Between Question & Answer: Ute von Funcke
Do you know what you might be asked during your interview and what you will say to create a good impression? Generic answers such as: I´m a workaholic, a perfectionist and I always try to please everyone are no longer going to cut it and neither is memorising lists of answers. In fact, memorising answers and trying to prepare for every possible scenario will work against you. Not only do you run the risk of sounding like a robot, with a boring and flat delivery, you are also more likely to be caught off guard by the aggressive and fast-paced style of questioning. This groundbreaking book focuses exclusively on preparing you for the final section of the cabin crew interview selection process - The 2 on 1 interview. The answers you provide during this crucial stage of the interview can make or break your success. Your answers need to be detailed and yet concise thus eliminating the need for the interviewers to probe further with follow up questions - this book will show you the correct method to formulating such answers thus enabling you to devise your own well constructed answers at any given moment. You will learn why airlines use trick questions, what the recruiter is secretly screening for and how to spot one so that you can avoid being culled by their deceptive tactics. Subsequently, you will find sample answers to the most frequently asked interview questions. The questions cover a variety of topics and will give you a deeper insight into what is considered to be well constructed answers. Here is just a selection of the questions that are demonstrated...
