Emirates is one of the most sought after airlines for many cabin crew/applicants.There were a lot of postings and guide on becoming one. But the process was almost impossible to get through. Nevertheless, with the dream of making the world my home, I pursued. I applied online at the beginning of July and few days after, I got an invitation that says I was shortlisted to attend to their AD in Australia. I was so thrilled! The email instructed me to confirm back with them on which AD event I'm attending too and I did - to the Sydney AD on the 27 July . Just like that my day was made.
I got up really early on the d-day, getting everything prep and ready to go! I was the first to reach there so I took my own sweet time and did some touch up here and there. Its always better to be early than to be late! Nevertheless, more crowds start to come and the process begin..
The very first thing; we were asked to fill a form (given by them) followed by CV/photo and registration with the RO (recruiting officer). We were given numbers as we do this, and this number will be your identity throughout the assessment process. Mine was #3. There was a long queue to do this, but I get there rather early so I managed to be seated quite early. Then after, we were all presented on slides about Dubai, Emirates and just the overall environment there. The videos shown were all brand new and very well put. With that, our eagerness to join the EK family heightened. There was a brief Q/A session after that the RO announced for us to leave the room while she deliberate on who make the first cut. Thats right, the open-day kind of stage was held even though mine was an invite-only day, perhaps its due to the bigger turnout.
15mins later, she came out of the room and pasted a giant piece of paper with numbers on those people who make the cut in front of a door. I was extremely nervous, it would be sucha shame to go home on such early stage. First impression plays critical role on this round! I paced my way there and I saw it! My number was there! I'm relieved but can't be too happy yet as this is only the beginning next up is the actual beginning of the assessment rounds. However, about half the crowd was eliminated on this round.
