Okay, well, my dream of living at 35,000 ft. is in the beginning stage of becoming a reality. Talked with inflight recuiting with Continental today, actually several times, and they are flying me to IAH for an initial interview mid October.
I have previous work experience in Governmental Relations, Public Relations, and Customer Service, along with several internships done throughout college. I hold my degree in Liberal Studies with a focus on Business Administrative Leadership/PR. I also speak fairly fluent French and fundamental Mandarin Chinese.
The position is with Continental Mainline operations based at EWR.
My questions are:
1. What to expect at the interview
2. How to better prepare myself for the interview
3. If I acquire set position, I will need to move to the NYC area. How do F/A's go about getting a place with other F/A's?
4. How does seniority work, and how do I go about getting routes that I'd like? (International routes in particular).
5. Finally, I fear that I will be making less money with CO than I do at my current job, but it's been my dream to work in the airline industry, and it could possibly open doors as far as my career goes. So do I take the conservative approach and keep my current job, or do I take a risk to get out of Oklahoma and fly for a good part of my life?
