Looking for a cabin crew job can often be a really difficult task. It takes time for your luck to shine and your hard work to bring results. This does not mean you should stop believing in yourself or that you will never get a job. There will be a time when you get an interview for and you should recognise that this is a major achievement.
Failing at an airline interview means that you will not be able to re-apply to that comnpany for 6 months!
The importance of planning and preparing for the interview cannot be stressed enough, but still people make mistakes that result in interview failure and I am going to talk about four things that you should absolutely avoid during the interview session.
1) Freeze during the session:
Many candidates have an amazing job profile as well as decent communication skills. However, when they arrive at the interview, it probably is not their day or they just get lost in the moment. Make sure you have the backup plan arranged in case you freeze up during the interview..
2) Try to be dominating:
Your interviewer is experienced and you should always respect that. Never try to dominate them by being overly aggressive, talkative or over confident about anything. The moment you do that, your interviewer will start judging you.
3) Being too casual or sloppy:
The worst thing you can do during an interview is to show that you are not serious about it or the job. Never leave an impression that you do not want the job or you are taking it too lightly.
4) Talk negatively about the previous company or the company you are at:
You might not like some policies of the company you are applying for, but do not voice those opinions like you are coming there to change. Always be diplomatic and pleasant in your tone. If you have previously worked somewhere, do not talk negatively about that company.
