When looking for a flight attendant position be smart about it. Find the right carrier for your needs. I chose UA
because they had a huge international network and international domiciles. I also chose UA
because at the time their stock price was around 100/share and they were the most profitable airline in the world. (So much for that eh?!)
My suggestion is to finish school, get some more "life experience" under your belt and apply in a couple of years at a legacy carrier and fly all sorts of planes to all sorts of destinations.
The competition is very fierce and you've better look like thier ideal candidate when you go to the interview! When I applied at UA
there were 35,000 applicants and I was one of 1,200 hired that year. Those that made it were those who took the job seriously, looked at it like a profession instead of a job, and those who looked the part. You also must be proportional to weight and height and can't exceed 6'2" at UA
Get your degree, it will give you an edge over your competition when you apply!
I hear rumors UA
will be hiring in late 2006, keep your fingers crossed!
The debate continues... Starwood or Hyatt... which is better
