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.
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!
