Do you know anyone who breezes through interviews without a hint of nervousness?  Wouldn’t that be great?  Unfortunately, it’s rare!  Most of us get nervous just thinking about it, and need all the help we can get.  For anyone planning to attend cabin crew interviews, some tailored advice follows.

4 tips to a successful cabin crew interview

 

Be prepared – make sure you understand the interview process, do your research on the airline and prepare your answers with all that you know about the airline in mind.

Stand out – don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through. Emphasise your unique points of difference i.e. what sets you apart from others.  Just don’t stand out for the wrong reasons!

Communicate effectively – doing this job well requires top communication skills so it’s essential that you demonstrate yours throughout the interview.  Don’t panic if your English isn’t perfect, you can also impress them with your listening skills and body language, and by knowing when to stop talking.

Sell yourself confidently – but wait for the right time to do so.  Do it subtly, and when appropriate.
