Always remember that the number of rejections you have been through will not define whether you will make it as a cabin crew or not. What will settle the score is how you will rise from every rejection and turn-down. We have featured a lot of stories of present cabin crew who went through multiple rejections before arriving to where they presently are, and indeed, it took them a lot of hard work, dedication, and commitment.
Their stories will prove that despite the number of rejections and turn downs one goes through, there is always a chance to make it and what's important here is how we rise back.
Let me tell you that this is not only about rising back, but also about how we respond to these down falls. Do we respond in a positive manner where we take these rejections as an opportunity to be better, or do we simply blame others for our failures to achieve our goal.
Rising back is not only about trying and trying again. When you encounter rejections during your attempts to be a flight attendant, learn to stop and reflect where you went wrong. If you were not told as to why you did not make it, then just reflect and look for areas of improvement. Was it because you did not smile much? Was it because maybe the recruiters did not like your answers? There can indeed be so much reasons, hence, the best way is to really reflect back and improve what you feel needs to be fixed. Go check out our write-ups, and go ask present cabin crew members to assess you. Again, how you respond to these challenges will dictate how you will rise back.
Do not give-up and keep trying. For as long as there is room for improvement, you have that chance. It does not matter how many rejections you have faced. There is no such thing as "Not less than 5 previous rejections" in an airlines list of qualifications.
So will you rise back as an improved version of your old self?
