Help with your CV
Airlines receive hundreds to thousands of applications and CV's every year. As well as outlining your education and work experience to date, your CV is your tool to sell your personality and qualities. Think of it as your own personal advertising campaign to sell your ability to do the job you are applying for.
Content to be included in your CV
g Personal Details, which should include details of your age, passport, marital status and ability to drive
g A personal profile, outlining your key qualities, skills and career objective
g Additional Training (include here details of the cabin crew ticket diploma course
g At least 5 years work experience, detailing any gap years you may have had
g Hobbies, interests and any charity work you may be involved with
Your CV layout
CV's should be simply laid out over no more than two pages. Check the accuracy of your grammar and spelling. Watch out for American spelling checks on your PC they can catch you out.
Airlines like easy to read CV's that are easy to navigate around. Using relevant headings, short paragraphs and bullet points can all help to create an eye catching CV. Airlines typically don't read everything on your CV and their first glance could only be a few seconds. An over complicated CV may not get a second chance.
Graphics and gimmicks should be avoid and using tables and charts can make a CV look cluttered. Overall try to use a consistent, professional style and don't overdo the underlining or capital letters!
