One of the first hurdles to securing employment as Cabin Crew is having the perfect Cabin Crew CV. Did you know that there are probably thousands of applicants just like you that are applying for the same job? Did you know that recruiters will read many, many CVs during the recruitment process? The answer? Your Cabin Crew CV needs to be AMAZING!
Lets imagine that I am a recruiter looking at Cabin Crew CVs for a moment…. here are some of the things that I might come across….
Spelling and grammatical errors
This tells me that you do not pay attention to detail. Most airlines want you to pay attention to detail as service is very important to them. This CV is thrown out.
Gaps in your work history
Getting an airside pass can be tricky at the best of times. Having a gap in your CV only makes this harder. This CV is put to the bottom of the pile.
Inconsistent fonts, writing styles, tenses etc
Airlines have a set service and standards and they want you to stick to it. It your CV demonstrates that you are all over the place then that is the impression that the recruiter will have! This CV is also out.
Boring interests and hobbies
A recruiter will probably look at hundreds, if not thousands, of CVs before choosing who to interview. It is important that yours stands out (for the right reasons). Does your CV state that you like socialising and going to the cinema? Yep, so does a couple hundred others. Instead, say that you took a PADI course, that you climbed a Mount Kilimanjaro or are excellent at cooking Thai food. You’re not boring, not make your CV boring!
Not including reference to key skills and qualities
It’s really not that difficult, but most people do not match their Cabin Crew CV to the job description of the job that they are applying for. You should ALWAYS make it look like you have written your CV for that particular job. Include a reference to the name of the airline and make sure that you mention EVERY skill and quality that they include in their job description. They are looking for people who match that description, so show them that that person is you!
Is your Cabin Crew CV good to go?
I’ve taught employability skills for over ten years and I have come to learn that whilst writing a CV isn’t the most difficult task in the world, most people get it wrong!
This is why I am now offering a personalised Cabin Crew CV service. For only £99 I will edit and amend your CV according to the job description of the airline that you are applying to.
