You worked so hard on that motivation letter. Your cv looks impeccable. Your application has been sent out. And there it is. The invitation for selection day! This is your moment to shine. You have prepared like crazy, because this is the job you’ve been dreaming of.
This is exactly how I felt and what I went through applying for the job of stewardess. Although I don’t have any experience with other airlines than my own, hopefully my experiences can help you to becoming a stewardess.
My recruitment process was made up of three parts. First there are the basic requirements which you will be asked about in the online recruitment system when sending out your cv and motivation letter. If you meet all these requirements, then you’ll application will be positive and you will receive an invitation for a selection day.
The second part is selection day 1. There will be a second one if you’ll make it through this day. This day for me meant an English oral test. You’ll sit down with an English recruiter who will check if your English is good enough. Don’t take this part to easy. I have seen many girls who came in for half an hour and were sent home because their English wasn’t sufficient enough.
If you’ll make it through the English test, then there will be a group discussion next. You’ll sit down together and answer questions from the recruiters. If you survive this part as well, you’re one of the lucky ones who gets to go to the last part. From what I have heard an estimated 30 to 40 percent makes it through this first day.
The third part is the final interview. Here you get to tell them about your skills, your motivation and everything else. This is the part where you get to convince the recruiters that you’re up to the job of a stewardess. This final part will decide if they’re going to hire you or not.
So this was a short explanation about the selection days. Of course, this my experience. The recruitment process can be totally different for other airlines or perhaps already have been changed.
