It’s an amazing life isn’t it?
Please let me introduce you to Charlotte. Just like you, Charlotte dreamed of being cabin crew.
She longed to walk through the airport, head held high, knowing others were looking on and wishing they could be her. She had many, many destinations she dreamed of visiting- New York, Sydney, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong- she could go on and on. And imagine getting the opportunity to relax on the sun-kissed beaches of the Maldives or the Seychelles. To say nothing of living in Dubai- one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world!Cara followed many current Emirates cabin crew on Instagram and she knew this was the job for her. But, how could she get this job?
She has now attended three Emirates open days and keeps being rejected.
She waits in line, dressed to impressed and always hands her CV over with a very big smile.
Yet, time and time again, her name never appears on the list of candidates being invited to an assessment day.
What is Charlotte doing wrong?
Chances are the problems lie with her CV and these are the most common mistakes candidates
1.The CV is not written specifically for the airline they are applying for
2. The CV does not start with a personal statement, that draws in the recruiter and encourages them to keep reading
3. The CV is full of stuff that is completely irrelevant to the job of cabin crew
That’s the thing about wanting to become cabin crew…
Competition to be cabin crew is fierce!
In fact, 97% of applicants will be unsuccessful! Yep, you read that right. For every hundred applicants, 3 will be successful.
Woah- that is terrible odds isn’t it?
It sure is!
So, you need to be able to stand-out from the crowd. Now, you might think this is impossible. After all, the odds are hardly in your favour.
But here’s the thing
It’s NOT impossible if you have help on your side.
So, what could Charlotte have done differently?
✓She could have got all the good stuff right up the top of her CV to make sure the recruiter wanted to keep reading
✓ She could have made sure that she had matched her skills to what the airline was looking for
✓ She could have made sure that there was nothing irrelevant on her CV and if there was, to remove it
✓ She should have used her CV to tell her story
So, Charlotte knew she had to do something different next time.
Like many others in the same situation, Cara turned to Google for help! She joined a few Facebook groups but quickly realised they were full of people like herself searching for advice. The problem was, even though others were trying to be helpful, they simply didn’t know enough to be able to help.
And everyone contradicted everyone else!
Feeling totally confused, Cara headed back to Google, this time looking for a cabin crew recruitment expert.
Did Cara find a cabin crew recruitment expert?
She absolutely did! She came across Pauline Park and was impressed at her credentials. As well as having worked in the aviation industry, Pauline had a master’s degree in Tourism Studies and was a fully-qualified teacher. She has been teaching aviation and recruitment for over 20 years.
The more Pauline learned about travel recruitment, the more interested she became, and this quickly became her passion! In fact, over the years she has helped 1000s of her students gain employment in the travel industry.
As the online world (and her reputation!) grew she was constantly being asked to help people with cabin crew recruitment. And, no wonder as this stuff is hard!
So, she set out to apply for every cabin crew job she sees (and she still does!). Pauline would be proud to tell you that she has a 100% success rate in being invited to assessment days, but then she should be good at this stuff- it's her job!
Pauline has put together a CV Review program, where she advises candidates on their own CV and suggests improvements to it to make sure it reflects exactly what their dream airline were looking for.
Charlotte was so impressed, particularly when she realised Pauline had been 100% successful in applying for cabin crew jobs.
She obviously really knew her stuff.
So, she signed up for Pauline’s CV Review.
So, let’s hear from Pauline…
"The first thing I did was have a look at Charlotte’s CV and, I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t great!
I see this ALL THE TIME!
People have really useful and relevant skills which are perfect for the role of cabin crew, but you have to look really, really hard to get to these skills!
Now, an airline recruiter will be looking at literally hundreds of CV's every single day, so you know they won't spend long looking at your CV. You'll be lucky if they spend 10 seconds looking at it!
Another thing I noticed is how much Charlotte down-played herself on her CV.
Remember, your CV is a sales document and the thing you are selling is yourself, so now is not a time to play down your strengths!
You may not feel particularly comfortable in selling yourself like this, but remember that competition is FIERCE and everyone else will be doing their best to shout: “pick me, pick me!”, so you need to get in on the act as well.
I check over 100 CVs EVERY DAY and I can honestly say, hand on heart, that most of the people sending me their CVs DO HAVE THE SKILLS to become CABIN CREW
However, I can also honestly say that less than 3% of CVs are good enough to be invited through to the next stage of the assessment day.
So, yep, you’ve read that right- 97 out of every 100 CVs I read are NOT GOOD ENOUGH!
Yet, I’ve just said that nearly every CV I read, the candidate has the skills to do the job.
Surely, I’m contradicting myself?
Not at all!
The problem is that YOU are good enough to get the job.
However, your CV is NOT good enough to get the job!
The SINGLE most useful piece of advice I can give anyone is to TAILOR your CV to what airlines are looking for.
It really isn’t enough to think to yourself- OK, I’ve got a CV from school/ college/ wherever- THAT WILL DO!
I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that WON’T DO!
It’s NOT impossible and I know what will make a candidate successful.
And I’m willing to look at your CV and tell you how to give it the “wow” factor!
So, what’s included in the CV Review?
Pauline is now prepared to show you behind the curtain to reveal how to make sure your CV gets you invited to an assessment day.
So, what does Pauline do?

See what some of our students (and now Emirates cabin crew!) have to say:
Pauline helped with my CV and I am now undertaking my training to become cabin crew for Emirates here in Dubai. What more needs to be said? Pauline’s CV works, and I am proof! Don’t even think about it. It’s the best decision I ever made.Robyn Washington
I came across Pauline's work when I began my research into how to start with applying for Emirates cabin crew! Honestly, using Pauline’s resources is the best decision I could've made 😊 I didn't know where to start with my CV so with Pauline’s help, had it all revamped to suit cabin crew life! I got my final approval from Emirates yesterday and I leave for Dubai in a month! 😊 If you want this as bad as I did, then definitely consider this wonderful lady for support. My friends ask 'how did you do it?!' or 'you're so lucky!' but so much work has to go into it if you want it that badly and without Pauline's help, I don't know if I could have! Thanks again Pauline for all your help and support 😊Kayleigh Metcalfe
When applying, your CV needs to be exactly what Emirates are looking for! At the open day you have a minute or two to sell yourself while the recruiter looks over your CV. Pauline explained exactly how to write the perfect CV that the recruiters are looking for. I believe that if you are confident with your CV, photos and overall appearance for the open day, you will have the confidence you need to pass the rest of the recruitment process and I recommend Pauline to ALL aspiring cabin crew who dream of work for Emirates, as she assists you in gaining that vital confidence you need! Pauline, thank you again for all your assistance! I am beyond excited to start my new career with one of the world’s leading airlines!”Adrian Wheatland- Low

Still not sure that a CV review is for you?
We get it! After all, you’ve never met us before and here we are asking for your money and our CV Review could be rubbish!
Remember we guarantee 100% satisfaction. If Pauline can't improve your CV we'll refund you straight away with no questions asked.
But we think it offers incredible value for money.
It never fails to amaze us, some of the crazy things people spend their money on to become Emirates cabin crew.
In fact, a girl called Paola contacted Pauline for some help a few months ago. She was desperate to become cabin crew with Emirates and flew all the way from Buenos Aires in Argentina, to Madrid in Spain (yes, you did read that right!) to attend an open day.
She really hoped that the recruiters would be so impressed that she had flown over 6,000 miles to attend. They weren’t, and Luisa was on her way back to Buenos Aires with nothing to show for it (well, except for a very large credit card bill ☹)
What else do people waste money on when applying to be cabin crew?
- Shoes! A day doesn’t go past when someone posts in the Departure Lounge asking what height of shoes you should wear or how pointy the toes should be!
-Lipstick! Oh my goodness, how many emails do we receive here at Mondrago, asking what colour lipstick they should be wearing on their open day?
-Professional photos. Wow, these cost a lot of money and you don’t need to get them done professionally. You can simply stand in front of a plain wall and save yourself loads of cash!
-Travelling to and from the open day. Most people travel (often great distances) to get to an open day and this doesn’t come cheap.
-In fact, we did a survey a while back in the Departure Lounge, our free Facebook group, and asked people how much people spent preparing for and attending an Emirates open day.
The average amount spent was a staggering $300!
And, of the 100 people surveyed, only 9 had made it to an assessment day!
So, that’s a lot of wasted cash!
What would you be better spending your money on?
Well, at the risk of sounding obvious, we are going to say our CV Review.
It’s only $49 and you get a lot of bang for your buck!
Why do we think it’s well worth the money?
♥ Pauline has been teaching recruitment for over 20 years, so really does know her stuff. She has been invited to an assessment day for EVERY SINGLE cabin crew job she has ever applied for and Emirates is no exception to this.
♥ Her success rate in applying for cabin crew jobs is 100%
♥ She intuitively understands what airline recruiters are looking for. She can take your CV and identify the skills that you have that she knows airlines are looking for. She can show you how to showcase your talents, so recruiters can’t fail to be impressed.
♥ She knows what recruiters hate to see on CV’s, so if she sees something she knows they won’t like, she’ll tell you to get rid of it.
♥ Her feedback is incredibly detailed AND it’s specific to your dream airline.
♥ She will also give you all the relevant keywords and phrases for your dream airline, so you can sprinkle them liberally throughout your CV and turn yourself into an airline’s dream candidate.
♥ If anything is missing on your CV, Pauline will be sure to tell you!
♥ She will also give you a FREE copy of her CV guide, which includes the actual CV she used to apply to Emirates - and get an invite to an assessment day to!
You’d be mad not to!
Remember, getting a job as cabin crew is incredibly difficult. 97% of all of those applying will be unsuccessful.
It’s a really tough process and the more prepared you are, the better.
So why not make an investment in your future?
We GUARANTEE it will be a whole lot more successful than a new red lipstick!
So, come on, what are you waiting for?
Don’t you want to be in the 3% of applicants who are successful?
Of course you do!
And you KNOW a CV Review is the way to do it!
Wondering what happened to Charlotte? Well, wonder no more as she’s currently out in Dubai undertaking her training…
Why not buy a CV Review and join Charlotte out in Dubai?
I was a bit worried about buying How to Become Emirates cabin crew. I’d been a member of Pauline’s Departure Lounge for a while and I knew how helpful she was, but I was still pretty nervous typing in my credit card number. I needn’t have been! How to Become Emirates cabin crew was so much more than I’d imagined. Pauline has managed to include absolutely everything you need to know. It’s a bit overwhelming at first, just how much you need to know, but if you take it step-by-step then you’ll be fine. Well, that’s what I did and here I am out in Dubai, undertaking my training. And I thought the recruitment process was difficult lolYendi Hermoza
