Never A Failure, AAlways An Opportunity! Pt. 2

Sooooo do you all remember THIS blog post… where I shared how I applied to work at one of the largest airlines back in 2017 but after making it all the way through the hiring process I did not receive a conditional job offer. Well, I also applied in 2018 and after making it all the way to the face-to-face/ one-on-one interview it ended the same way…no CJO. As you can see I believed in myself. I believed that I had what it takes to be an amazing Flight Attendant so I didn’t give up on MYSELF. I was determined to continue pursuing this job until the recruiters saw in me what I saw in myself. I did nothing differently- that is a common question people often wonder after hearing that the third time was a charm. There were different recruiters the third time and they all saw what the others didn’t and I am okay with that.

I am grateful for the timing of all of this. I was able to teach some of the most amazing students and build bonds that will never be broken. I am also grateful for even graduating because it was a close one. As you all know Corona Virus aka COVID19 is causing the world to slowly shut down and that also goes for Flight Attendant training. I was in class two after moving from class one to be able to attend my friends’ wedding. Class one graduated 3/17 and three days later my class graduated four days early! I am thankful for EVERYONE who made this possible.

I am a proud member of Team Auckland training class 20-02! Although our time was cut short, so we could graduate, I am beyond grateful for my classmates and will forever cherish the memories that we made together. Being away from family and friends for five weeks was much harder than I thought it would be. I missed out on loved one’s birthdays and I was also in training during my birthday and I really LOVE birthdays. My classmates and instructors took time out to celebrate me and I truly appreciated every bit of it.

Pre-birthday celebration/ day off!

I can’t say enough about these three amazing instructors I was blessed with! Just know I am thankful that the stars aligned and I was moved to class two and placed in Team Auckland! NOTHING happens by mistake…everything was predestined! Thank you for everything Anna Sophia, Andrew, and Keith! My new besties whom I LOVE so much!

Grateful for this Queen! She wasn’t thrilled to be based in PHL at first but together we will make the most of it bc we will have each other!

We are the team with the BIGGEST HEARTS,

Best Preparation,

Deepest Passion,

Strongest Togetherness,

World’s best roomie right behind me! I love you Kelleigh!

and will to Succeed!

This day of productivity is ours!

Let’s create and capture greatness!

Meet me in the Sky!

    You said something so key that spoke to me! You believed in yourself and kept going until the recruiters saw in you what you saw in yourself! We take other people’s perspective as law and downplay our own so often which causes us to move on prematurely. Thanks you for this and congrats on this career change, this new chapter. This is awesome!
