“Recruiters spend an average of only 4 – 6 seconds reviewing your resume” – The Ladders
- Take a First Aid Course
The most important duty of a Cabin Crew Member is to ensure the safety of passengers. A person with a background in first aid shows the airline that he/she is 5 steps ahead of other applicants and this definitely works to your advantage.
- Learn More Languages
Learn as many international languages as you can. This will help you get international routes faster and also helps your application should apply to big airlines.
- Get Customer Service Experience
Whilst you are waiting for your Cabin Crew career to kick off, get yourself a job in the service industry that exposes you to customer service directly or indirectly. You can work as a waitress, sales assistant, petrol station attendant, marketing assistant etc. If you can get a job in the aviation field that is even better. You will need to keep that job for at least 6 months and have impeccable references. Customer service experience is always on top of ALL airline requirements when they are looking for Cabin Crew.
- Get A Cabin Crew Licence
If resources permit, register with a Cabin Crew training institution and get licenced. Most airlines, especially budget airlines require that you have a licence so they save on training you for 6 weeks. Whilst this is not a must, it works to your advantage at the end of the day.
Do all of the above and you are most likely to make the cut.
