Like most disciplines, solid interviewing skills are developed through repetition and evaluation for gatecrashing those air hostess job interviews.
The following practice techniques are very effective ways to prepare for your interviews.
Live Session: By far, the most economical way to practice interviewing is to have a friend or family member play the part of an interviewer. Ideally, you should set up a part of your home to resemble the interviewing environment - perhaps an office with a desk, so you can incorporate as much realism as possible into the interview practice session. The "interviewer" should ask you the questions provided in the Interview Questions section and critique your responses, body language, etc. If you are preparing for an open interview, practice your answers in front of a large group of friends or family members and ask for their feedback.
Tape-recorded Session: The advantage of using an audio cassette recorder is that you do not need anyone else to help you. You can dictate your responses to each question and then play them back for analysis. Be particularly attentive to your use of what we call "useless words," such as "You know," "Ya know," "like," etc. These words have no place in an interview setting. A variation is to record the interview with a friend asking the questions. Here again, you can benefit from someone else's feedback.
Videotaped Session: This is the most effective form of interview practice that is used by many employment consulting firms, but if you own a camcorder, you can achieve the same results for a lot less money. To be most effective, you should have another individual acting as the interviewer. You should create an interview "set" and go through all the motions you would during an actual interview, from the introduction to the final handshake. The results of your videotaped interview can be very surprising. Very often, you will notice personal negative habits that you were perhaps never aware of. You should repeatedly tape the session until you are satisfied with your performance. Then, the actual interview should be a lot easier.
In the Choosing an Airline section, we discuss how important it is for you to thoroughly research every airline that interests you. Not only will this help you decide which airline you would most like to work for, but it will help you immensely during the interview process. The more you know about a specific company, the more prepared you will be to not only answer the interviewer's questions, but you will be able to ask your own, equally intelligent, questions.
Knowing answers to the following questions will give you a competitive advantage over fellow applicants.
What is the airline's category?
How large is the airline relative to its competitors within the category?
What are the names of the senior management team?
What was the airline's total annual operating revenue for the previous year?
What is the airline's growth rate with respect to revenue?
What is the airline's employee growth rate?
How many employees does the airline have?
How many air hostesses does the airline have?
What equipment does the airline fly?
What is the primary route structure?
How many destinations does the airline fly to?
