Most people who attend a job interview are nervous. They don’t know what to expect, even though they have a deep desire to perform well and not disappoint (themselves, their loved ones and even the stranger who is doing the interviewing).
We are wired to wish to do our best. It is in our nature.
But many candidates don’t really know what does that mean in a real-life situation.
What does the airline look for in their cabin crew candidates?
What is the profile of an ideal candidate?
What is a positive first impression and how can we achieve it?
What are the key skills they want you to display?
How can you develop these abilities and behaviors?
In fewer words
What do you need to say and do so that you are successful at the cabin crew interview?
I’ve mentored and spoke to thousands of cabin crew and wannabe cabin crew for the past 14 years, and I’ve learned from them the difference between the ones who make it and the ones who don’t. And there is only one secret.
You need to prepare.
Nobody wants to hire a candidate who just rolled out of bed and showed up at the cabin crew interview hoping for the best and believing that good luck or good looks will ensure their success. It just doesn’t work that way.
But for me, saying “just be prepared” isn’t good enough of advice. In my own life, when I want to learn something, I need to know EXACTLY how to do it. I need simple and easy to understand steps that will gradually guide me towards where I want to be.
When I decided to put everything I know about being successful at the cabin crew interview in one place, this is the format that I created – exact steps of what to say and do, a preview of the assessment day, what you should expect and what the airline expects from you. The focus is also on things you can change, skills you can improve and behaviors you can slowly embrace as part of who you are. This is a long book. You’ve got 298 pages. You can’t get it today so you can be prepared tomorrow. It’s not a magic pill with immediate release. It is a miraculous shift in how you approach everything in life.
And I’m so excited to be able to offer it to you now.

Our readers are saying...
- For the past few years I have tried unsuccessfully to join Emirates. I got a “no” five times. So, at the end of last year I found out and read your book “How to Become a Flight Attendant” and that was my passport to success. I have started the year very well because I am joining Etihad in just a few days. Bye bye Brazil, hello UAE. Thank you so much for writing an incredible book, Kara!Diogo Santos
- Thank you Kara for everything… I will never forget your emails and your supportive words. God bless you!Iro Fili
- I got the job!!! Thank you so much for your kind advice, guidance and the great book! I passed even though I wasn’t so sure. Thank you Kara!Liyana Eddie
- Hi Kara, I recently had an assessment day and they called me,to give me the great news. I was accepted...I m very happy, I learnt a lot from your book and the course..I wanted to be very prepared and I managed to do that with your help..Thank you..!Geanina Rusu
- During the time I sent you emails to ask about the course and finally decided to apply for it, I was hoping that one day I would be writing you this email. When the time has arrived, now, I still couldn't believe it's actually happening and that I'm moving to Dubai this October! I got a job with Emirates, the only airline I dream to work for! It's one of the biggest life-changing events of mine and it's happening so soon! I'm so thankful for how helpful you have been replying to my emails regarding the course. Without your explanation, I probably decided not to take the course and did not get one of the greatest opportunity in my life. My mindset changed and I have developed a lot, using techniques and knowledge you offered in the course. The interview with Emirates I succeeded was my second try, but the first try after I registered for the course. I would say your course is one of the biggest influences of my success and I'm really happy with my decision.Wannida Kasiwong
- I would like to thank you for everything, the information I received from your website really helped me like none before. I even bought your book and it was more of a bible for me. I am working with Emirates as a crew for the past 2 months. I would like to thank you and ready to give out any recommendation to other people can realize it's so real and they can get the job only when they are serious and put their heart into following whatever advice you give them. Once again thank you very much.Mimi Areme
