One of the best ways to practice if you want to know how to become a flight attendant is to simulate the interview process. At The Travel Academy, mock open houses and interviews are among the most important training activities our students complete. Our 120-Hour students completed one today. Here is some information that instructors give to all of our students. Enjoy!
What is an Open House?
An open house is a general information session about a specific airline and position. Most sessions are currently extended to qualified applicants (invited). These sessions require you to first submit an application and 10 year history in order to pre-qualify. Other sessions are open to the public (uninvited). These dates are typically published on the airline’s website.
How Do I Prepare?
First, prepare to speak in front of a large audience (50-400 people). Many airlines will have you read a boarding announcement in front of the group. You will typically be competing for just 20-35 openings. Next, research the airline and know why you want to work for the company along with why you would be the best candidate for the position. You MUST “wow” the recruiters if you want an individual interview! Follow the Image Standards for more tips on how to dress for interviews.
