Cabin Crew Interview Tips

  • [#Tips 1] Follow the Dress Code

Tip number one follows the dress code. When an airline announces that they will have an open day or recruitment day, we usually include the dress codes in their job ads. Like any other job interview, they require their applicants to wear business attire.
So what should you wear? Will say that for females, you are required to wear a formal top, a jacket or a blazer, and a knee-length skirt. Accessories are allowed; you can wear plate stud earrings, necklace, or bracelet but nothing too flashy.
And for men, when you say business attire, you will be expected to wear a suit, a formal shirt, a necktie, and leather shoes. When it comes to following the dress code, the most important thing is for you to look sharp, look neat, and look decent when you face your cabin crew interviewer.

  • [#Tips 2] Well-Groomed

Now go to tip number two to be well-groomed. I’ve previously written a detailed article on cabin crew interview days grooming, so you can go ahead and click on that. But if you’re interested to learn how I do all this makeup for men? It’s just very important for you to come. They’re very neat with no unwanted hair on your face. Make sure that your face is not oily or shiny when you go for your interview. It will be ideal for keeping it in a bun, a ponytail, or a French twist if you have long hair. For every girl who has short hair medium to short hair, if you can tie it in a ponytail, that would be good. But if your hair is too short to be tied into a ponytail, don’t force it. Just put a clip on the side. The important thing is to keep your hair away from your face for you to look neat. Remember, it’s not nice if you’re going to go for your interview with your hair and cap. It doesn’t speak nicely when it comes to your hygiene and your grooming.

Next is nailing; friends, I’ve been receiving questions about nails. Suppose it’s okay to wear brightly coloured nail polishes like orange or yellow personally. Do French manicure because it looks very professional and very neat. That’s just my opinion. If you want to wear red polish or a light new light pink or nude nail polish, that would be acceptable as well. My suggestion is to try to stay away from neon colours; bright colours are very flashy nail polish. Remember, you want the interviewer’s attention on your face and how you’re talking and not on your very brightly coloured nails. But the more important is to make sure that they are well-trimmed all to the same length and no dirt under the nails. And same goes for men.

Freinds go into your cabin crew interview well-groomed is very important as it shows your interviewer that you took time and prepare to look presentable to them. If you follow these last two cabin crew interview tips, you’re on your way to making a very good first impression.

[#Tips 3] Observe Proper Posture, Facial Expression, and Tone of Voice

Friends tip number three observe proper posture, facial expression, and tone of voice. All these things fall under nonverbal signals or cues. 55% of communication is nonverbal; you can tell a lot about someone just by the way they talk, they said, they stand, they use their hands in a conversation. That is why you need to master all these nonverbal cues before you go for your cabin crew interview.

Sometimes when you go for your interview, you will be asked to stand in front of a panel. The important thing when you’re standing in front of a panel is to convey confidence. So how will you do that?
When you stand in front of your panel, you should ensure that your chin is level square. Your back pulls it back once you pull your shoulder back. This instantly gives you a straighter back, and it gives you a very composed, very comfortable stance.

As for the hands, you can keep it on the side or keep it like so holding one hand on top of the other, and you can even move your hands while you start talking to your interviewer.
As for the legs, the position that I find most comfortable is the semi-L position. I put one leg at the back facing right or left and then the other leg in the forward. This one gives you a very stable base, and it keeps you very well balanced even when you are wearing heels.

Now let’s talk about the big nose when you are standing in front of a panel. Those are slouching, crossing your arms, putting your hands on your waist, putting your hands behind you, putting your hands anywhere else that it’s not supposed to go. These are all bad cues. These are all negative body language, and for sure, if you do this in front of your interview, you’re never going to get the job.

Now let’s talk about sitting posture. Whenever we have discussed, the standing posture applies here except that you will be seated. The important thing is for you to sit upright same concept square your shoulders for the hands you can keep on your legs. Also, put one hand on top of the other thumbs up thumbs down. Whatever is more comfortable for you is fine.

Feet could be facing forward, or if you’re not comfortable doing this, you can also turn on the side keep one leg on top of the other.

Now let’s talk about the don’ts. When you are seated number one, slow chain sees it doesn’t look nice when you’re slouching or slide on the seat like soul crossing your legs for girls. The worst part is swinging your leg. If you’re the interview, where do you think you’re going to hire somebody who sits like this in front of you. If your answer is no, it means you’re not supposed to do it.

As a cabin crew, we go through stress daily; we encounter different scenarios. Different people will test your patience when you are onboard the aircraft. That is why you need to master controlling your facial expressions when you are in front of people.

Before you go for your cabin crew interview, I would highly suggest that you sit in front of a mirror practising your smile, talk to yourself, and even take videos of yourself and then watch it back later on. Because that way, you’re going to be aware of the negative facial expressions you make whenever you’re talking to someone. You can even ask your family or friends to tell you the negative facial expressions you make when you talk to them.

However, a tip for facial expression is to always ensure that your facial expression is aligned to what you are saying or the message you’re trying to convey. Of course, if you’re trying to deliver sad news, you’re not going to say it with very happy things. Like it’s so happy for you somebody died like that.

Through your cabin crew interview, try to maintain eye contact with your interviewer. If it’s too uncomfortable for you, you can start looking at the other parts of the person’s face, like eyebrows, the nose or the ears. From a fair distance, they wouldn’t even know that you’re not looking at their eyes.

Friends, I said when we were discussing posture, it is important for you to keep your hands relaxed at all times. That’s why it helps when you hold them in good manners. Most of us are not even aware of what our hands are doing half the time we speak.

If you speak softly, it might be misunderstood as being insecure or shy. The opposite goes when you speak too loudly. People might think that you’re overconfident aureate that you are too arrogant or full of yourself. See him when you talk too fast or too slow getting the perfect balance of all these things can be tricky, but it will help you convey your information about yourself even better. The more clearly you convey your thoughts and ideas, the better chance you get at landing your dream job.

So how do you perfect this, how do you express yourself better, how do you use your tone of voice properly? This will all be mastered through practice.

[#Tips 4] Be Confident Trust Yourself

Tip number four be confident. Trust yourself, your capabilities and your strengths. Nobody else can help you become more confident but yourself. As cliche, as it may sound confidence, is from within different people get their confidence from different things. Some people become more confident when they’re dressed up nicely when they have nice things or give themselves a pep talk, or some become more confident when people praise them for their skills and not or how they look like. Suddenly I get my confidence when I know that I have prepared hard, and I know that I have studied hard for something that brings to me.

[#Tips 5] Research, Study, and Comes Prepared

Tip number five research, study and comes prepared. The biggest mistake you could ever make is to think that this is just the cabin crew interview and that as long as I’m pretty, I’m handsome, I’m going to get the job if you’re thinking this way! You’re very much wrong.
There is more to this job than smiling, putting on makeup, and looking nice. Airlines take pride in their safety ratings, and that goes without saying that cabin crew go through a lot of rigorous safety training before they get released to start flying.
Aside from the physical aspect, the interviewers also look for a person’s intellectual capacity. Don’t get me wrong; they’re not looking for scientists or geniuses. I’m trying to say that as a camping crew, you will be faced with different situations when you come on board, and your critical thinking will be tested. They’re trying to look for well-rounded people coming in prepared for an interview means researching about the airline read about your achievements, business prospects, and reading about the country where the airline is based.
If it’s international, this will show the recruiters that you’re interested in an airline, which will help you realise. If that airline you’re applying for is a perfect fit for you and if you have already researched about the airline. When you come for the interview, and they ask you anything about it, it will be very easy for you because you are prepared you’ve read about it, and you’re most likely going to give them the answer they’re looking for.

[#Tips 6] Be Honest

Final, and the last tip, be honest. Just in case you don’t know the answer to the question that they throw at you, no problem, don’t make up any stories. Be straightforward; tell them that you’re not too familiar with that topic. But would like to know more about it in the future. Instead of that, you can start sharing things that you do know that it’s slightly related to that topic. If an interview starts asking a question that’s not related to you or is more related to the company

So if you start making up stories or inventing answers, it’s not going to make a good impression, right. Just one story I’d like to share with you that’s just slightly related to this topic is when I went for my interview with the local airline in India. I was fresh; we had not experienced anything when I wonder. I was asked can you tell us anything about our airline, and I was dumbfounded. After all, I didn’t know anything about them because I came unprepared. I just printed my resume the night before.
