Hi,

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?

Thanks!

Michael

Swissair just cancelled their Sabena joint program, but applicants were all told they were unsuccessful (bad PR if Swissair admits programs are being cut)!

I think you at least need to have basic Chinese language skills. don't know if you need to be brilliant at it though?

Does anyone have any info regarding the pay, work conditions etc at this programme? I would very much like to know.

Of course, there are a lot of english speaking airlines arround, but I couldn't find so extensive information about junior management programmes as on CX's site.

By the way, is Virgin offering something like that?

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  Big grin

Many thanks in advance.

Sorry, I posted this earlier in error under another thread!!

I will be going to Greece soon and will pass through Athens.

As I have not been to the new airport before, can someone help with some tips on where best to spot / photograph? I believe that there is an observation deck.

Many thanks in advance.

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.
