More than just achieving the physical requirements and qualifications to be a flight attendant, your confidence level also plays a huge role. Its not only about having a pretty or good looking face, its also about how confident you project yourself to your interviewers and recruiters. I have met a lot of cabin crew aspirants who are physical blessed and who are really good looking but have failed the application or recruitment process.
The reason? Lack of confidence!
These may include lack of self confidence, the way they project themselves, and the way they answer. But wait, being too over-confident is also a no-no!
So in the first place, why is confidence important? As flight attendants, you will be playing a major role in ensuring the safety and security of passengers and you have to show them that you know what you are doing and saying. Passengers will entrust their lives to you so you have to ensure them that you are dependable, and the way to show it is to show you are confident on your capabilities and in yourself.
Hence, the reason why having that self-confidence will play a major role in deciding whether you will make it as a cabin crew or not.
So how do you achieve this? Personally, I would first say believe in yourself. I do not see any other way on how you can gain this self confidence without believing in yourself. Believe in your capabilities, believe that you are meant for the job as a flight attendant. Second, have faith in yourself. Have faith that you can overcome all obstacles to become a cabin crew.
The third and the rest of the steps will be discussed on January 25 at the "The Journey Begins: A 5-Pillar Conference" happening at the Savoy Hotel, Newport Manila.
Last but not least, be confident that you have the capability to be a flight attendant, to be part of the chosen few, and to carry on the responsibilities that go with wearing a uniform.
Just a reminder though. Confidence is not everything in becoming a cabin crew, there are so much more, which you will learn on January 25 at the "The Journey Begins" conference. Though confidence plays a major role, there are other things you need to know too.
While being confident in yourself is important, you have to be able to deliver and go beyond the standard expectations as flight attendants. So apart from being confident, make sure you can deliver also.
Good luck future flight attendant!
