Interviews have always been nerve wracking experiences, however, the new style of behavioural questioning has made the final cabin crew interview a particularly gruelling process. Questions are fired in a way that actually keeps candidates from knowing what to say in response, and yet the recruiters are looking for quick and well-prepared answers. Under this pressure, candidates are often thrown off guard and, information that would never otherwise be revealed, is openly volunteered as they struggle to come up with appropriate answers on demand. And, if this wasn't enough, recruiters are able to use a variety of tactics to trick candidates into volunteering sensitive information that would be illegal to ask in an interview. It is this kind of information that recruiters use to unfairly eliminate candidates based on their secret criteria. Generic answers such as: I'm a workaholic, a perfectionist and I always try to please everyone are no longer going to cut it and neither is memorising lists of answers. In fact, memorising answers and trying to prepare for every possible scenario will work against you.
Not only do you run the risk of sounding like a robot, with a boring and flat delivery, you are also more likely to be caught off guard by the aggressive and fast-paced style of questioning. Within this guide, you will be shown how to create powerful answers that are flexible and can be applied to any scenario. You will learn why airlines use these trick questions, what the recruiter is secretly screening for and how to spot one so that you can avoid being culled by their deceptive tactics. No longer will you be cursed with run-of-the-mill and uninspiring answers that will have you sounding like everyone else, but can enter the process sounding like a top candidate. So prepare yourself, as you are about to understand the interview and hiring process from an entirely different viewpoint.
