Personal Apperance 如何打造EK面试形象
During the first few minutes of an interview, the recruiters make certain judgements about your character and work style based on your dress, demeanour and body language.
As cabin crew, you will be the face of the airline and your standards of presentation should therefore be very high. The airline wants to feel confident that you will present a polished, friendly and conservative image.
Business attire is the dress code. Choose something that is well tailored and doesn’t crease easily. A knee length skirt is the requirement.
Don’t be afraid to introduce colour into your outfit...most applicants will wear black, grey and navy blue and so by wearing another colour such as cream, pale pink or pale blue, you will instantly stand out from the crowd.
Even in summer months it is critical that you wear tights or stockings in order to create a sophisticated image.
Wear conservative court shoes that are well polished and smart looking – no scuffed edges or tatty heels.
Makeup is usually part and parcel with the cabin crew uniform, so wear plenty whilst still looking as natural as possible. Don’t go extreme but emphasise your cheeks, lips and eyes. It’s amazing what a bit of lipstick and blusher can do!
Your hair should be neat, freshly washed and well groomed. If you have long hair, don’t feel you are required to wear it up for the interview. If the recruiters want to see how you look with your hair put up, they will ask you to sweep it back. If you do wear your hair up, make sure it is neat and tidy.
If you have coloured or bleached hair, make sure it looks natural...no root regrowth or funky/abnormal colours.
HANDS AND NAILS 手和指甲
Ensure that your nails are tidy and not too long. Nail polish should be conservative and match in colour. Avoid charms, glitter and multicoloured polish.
Choose something that is of good quality and well tailored. Select a shirt that looks crisp, clean and smart. Try to avoid any fabrics that crease easily... wear a tie that portrays your personality yet is suitable for the formal occasion.
Ensure shoes are clean, tidy and well polished.
Your hair should be well styled and freshly washed. Coloured or bleached hair should be natural looking with no root regrowth. Avoid outrageous colours or styles.
FACIAL HAIR 胡子
Male cabin crew are not normally permitted to have beards so it is recommended that you attend the interview cleanly shaven. If you must have facial hair, it must be closely trimmed.
HANDS AND NAILS 手和指甲
Ensure that your nails are tidy and short – not bitten.
FEMALES AND MALES
If you choose to wear perfume/cologne, select a light scent and wear it sparingly.
JEWELLERY/BODY PIERCINGS 珠宝/身体穿孔
Jewellery should be minimal and conservative. Wear no more than one ring per hand. Avoid cloth or rope bracelets and thumb rings.
Facial piercings are not acceptable – if you do have these, remove them before your interview.
Visible tattoos are not acceptable. If you do have them, cover them up if possible.
Your poise should make you appear confident but welcoming, so walk and stand tall and retain open gestures.
Most importantly you must smile, thus giving the impression that you are friendly and welcoming.
By following the above guidance, you will be maximising your opportunity for success...
NOTE: it's a mistaken belief that airlines only seek cabin crew who look like supermodels. They are looking for the whole package... behaviour, body language and necessary skills/qualifications.
