Statistically speaking, it is easier to get into Harvard than it is to get a job as a Delta flight attendant.
Even though the competition is stiff, there are still ways for an aspiring flight attendant to increase their odds of receiving a job offer.
The Flight Attendant Career Workshop, taught by Abbie Unger, is coming to the Fairfield Inn and Suites, Charleston Airport, June 7 at 10:30 a.m. This interactive workshop will give attendees the tools and knowledge needed to secure a job as a flight attendant. The workshop will cover everything from where to apply, to resumes writing, how to dress for an interview and what life as a flight attendant is really like. The workshop is $147 and includes a full day of instruction. Scholarships are available.
Abbie Unger has made insider tips available in a way that is easily accessible. Her first book, Looking Skyward: Turn Your Flight Attendant Dreams into Reality, has made it to the top of the Amazon bestseller list in Job Hunting and Aviation.
“A flight attendant interview is unique,” Abbie explains. “What makes it different is what the recruiters are looking for. Most jobs focus on your past performance, but a flight attendant interview focuses on life experience and natural personality traits.”
The focus on a winning smile and charming personality isn't the only thing that makes the interview different. Up to a hundred applicants are interviewed in a group setting and observed from the moment they enter the building. They are asked to share a great customer service experience while standing in front of the group, participate in a group activity and may even be required to reach up to a certain height and fit into the harness of a jumpseat.
As intense as this sounds, to be invited to a group interview requires successfully passing two or three other phone or video interviews.
Abbie Unger, a former flight attendant and Charleston native, has helped hundreds of hopefuls land their dream job through books, webinars, and one on one career coaching. Up until now, her services have been available online, but with the national tour, kicking off in Charleston and making stops across the U.S., that is changing. Now her instruction and coaching can make an even greater impact in the lives of aspiring flight attendants.
