Building Your Cabin Crew CV

Building your cabin crew CV is one of the most critical steps to consider. Based on how you present it, you may or may not receive an invitation for an interview with the airline.

A Curriculum Vitae

 – CV or a Resume provides an overview of a person’s experience and education.The only thing that the employers have to establish who gets interviewed further is this piece of paper with information on it.
They will not call you to explain a particular paragraph or give more details. They will not spend too long reading your resume. They will select information and make a decision: in or out.So let’s make sure that you have a great resume and increase your chances of showing them that you have what it takes to be a cabin crew for their Airline.

Before we start with the content of the cabin crew CV, we will focus on a couple of general rules:

Keep it simple
Use no more than two easy to read fonts such as: Arial, Helvetica, Times New Roman or Verdana.
Print you resume on plain white paper.
Start the CV from a template.
Templates are available as free download or preloaded within MS Word or Pages programs on your computer or phone.
Microsoft Word
Open the MS Word, click on File>>New>>Templates>>Resumes and CVs
Open the program, click on File>>New from Template Chooser>>Resumes
Keep it short
For the cabin crew entry position, one page is sufficient. Stick to the guidelines and do not give information that is not required.
Include summaries of your employment and education, rather than lots of details. Use formal and well-written language, writing simply and clearly. No slang or abbreviations.
There is no room for grammatical or spelling errors in a resume. You can use a specific spell check (available in Word or Pages).
Step 1 – Personal Details
On the top of the page include:
Full name
Home address
Personal email address
Mobile phone

Make sure you include an email address that has your name, not nicknames or screen names such as ‘’ or ‘’. If you do not have an email address with your name, create one immediately.
It is not necessary nor recommended to include your date of birth, religion, nationality, marital status or political affiliation.

Step 2 – Professional experience
Start with your latest job and continue in reverse chronological order. Include the volunteer jobs or unpaid internships as well.
State Start Date to End Date – If it is the present job, just fill the start date – present. For all the previous jobs, include the month and year.
Company name – Use the officially registered company name
Company location – City and Country
Job Title – Your official job title
Job Description – Use short sentences stating the key job responsibilities, highlighting your skills and accomplishments. Include relevant information with just enough detail to demonstrate your skills and show your attention to details along with the ability to communicate and organize your thoughts. Use bullets and try keep to maximum of 3-4 lines.

Step 3 – Education
State the highest level of education only. Any additional certificates can also be listed here.
If you went to college, there is no need to give details about the high school.
Dates of attendance
School name
Degree obtained
2010-2013              New York University              New York, USA
B.A, Major in Art History
2009-2013         M. Bergtraum High School           New York – USA
High School Certificate

Step 4 – Skills
Listing relevant skills can help you stand out from the crowd. During an Open Day, the assessors quickly scan resumes, so long lists are not likely to get their attention. Instead, select 5-10 of your strongest, most desirable skills. A short, targeted skills list will be more effective than one that’s long and overwhelming. Relevant skills for the flight attendant position include:
There are no two flights the same. You will constantly be exposed to new customers, new colleagues and new situations. Show here that you already have the skills to deal with such circumstance.
Highly adaptable, positive, resilient, open to new ideas.
Interpersonal Abilities:
Describes your ability to relate to your co-workers or customers and inspire others to participate.
Proven relationship-builder with excellent interpersonal skills.
Multicultural Sensitivity and Awareness:
Diversity is possibly the most prominent issue in the airline world. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a sensitivity and awareness to other people and cultures.
Personable individual whose strengths include cultural sensitivity and an ability to build rapport with a diverse workforce in a multicultural environment.
There’s no question that all employers desire employees who will arrive to work on time and ready to accomplish, and who will take responsibility for their actions.
Dependable, responsible contributor committed to excellence and success.
Employers want employees who will have a steadfast devotion to the company.
Loyal and dedicated employee with an excellent work record.
Positive Attitude, Motivation, Energy and Passion
The people who get hired and the employees who get promoted are the ones with drive and enthusiasm, and the ones who demonstrate this spirit through their words and actions.
Energetic personality consistently praised for my passion for work and upbeat, positive attitude.
Willingness to Learn:
Regardless of age and experience, you should always be willing to learn a new skill or technique. The airline world is an ever-changing environment, with new rules and regulation, procedures and manuals amended very often, so this skill is crucial.
Enthusiastic, knowledge-hungry learner, eager to meet challenges and quickly assimilate new concepts.
Language Skills:
Every language you master can be a significant advantage, especially if the airline has plans of expansion in the countries where this language is spoken.
Fluent in English and Spanish
Beginner in French

Skills not to include in your cabin crew CV

• Driving license – it is irrelevant to the airline if you can drive a car or not.

• PC skills – the ability to use the computer became unmentionable as the computer is one of the main tools in the business world. • If you are on this website, or you found the airline website and the details on how to get to the Open Day, you are computer literate.
Hobbies – your hobbies are part of your personal, not professional life. If during the interview you are asked about your hobbies and interests, by all means, share more about yourself. For the CV, however, present only your professional accomplishments.

Step 5 – References
Unless you were previously instructed to list the details of your references, this part of your CV should remain open.
If you want to be prepared, print on a separate page a list of 2 or 3 references with name, company, position and contact email or phone number. If the assessors want to have a list of your recommendations, you may immediately provide them with one a copy.
Now that you have all the information so let us proceed to make your resume.
Open a new file and start typing. It will be difficult at the beginning to choose professional terms for your experience and skills, but this is an effort which will pay off - you will have a magnificent CV and maximize your chances of becoming a cabin crew soon.
