Do all of my clients succeed? No, but about 80% do, and that is a significant number, considering that only 1-2 % of applicants are hired nationwide.
Do I guarantee placement? No. But I can guarantee you that you will be the best-prepared applicant in the room when you got for your interview (unless another of my clients is in your group – that has happened twice over the past 16 years).
So, what do I do? I point you in the right way, give you the right tools, and hope that I can bring out of you the best of your “right stuff” so you succeed at your interview. Ultimately, the two biggest variables at your interview are your preparation and what mood your interviewer is in that day
You might like to call me first at 818-881-6790. It’s free. If I sense that you are not cut out for the job, I’ll tell you, because you’d just struggle and end up in misery, and if you are not cut out to be an outstanding flight attendant, I’ll save a lot of grief to people who might have to work with you and tolerate your misery. Flight attending is not for everyone.
If you honestly believe that flying is your calling and have the best attributes to provide outstanding customer service under any circumstances, if you are sure you will not fall apart in critical situations, that you are ready to put your life on the line to help others, than you might have what it takes and should go for it. Why do I tell you that? Because, at one time or another, you will need all your stamina to stay together and be useful to everyone.
So, what should you do?
The initial interviews (often done by video-conferencing) may be done very soon after submitting your application. I suggest that you do the following first:
Check out the airline’s (the one you like the best) website, and see what is happening. Airlines’ needs change from day to day at times, especially in uncertain economical and political times like now.
If the airline is hiring, get your stuff together. That includes your ten-year residential and employment history, your passport, your original social security card and driver’s license, and your resume. Be prepared to have your resume both on the paper and in the electronic form, so you can just paste it into the application when you are ready.
When you look at the website, see if you can find out what type of resume the airline prefers now. Is it “bullet” form, or is it “paragraph” type? In the paragraph type you can do a better selling job, if it is done well.
Contact me with your resume by sending it to my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll review it for free, tell you if it should be improved and give you pointers. You can try to do it yourself, or I can prepare the resume “package” for you.
While this is in progress, you should start getting ready for your interview. I put together a book with over 250 flight attendant interview questions and the best answers. The book also contains workbook pages, so you can put down your own answers, which are based on your personal history and experience. The answers in the book should not be memorized; they serve as a guideline to create your own, credible answers that will score with the interviewer.
If you would like to see a sample of how thorough my preparation materials are, click on the NEWSLETTER tab. You will see a little sample of how detailed my materials are, and I guarantee you, you will enjoy reading as well.
If you are like me, you’d like to know the cost of all this. The resume package is $35.00, and the question and answer book is $19.95 if purchased separately. If you get both at the same time, the whole thing is $50.00, shipping included. If you are in a hurry, I can prepare your resume the same day and e-mail you the questions and answers material (on top of sending you the hard copy – there is no extra charge for it). I accept personal checks, money orders and PayPal.
It also includes a free mock interview over the phone, so that I can see if you have done your work and will be competitive. It is very, very competitive.
Above all, I’ll be by your side for as long as you need help – during the interview process, in training, when you start flying and when you encounter difficult situations.
At no additional cost.
And after you pass successfully the interview, we can talk about getting ready for the training – if you would like to do that. I never push anyone, never force sales on anyone, but let you decided what you need. At any time.
So, what do you say?
