Impressions from our last Cabin Crew Interview preparation course in Rome

On 8-9 October 2016, How to be Cabin Crew team organized the second cabin crew interview preparation course in Italy, Rome. We had 2 days of intensive preparation, which offered us the opportunity to meet amazing students, with an enormous desire to learn a lot about the Cabin Crew position and also to get their wings as soon as possible.

We had students from Germany, Italy, Cameron, Philippines and Romania and during the 2 days we tried to create the most beautiful and motivating learning experience for our students. The feedback received at the end of our course made us realize that we succeeded to make our students feel more confident and ready to fly among the clouds.


Georgiana and me went to Rome on 5th of October and we enjoyed 2 days off before the course started. We wandered the streets of Rome, we ate lots of pasta, pistachio gelato (my favorite) and coconut gelato (Georgiana’s favorite), we celebrated together one more year in my life (on 6 October was my birthday) and took advantage of all the beauties this cities has to offer.

Most of times, we are working from Monday to Monday, so whenever we have a day off for ourself we try to take fully advantage of it.

.

But let me tell you about the course and the beautiful experience we had preparing students of different nationalities and backgrounds. We were lucky because our students had an advanced level of English, so we had a fluent and extremely friendly conversation. At each course, our students become gradually our friends and dear people that I try to motivate every day to be better, to have more confidence in them and to aim as high as possible. Our students in Rome already had customer service experience, so the process of learning was extremely easy, each one understanding rapidly how they have to approach the clients/passengers and to solve the situations in which the recruiters could put them through in order to prove their customer service abilities.

We exercised together the stages of an airline interview, public speaking techniques, English tests and lots of games to stimulate their creativity and critical thinking. We laughed and learned a lot and we made sure our students will leave the place much more prepared for an airline interview, more positive and self confident.

I am very grateful for each course and for the people I have the chance to meet and I am very happy we manage to expand our courses all over Europe. And I truly believe that this is only the beginning.

I leave here one of the feedbacks received after our course, from Maecy Villegas, our student from Philippine, based in Milan:

”Dear Anca,

I have learned a lot from you and my colleagues during these two days of course. I would like to thank you for this amazing opportunity. I am more confident now because I know I am prepared and ready to spread my wings.

You were so nice to us and I felt really comfortable during your classes. Not only that I learned a lot, but I also had fun. I had the chance to meet new friends and a mentor (you!). This course is one of the best things I’ve ever done because it gives me a little more sparks to shine. I am thankful for your help and your advice and I will always keep them on my mind and try to follow them as much as I can.

You encouraged me to always give the best of me in every challenge I will be facing in my life. You became one of my heroes and the image of success that will inspire me in my career.

Thank you,

Maecy”

See you in the sky!

Adina-Golden Mail

Her green-blue eyes are the first thing that makes you watch her closely. Warm smile, soft look and she knows how to make herself liked from the first interaction. She is Adina, our student who shortly will start working as Cabin Crew for Primera Air.

She came to know us last year in October at our meeting with How to be Cabin Crew readers, and after that event she hadn’t stopped working till she made her dream come true. She followed 2 courses with our team and in a few months her dream was real: she received the long waiting GOLDEN EMAIL.

For her age, Adina is an example of ambition and desire to overcome her limits. She has 21 years and customer service experience as far to another 5 years, this bringing her the winning ticket before Primera Air recruiters who saw in her the right candidate for the Cabin Crew position at their Scandinavian company.

  1. When did you thought you could pursue a career as a flight attendant and what was hidden behind such a decision?

When I started thinking about a career as Cabin Crew I was a teenager, somewhere in high school, in a small town from the beautiful area of Toscana, Italy. There I lived approximately 7 years, there I formed myself, and I finished high school.  I came back to Bucharest to continue my studies at Foreign Languages Faculty. I already abandoned the idea of working among the clouds till the second year of faculty when a good friend of mine and colleague told me that her dream after she finishes her studies is to become a Flight Attendant. That was the moment when I dreamed again about traveling the world and to accompany world travelers to their dream destinations.

  1. What is your present job? Do you think your experience helped you in any way at the interview?

At the moment I don’t have a job, but I started working from 16 years old because I always liked being around people and being useful. I started as a Customer Services for an Italian company, and then I worked as a Waitress and Bartender in a restaurant-bar. In the end, here in Bucharest I had the opportunity to work as a Receptionist at a hotel. I think these jobs helped me so much to form myself as a person and in the same time were a plus at the interview, as well as my knowledge of foreign languages.

  1. How did you prepare for the interview with airline companies? How many interviews did you attend before succeeding?

When I am interested in something I start a little research. The internet was my big source of information, I read all sorts of articles, I entered on many forums, I consulted different websites, among which was your website, “How to be Cabin Crew”. I started taking notes, details about each company and also started to study a little bit the aviation vocabulary. I decided to follow your courses, experience which brought me a lot of courage, and more ambition to make my dreams come true. Excellent trainers and a very relaxing atmosphere at your venue made all the information necessary for the interview and about this job to be assimilated very easily and with a pleasure rarely encountered.

  1. How did you manage to stay positive in the moment when you were eliminated from an interview?

It is true I participated to multiple interviews for different airline companies. In most cases I didn’t managed to pass the CV Drop, which disappointed me a little. I didn’t understand what was wrong, what was missing, why (even if everyone saw in me the stewardess girl in the movies) I didn’t succeeded to pass the final interview. After a few attempts, I stopped asking myself questions, I was more relaxed, I tried not to show the recruiters the perfection in me and I went to the interview more relaxed, exactly as I am. I imagined meeting the recruiters like I was meeting my best friends at a coffee shop where we talk and make plans for the future. I think I succeeded to bring that good feeling and optimism and that was what led to my success. I encourage everyone to not give up after a few attempts. I am sure that each one of us has a place in the clouds that is waiting to be filled.

colaj-adina-dumitriu

  1. What do you think it is the biggest challenge for a flight attendant?

The biggest challenge for Cabin Crew? Well…I think here the answer is more individual. For some missing home and the loved ones is the biggest challenge, for others the fact that they can not communicate in their mother tongue at their work place, having a different lifestyle, to confront with different and difficult situation and persons along the flight.

  1. Tell me what are the most 3 important qualities that a future candidate should possess at an interview?

After I participated to so many and diverse interviews I made myself aware that it wasn’t my fault. I started to think that at the interview day it must be “love at first sight” between the recruiter and candidate. This idea helped me stay in track when I was eliminated from another interview and to attend more interviews ready to win the recruiters. It is very well known that the preparation before the interview is fundamental. Information is the key. Confidence in yourself and perseverance are, as well, an important factor. And smile, lots of natural big smile, that bring with it warmth, love, optimism.

  1. Do you want to transmit a message for How to be Cabin Crew team?

The founders of this project succeeded to introduce me from the first moments in the amazing story of Cabin Crew Life, in what means life in the clouds. Good luck to future readers and candidates and to motivate them I remained that “The sky is not the limit, it’s just the beginning!”

After 5 years as Cabin Crew: nothing is hard if you have your wings

Lili worked for 5 years as Cabin Crew for Etihad Airways. She left the company when she was pregnant with her first child, but she has flying deep in her blood. For her “nothing is hard for those who got their wings”. Lili is brave, she followed her dream and started working for Etihad Airways in 2008, when there weren’t so many information about this company in the Middle East.

I was so excited to hear her story as it radiates passion and dedication. Nevertheless, Lili is a beautiful soul, a former amazing cabin crew.

How did you start flying? Tell us about your first encounter with aviation

Dear Anca, through this interview I hope to inspire young people to fly, to chase their dreams and do things with passion. I got to fly because that was my faith. I didn’t choose this job, this job chose me. I never thought that one day I will do this or that I will arrive that far, I think I didn’t allow myself dreaming so far. But then I got my wings and I learned to fly. I simply applied to all the jobs I thought were interesting, even for those abroad and one day I woke up with a phone call from a recruiting agency who offered me the possibility to attend an interview with an airline company from UAE. (I hadn’t even heard of this country.) Normally, I would have ignored such an invitation, because I was called to go in another city to attend the interview. I was 27 years old and I wanted to leave the country, to see how the world is. I succeeded the second time, therefore in august 2008 I arrived in Abu Dhabi. It was a whole different world, at first it was hard to accommodate with such high temperatures, but I had the luck to know someone from my hometown who made the accomodation easier. We are still very good friends till this day, and she is my connection with UAE and with the job among the clouds. I had 2 months of intensive training. We had courses till the afternoon, we arrived home at midnight and the next day we woke up in the morning to study and at 11 am we were going again back to the academy. It seemed liked my dreem job fit me like a glove. And it was exactly like that. I graduated with high grades at Safety and it was my strong point along my career

You worked 5 years for Etihad Airways. How was your first flight? Where did you fly?

The first flight was extremely difficult, I was supposed to be an Observer during the flight, but I had to work exactly the same as the others in order to satisfy all the passengers requests, it was a very interesting experience for me. The flight was full, on a small airplane (A320). I must say that even before knowing about this job, I was passionate about the shows on National Geographic related to airplanes (Aircraft Investigations, Disasters in air). There may be a destiny, right?

How was a day for an Etihad Airways flight attendant?

A flying day was a real ritual, because it meant the same make-up, the same hair style, same uniform and a Briefing before each flight. After this, you will walk proudly with the whole crew under the starring eyes of the passengers. The flights were mostly tiring, but everything was fine as long as the crew knew how to communicate and work in a team.  If this didn’t happen, the flight would be a failure, but each flight is a lesson. This job/world taught me to be grateful (for the fact that I was born in Romania and I had the chance to have an education, for the fact that I knew 4 seasons, and so on.), I learned to be the best, to be patient, to respect different cultures, to accept that we are all what we are.

Tell us a funny story of one of your flights.

Hmm, there were so many. I remember on the second flight as an Observer when my colleagues along with the Captain tried to prank me. Ah, a whole flight laughed when the copilot forgot to deactivate “PA” (public announcement) and all the passengers heard their private conversation after landing.

Have you ever encountered an emergency situation? How did you react?

Fortunate, I haven’t had serious incidents in my 5 years as Cabin Crew. I once had a gentleman who fell in a deep sleep and his wife thought he died. In this kind of situations most important it is to remain calm, to talk with your passengers and to ask the help of your colleagues. In general, I am a strong person, I don’t panic and I manage to deal calmly with this kind of situations and to be useful when needed.

Which was one of the great satisfactions that this job offered you?

Seeing happy people: that hand shake when they left the airplane, that “thank you” in their language, the joy of offering a smile. And not least, the joy of seeing and living for a short period of time in all those places I had the privilege to arrive to.

What will be the disadvantages of this job?

Oh, the minuses…yes, they are plenty. Seen from outside, it is a wonderful job, and nobody knows what it truly means. It involves a lot of physical work, not only mentally, it is about working long hours, taking care of people, washing toilets if necessary, cleaning vomit and the list goes on. The idea is that from the moment you arrived in the airplane till landing, the airplane is your home, and from the moment the doors are closed till opening you are there for anything that the passengers need and trust me a lot can happen: babies can be born, people could die, accidents can happen, and so on.

Do you miss flying? How is your life now? What plans you have in the future?

Yes, I miss it, even if I don’t have time to think about it and my baby girl is offering me all the joy and satisfaction I need. I was still working for Etihad Airways when I got pregnant (I had a long distance relationship with my husband, he was in Romania, and Lia happened on one of our escapades in Istanbul). I flew for 2 more months with her in my belly and my last flight was the longest one. What can I say? It was an amazing experience, I will always say that, I am glad I had this opportunity. If I had another age when I left,  I would have arrived far… I left from a FJ position (First and Business Class Attendant), and I was about to become Cabin Senior, but I didn’t had the opportunity. I have a tattoo “Alis Grave nil” (Nothing is hard for those who have their wings)

Best regards,

Lili.

How I discovered How to be cabin crew team & courses

When I first found How to be cabin crew on Facebook, I told myself “Oh nice, what’s this?”

I think I checked the whole Facebook page and after that I went on the website. I read the whole website for days, then I thought, ok, I’ll apply for a course, why not? I have nothing to lose. So I made a paypal account and paid my course.

For me was, ROME here I come! First time in Rome, first time in Italy. I was confused, will it help me? Am I made for the job ? Will there be a lot of students?

Saturday, on 9th of July 2016, my course started at 11am. I received a warm welcome from Anca and Georgiana, the lovely How to be cabin Crew team. They were SOOO nice, I felt comfortable immediately.

This course made me very confident also about my English, because English is not my first language, and my dear teacher Anca motivated to trust more in myself. I liked a lot the way she held the classes, how she taught us everything regarding the various interviews with airline companies, how she explained each step, how much attention she paid to each one of us.

She’s a very elegant women, and motivates you to obtain the job. Spending time with her for me was like I was already on the plane.

Now, after the course, I’m more motivated and I am feeling 100% confident. During the course, the word BRAVO of my dear teacher was a real BOOST.

Also, through this course I discovered which are my skills and how to underline them better. I did not know I was creative until I heard this from my teacher.

I would highly recommend this course to every person who wants to make his dream come true => BEING CABIN CREW . I’m sure I will get the cabin crew job soon, and will be soooo proud sending you a picture with me wearing my beautiful uniform.

Thanks a lot,

big hugs and kisses,

Asma

Interview with former Qatar Cabin Crew, Zaheer Alvi

When did you first know that you want to be a cabin crew?

Since I was born, I was interested in aviation. My mother told me that whenever I use to see an aircraft, I use to call it ‘My Plane’. However, during my high-school, I always wanted to do something to get into the aircraft business and honestly, to see the world. I think the best idea was either as a pilot or being a cabin crew . When I started looking up aviation jobs, some of my friends and family discouraged me into becoming a pilot. They thought so many people have this job and they can not find a job for themselves. So, I started thinking about other ways of travelling around the world and that was the time I thought of becoming cabin crew.

 

How would you describe yourself before getting into aviation?

It might shock you that I was a very shy person before getting into the airline business. I didn’t talked to strangers and it was very difficult for me to trust other persons. I was mostly quiet and mostly misunderstood due to my quiet behavior in new places. I was so quiet that when I joined the airline business, many people use to think that I don’t like to work with them due to my behavior. But in time I managed to overcome my emotions, and to be more openly and friendly.

13705069_10157090746830265_655377104_n

For how many airlines did you work and for how long?

I have worked only for Qatar Airways for 14 years, because I was born in Doha and I never wanted to leave the place.

 

Which was the highest position that you had in the airline?

I had reached the position of CSD and the reason I never applied for a higher one (for an office job) was because I didn’t wanted to quit flying.

 

Did your private life have to suffer because of traveling so much?

Not really. The reason is that when you enjoy doing something, it will not affect your life or in other word you don’t have to suffer due to the things you are enjoying. No matter what kind of job you have, there are always cons and pros to it. We should remember that a good life is not about WHAT you are doing, it is always about HOW you are doing it. No matter which profession you are working in, if you are not satisfied or you do not enjoy doing it, you are going to suffer not only professionally, but also personally. As I was enjoying flying and always having new people around me, my private life was never affected by my work.

 

Were you sad when you had to stop flying?

Yes, it was a big change. For me, I think flying gets in your blood; once you get used to it, you have to really prepare yourself psychologically to quit.

 

Do you still keep in touch with your friends that you made around the world?

Always! The best thing that happened to me while flying was meeting new people around the world, working with them, travelling with them, getting to know about their cultures, religions etc. It gives you the feeling that you can just meet anyone and you know what they are expecting from you.

 

What are you doing at the moment?

After quitting I finished my studies and right now I have my own business.

13734671_10157090746850265_548158211_n

Can you describe in details a happy/unhappy situation that took place in your flight?

As I spend 11 years of flying in supervisor position, most of the times I have tried my best to make every flight a ‘Happy flight’ and I hope I succeeded. I think the most uncomfortable situations for me where when I had to report someone for not being up to the standards of the company. Luckily for me, I never experienced a fight with passengers or had to intervene in disagreement between cabin crew and passengers. The reason is that our crew was trained to follow the standards of the company strictly, and they always tried to make the flight as pleasant as possible.

Our students feedback from our English for Cabin Crew

English for Cabin Crew is a very dearly course because each time our students are coming with a big baggage of emotions, unconfident in their public speaking abilities followed by a lack of fluency in English.After 3 days and almost 30 hours spent together, the magic happens: our students strip their emotions and fears, are more openly and the result amazes me every time. I discover confident people, prepared to face the tasks from an interview with an enormous smile.

A part of our English for Cabin Crew students,  from May 2016, wrote about their experience at our course and we are sharing it with you.

“It is my first course at which I felt I can be myself, that my dreams will become real. It was a course I will always remember, because I learned to excel and to have more confidence in myself.

I learned so many things for a career in aviation, and the atmosphere was incredible.

I will come back with pleasure and interest at the same time, at another course because I felt it was very useful.

Thank you for having the patience needed in order to make me understand the vast information about this job”

“My darlings,

I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet you and to learn so many useful things from you. When I came here, in the first day, I admit I was a bit tense, thinking the others will make fun of me for the way I speak in public, in English. Due to you now I can say that I succeeded in overcoming my fear of speaking in public, thanks to your interactive games that you coordinated.

I had the chance to use the knowledge that I already had and I managed to learn more and more as the hours passed. You are close to my heart, thank you!

Yours faithfully,

Lavinia S.

“I came back with pleasure to participate at my second course with you and I encountered the same familiar and warming atmosphere. I found out new things, I remembered what I forgot, and now, at the end, I feel the same feeling of “I wish it won’t be over”.

I gained new friendships, which with certainty will continue outside the course and I hope we will hear again soon with good news about a certain “Golden Call”.

Thank you for all.”

“English for cabin crew was over my expectations. I thought I will learn basic informations about the big airline companies and the aviation vocabulary, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had to face clear, concise situations.

In the first day I barely said 3 lines about me, and half wrong, and when I arrived home, I opened my notebook and I started to do my “homework”, self presentation…I wrote a half of a page. I loved it so much and I consider that after these 3 intense days I remained with a big baggage of information. Many appreciations to our trainer and I will love to come back after a few months, to surprise you in the middle of a course and to tell you how I got my wings.

Thank you so much girls, wish you great success in the future! “

“Today, 22.05.2016, the last day a How to be Cabin Crew, I realized that my participation at the English for Cabin Crew course was an excellent idea.

I always had financial and moral support from my mom, but this one was the only thing I chose to do without her “approval”. She helps me financially, but doesn’t want to accept that my life will be in danger flying so much.

At How to be Cabin Crew I felt like in a family. Every day I learned new things.

I considered myself hopeless. With your help and support, I can now say I leave from here happy, impatient and ready for a cabin crew interview.

Thank you,

Ps: #youaretrulyofferingwings  “

How was it at our first How to be Cabin Crew course in Rome

I came back home from Rome after almost a week in which I fell in love with the city, with pistachio gelato and with our lovely students that were a big part of our experience in Rome. We had a great connection with them from the beginning and during the whole course, that in a short period of time they become extremely dear to us (I admit, it happens very often to me at our courses)

When we landed back in Bucharest, I realized with Georgiana that, beside our luggage, we came back home with a lot of good energy, new ideas and a life experience witch made us love our work.

After this first course held in Rome, I know that this city will become like a second home very soon. In the next months, How to be Cabin Crew wants to extend more and more in Italy, the country in which we will start to organize courses very often. We plan to launch a permanent preparation center in Rome, like we did last year in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. But about that we will discuss in the following months.

At our first How to be Cabin Crew course in Rome, we had students from Italy, Belgium and Switzerland. For 2 days, our students assimilated extremely useful information about what it means a successful interview, they learned very much through practice (practicing the task from the interview and lots of exercising  to highlight their creativity and team spirit), they improved their English language and learned to have confidence in themselves when they are going to an interview.

In the end, to me, as a trainer, and to them also, was very difficult to say goodbye so soon (I think we did it like 4 times before we actually left); we promised to meet again very soon, and till then, to keep in touch online. Once again, How to be Cabin Crew helped dreams come true, built beautiful friendships and offered wings all over the world.

How was our first How to be Cabin Crew course in Rome?

It was incredible, this will be the answer. Incredible because I never could imagine that we will get these far, incredible because so many people from all over the world are watching us, read us and choose to prepare with us, incredible because we managed to make such a big step forward and we won this bet to start making courses all over Europe.

And you know why it is incredible? Because of our hard working team which works every day to make How to be Cabin Crew better day by day. Because of Georgiana, Nicoleta, Cristina, Aida, and recently Ana, with whom I know I can move mountains.
