Cabin Crew Confidence Assessment Hacks

Confidence is a funny thing, and an area in which pretty much all of us struggle in one way or another.

We all have areas of our life where we feel ultra confident, and other areas where certain things can make us feel like a nervous wreck!

Applying for a Cabin Crew job, whether it’s your first time or you’re seasoned crew looking to work for a different airline, can be incredible nerve wracking – especially in the assessment day and interview stages!

However we have a few tips for you which we hope will get you on your way to helping improve your confidence for these types of stressful situations, and make you realise that actually, you’ve got this!

1. Breathe!!

This one sounds really obvious. But not breathing properly, and taking shallow and rapid breaths when you’re feeling a little wound up will actually make the situation worse – making you feel panicky.

Practice deep breathing, and if you’re in a situation where nerves are starting to get the better of you, like waiting to be called in for interview, try to sit quietly and focus on your breathing for a minute.

Take a few deep, slow breaths and concentrate on the sensations of breathing in and breathing out. This will slow your mind down for a minute and help relax your body a little – trust us, it really does help!

2. Look at your Posture

Good posture is something that many people take for granted, but a lot of people who lack confidence in their abilities reflect this in the way they stand and move, and as a result have poor posture.

What’s the first thing you notice about someone brimming with confidence? The way they hold themselves? The way they walk into a room? How they stand out in a group? These are things that have a big impact on first impressions and how people perceive us.

However doing something as simple as making the effort to put your shoulders back, hold your head up high and stand up straight and tall can not only give others the impression that your confident, it can actually play a little psychological trick on you and make you feel more confident too!

3. Think of someone you admire

This can be quite a fun one!

Who do you admire most? Maybe it’s someone you know, or a celebrity you admire, or even a historical figure. Take a piece of paper and write down all the qualities that you admire about them.

Then when you’re dealing with a situation that makes you feel uncomfortable think to yourself – what would this person do? Would they let nerves get the better of them or would they tackle things head on?

This can really help giving you that extra boost – and once you’ve done it once it becomes easier and easier.

4. Dress to impress

Deciding what to wear for your Cabin Crew Assessment Day or Interview might mean that you’ll be dressing differently from normal. But try to do this in a way that makes you feel comfortable too.

For example make sure what you’re wearing is in good condition and fits you well – you don’t want to be uncomfortable because your trouser are a little tight, or worried that your skirt might fall down a little too much if it’s loose!

If you know you look good, and you feel comfortable, you’ll feel more confident. Simple as that.

5. Flip the Negative into the Positive

Again this can actually be quite fun!

Think of the situation you’re worried about – let’s take an interview as an example.

What is the best outcome? And what is the worst? What it boils down to is you get the position or you don’t.

If you don’t get the position, what might you gain from the whole interview process? Perhaps experience, or helpful feedback for your next interview which might help you feel more confident next time round.

Try to always look for the positive – not what you stand to lose but what you stand to gain and learn from each new experience.
