After graduating from University, I didn’t think I’d be in a slump for long but I was.

Every catch-up session with my friends would begin with the same old “What are you doing now?

Followed by a “Don’t worry, you’ll be able to get a full-time job soon” when I replied that I was job hunting.

Yes, getting a job these days doesn’t come easy. But maybe it is with the right timing, skills, luck and a little connection.

If you’re still undecided on what to do with life and want to earn money fast, your best bet would be to work as a cabin crew, like most of my friends.

Lucky for you, Singapore Airlines is hiring from now to 24 March 2019!

Working as an air steward(ess) seems prestigious and I always aspired to be as cool as them from young. But reality hurts and I was (still am) 1cm away from meeting their height requirement.

So if you are:

  • A Singapore citizen
  • 18 years old and above
  • Height of at least 158cm for females, and 165cm for males
  • Fluent in English

…congratulations, you’ve got one foot in the door of interview sessions with Singapore Airlines (SIA) which will be held in March and April 2019.

Singapore Airlines

Founded 47 years ago in 1972, Singapore Airlines has been the pride of Singapore and has a track record of providing exceptional service.

Crowned as the World’s Best Airline in 2018, SIA has won infinite awards since 2000.

They received their most recent accolade last year from Business Traveller (UK), Condé Nast Traveler (USA) and Reader’s Digest (Australia) for undoubtedly coming in first for providing the best of best – service quality, service crew and Airline.

Cabin Crew

When you think of SIA the Singapore Girl donned in the iconic sarong kebaya uniform, which we’ve talked about previously, instantly comes to mind.

Downside

Behind the glitz and glamour, being a cabin crew is harder than it seems. Other than pacifying nasty travellers (though not always), you’d have to take turns cleaning the toilet on-board, as well as non-stop studying and attend training early in the morning.

As this is a shift-based job, it is uncommon to be called to work at the eleventh hour and miss out on special occasions like birthdays and weddings.

According to a netizen by the name of yatraa who used to work at SIA, the monetary benefit is definitely much better than your regular office job, explaining why it’s one of the “best jobs for a fresh grad”.

Benefits

According to their website, successful graduates can receive a monthly estimate of S$4,500 to S$5,000, subjected to flying hours and patterns of course.

In addition, you will secure a 5-year contract (which may be extended if you perform well), free travel annually to any SIA destination and receive travel discounts at times.

Other perks include attractive annual leave, medical and dental treatment scheme, and extensive training programmes.

Think you have what it takes? Head over to their site to try your shot at becoming the next Singapore Girl or Boy.

Note: Online applications close on 23 March 2019.

Don’t worry you won’t have to accede to any unreasonable customer’s request like cleaning their bottom.
