do on your screening?

A – They’ll ask like “Tell me something about yourself” and such.

 

Q – Will you know if you passed right away?

A – Yes.  They taught us to how to answer questions in the interview too. It was a big help. They have taught us so many things. Personal development, interview questions, and answers.

 

Q – I heard they have a training about aircraft like airport codes?

A – Yes. I have a book but I left it at home.

 

Q – They have a book?

A – Yes they have. Not all get the chance to enter the school. I was surprised.

 

Q – Do you recommend enrolling to a flight attendant school to aspiring flight attendants?

A – Yes of course!

 

 

 

Q – So we have talked about the pros, what can you tell about cons when going for a flight attendant school?

A – Well, you have to spend a lot of money. Because for me, I live in the province. I have to rent a dormitory for that and the food. I don’t have a salary. It’s like going back to school.

 

Q – How much did you pay?

A – I guess it’s 56k. (56,000Php)

 

Q – Is that with the uniforms and everything?

A – Yes, I think so. I’m not so sure coz it has been three years ago. I’m not sure now. Maybe they could check on the website or maybe visit them.

 

Q – Where is their office?

A – It’s located in Pasig.

 

Q – What are the consequences in going for flight attendant school?

A – I’ll say the time. What if there is hiring (Airline walk-in/open day) and yet you’re still in the FA school and you paid already. Grab the opportunity immediately. Wherever you are, whatever you do, if you have the opportunity, grab it right away. The money for the dormitory and tuition fee.

 

Q – But over all, did you enjoy your experience there?

A – Yes of course. Until the graduation, we were all happy. The thing is, even if you enrolled in a flight attendant school, not everybody can get in an airline. Although you are together as friends. You can’t all enter at the same airline. I have a friend, she’s now on Qatar Airways. Others, they are now pilots. Maybe they fell in love and they want to do other kinds of stuff. Then the other one went back as a nurse. It still depends on you. What you really want to do. Like it was served to you but you’ll decide what to do next. If you’re really motivated. It’s not a guarantee that you’ll be a flight attendant even if you went to the flight attendant school. Although they will help and prepare you for the interview. That’s what I liked the most of the instructors, they will really help you in the instructions. They are very organized.

 

Q – How was it before when you were applying? Have you had any special treatment?

A – Somehow yes, we were prioritized

 

Q – Were you placed on the priority list like there is a special line for the graduates of the flight attendant school?

A – Yes that’s right.

 

Q – Do they message you?

A – Yes. They’ll let you know if there is an opening for a certain airline. They will follow up necessary information you need to know. You’re on-track where you will apply. That’s the benefit.

 

Q – Everybody will fall in line, but you have your own line (FA school graduates) right?

A – Yes, that’s correct.

 

Q – Does that apply to all hirings or does it depends?

A – As long as it has been referred by ICATS.

 

Q –  I remember, PalEx had a hiring only for ICATS graduates. They had a picture before. Have you not heard about that?

A – No, I was too busy flying around. I’m proud to say that I came from ICATS.  I strongly recommend ICATS. Coz I came from there of where and look where I am now and I still look back where I came from.

 

 

 

Thank you, Mara, for sharing! I Hope you enjoyed that interview. A quick recap of everything of going through a flight attendant school are the following:

Disadvantages/Cons: The money, time, and it is not a guarantee to get hired as an FA even if you graduated the flight attendant course.

Advantages/Pros: You get introduced to the aviation world so that during the training you will not be so overwhelmed with trying to cram everything on that small span of time. They will give you interview skills. Teach you personality development. How to do your makeup. Affiliation with different airlines that are hiring. That means they will call you up if an airline is hiring and tell you to prepare. I think it’s a bit personalized when you get in to the flight attendant course.
