SIA cabin crew interview in Singapore (Hyatt Grand

We can just imagine the long queue at Hyatt Grand this morning. Many in the queue are vying for the posts of flight attendant with Singapore Airlines. Registration for the walk in interview started at 9 am. By 11am I would imagine with the hundreds of cabin crew hopefuls registered, SIA would closed the registration. Most would be asked (the late comers) to go to STC for their interviews on another day.
No doubt, at the end of today's interview over 90 of these wannabes would be disappointed because they have not been selected for the job.
There are many so called "teachers"or  "experts" out there conducting courses or selling guides teaching the wannabes how to pass the interview.
I happened to read one of the guides which taught the wannabes the questions the interviewers  would ask them and how to answer them. This "expert" claimed that the correct answers must be provided otherwise they will fail the interview. In this guide, there were many ready answers to the expected questions that may be asked.
It is amazing how many of the wannabes bought that guide,believing it could be of great help. Sadly, at the end of the day,many who purchased this type of guide failed miserably.
It's not the correct answers the interviewers are looking for. It's the way the answers are given,the process and the likability factors involved that the interviewers are looking out for. This is not a NASA scientist job where the applicant must give the exact and accurate answers. With cabin crew, if you tell the interviewers the answer of  1+1= 4 you may still secure the job compared to one who gives the correct answer of 2 but lacking in humility and good attitude.
So you see what the interviewers are going for are people with ability to serve others with humility and graciousness. They are looking for simple folks who could demonstrate good mannerism couple with some EQ.
The guides people are selling in the blogger sphere are misleading to say the least. But if you really wanna buy those guides my suggestion is to look at their credentials and past experiences. Moreover if one who is selling is hiding his or her identity (being anonymous) my suggestion is you should cast some doubt on the product.
If I have the time, one of these days I would come out with a comprehensive guide that will help many people achieve their dreams of becoming cabin crew for free. Stay tune ............

BT should have a paypal donate button. even if the guid is for free, we should still reward those ppl for sharing their experiences n effort for writing it so that you can be a cc.
