I was just surfing througth CX's career-section on their website. Ther were some information about a management trainee programme, which sounds very interesting to me. The only thing is - you need to speak fluently cantonese...
Does somebody know, whether they also take students, who doesn's speak Chinese?
Are there other airlines arround, who are offering similar programms for junior management positions?

The basic salary is about HK$15-16K/month plus a housing allowance for the overseas trainees. I think the programme is a 3 year trainee course with two of the 3 years posted overseas, usually as an assistant to a Country mgr or something like that.
I'm not sure what the salary gets up to eventually but the top management of CX nearly all came out of this programme I think!
I'm sure the pilots would have a few questions about the quality of this mgt trainee programme in the past

Qantas, Ansett and air New Zealand all used to have graduate recruitment programs...until this year. Ansett are not running PROPEL this year (despite still advertising it on their website). Air NZ still advertise their management trainee program but haven't updated it for 2001. Qantas advertised and promoted their graduate program heavily this year at university careers fairs and the like and then withdrew their generalist prgram (after receiving applications...but anyway). All three say they intend to reintroduce them but given current dramas who knows...
As for CX I have been told their program is very good.
Several US airlines also run grad programs I believe as do BA.
