Knowing whether your application form is good enough to get through is tough. Here are some tips.
This type of question will ask for your opinion on things like what makes you think you are suitable for the role, what motivates you, what your strengths/ weaknesses are.
Here you need to provide proof of what you have done in the past. E.G. ‘can you provide an example of a time when…’ ‘Can you describe a situation where…’ ‘Please detail an occasion when…’ You need to think about your experience and then give an example which is good evidence of what you think they want to see. This might be ‘team work’ or ‘good communication skills’ or ‘showing initiative’.

Think about what you have done which you are proud of and have made a difference. Include these in your application.
Think about what the airline values most (using the job description to inform you). Make sure your experiences prove that you can do this.
Think of any interesting, relevant information you can include to make yourself stand out.
Don’t just use the first answer to come to mind- come up with a few ideas before deciding on the best one.
Get someone else to read your application and give you feedback. Consider using a professional service (our CV review is relevant to application forms as well) to get the best quality feedback on what you are getting right or wrong
If you aren’t strong on spelling and grammar get the form checked by someone who is! Watch out for typos; sometimes you need someone else to spot these for you.
Stick to the word limit, not too much under and definitely not over.
