What does a successful cabin crew CV look like

Preparing a good cabin crew CV can be the toughest challenge for most young adults. Most recruiters in the airline industry recruiting cabin crew roles spend no more than 10 seconds scanning each CV before either putting it in the 'Yes' pile or in the bin.  It does seem harsh but that is indeed reality.  We are here to help you.

Length of CV

Keep it to no more than two pages of an A4 sheet.  Keep it concise and do not provide too much details.  You have the interview to do just that.

Be specific

Tailor your CV for each cabin crew role you apply to.  The reason is every airline has nuances to the cabin crew role.  Use the job description supplied by the airline recruitment portal to work out precisely what skills you should point out to them.  This is more than likely to make your CV stand out.

Personal statement

At the start of your CV, always use a personal statement to explain why you are the best person for the cabin crew role.  Remember not to share or show details of your CV to your peers.  If you start discussing format and your presentation online with fellow peers, you will lessen your own chance of getting the role.

Gaps in your employment

Don't leave gaps in your CV.  Explain why you have been out of work for certain periods and what you have been doing.  If you have taken time to learn soft skills like communication, team work, helping others - mention it!  

Keep your CV up-to-date

You must always keep your CV up-to-date.  You can email us to review and help you to do this.  

Errors on CV

With massive applications for cabin crew roles, do not give recruiters a chance to dismiss your application all because you made typo or grammatical errors.

Leave lots of white space

Recruiters dislike seeing a CV where there are many columns on a single page CV with all the information everywhere filling-up the full page.  trust me, it's not easy on the eye, it's like reading the telephone directory, and this goes into the pile for the bin.

Dates of employment

Remember to tell the truth about employers you work for and the employment dates.  These are checked-out as part of HR background checks and I do not mean references here.

Submitting your CV online through the airline recruitment portal

Remember to check the CV at least 6 times before you press SEND.  

Remember, we review and update CV and application pictures for candidates applying for cabin crew roles and have achieved a high percentage of first attempt passes!  A small investment here saves you repeating the whole process again and again. Do it once and get it right.  Getting to be a cabin crew is not difficult.  You just need the right CV and a strong interview technique.  We are here to help you achieve both and fulfil your dream in the shortest time.
