Attending a Qatar Airways Open Day

This post is for those who want to try for Qatar Airways this February 18 (at Manila Hotel) . YES, they will be going back in the Philippines to recruit both male and female for the cabin position! :)

I've tried several times, attended the second stage thrice, but never got the chance to reach the third stage which is the final interview.  Nevertheless, and through the best that I can, I'm willing to give some basic tips in attending the open day.

I'm re-posting my blog entry dated: November 11, 2010

Days before: 
Prepare your requirements:  
1. Curriculum Vitae 
2. 4R photo (whole body in Sky Blue Background)
 3. Passport size PHOTO in Sky Blue Background ( I am emphasizing the word photo, no need for your actual passport, the recruitment officers will not ask you to show that to him/her)

** you may also have your own reach test as it will be the first step in the Open Day. You should be able to reach 212 cm in order to proceed and submit your requirements to the recruiter. 

Day itself: 

Be in proper ATTIRE.  The Open Day is described as non-interactiveas you will just be submitting your requirements, but the recruiter will still throw you a question or questions if he/she likes. You may think it is okay to come in wearing jeans, but that may blew your chances of getting the much awaited call (to come in for the 2nd day) at the end of the day

WOMEN: Knee length skirt, Coat/Corporate Blazer, Inner blouse (the one that looks corporate), closed shoes (wear a pair that is most comfortable to you; I suggest one that isn’t too high because if you arrived with a queue already, you will easily get tired, skintone stockings (optional). Doll up yourself! Be in full make up. Put your hair in a bun or in any way, as long as your hair is pulled away from your face. Clip your bangs.

MEN: Slacks, Corporate Blazer/Coat, Inner Polo, Tie, Closed Shoes

Advertisements say that the schedule is 9:00-12:00 (morning til noon) . Although it says 9 am, come early. I suggest you come in between 7:00 am-7:30 am to avoid long lines. 

Be natural. Do not be intimidated by other people. Remember that each one is different, each one is unique. Remember that you do not need to look like a celebrity or a beauty queen with this kind of event, you can stand out with your simplicity. If the recruiter likes you and if it’s really your time, everything will fall into place.

Be confident. Leave your worries behind. Leave your personal problems at home. 

Be friendly. It's okay to talk with the person beside you or behind you. It can help you gain more confidence and it can help you forget the nervousness you're feeling. 

SMILE.   Never forget to flash your pearly whites all the time. 

All the best!
