Resume Tips for Flight Attendant Applicants

Flight Attendant Resume Sample

Sample (pdf)


There is a lot of competition for flight attendant jobs. In 2013, Southwest Airlines received 10,000 applications for 750 attendant positions - in about two hours. The year previous, 114,000 people applied for 2,500 flight attendant spots.  Itís the same with the other airlines: US Airways had 16,500 applicants in January 2013 for 450 spots, and Delta Air Lines got 22,000 for 300 to 400 positions.

What we're trying to tell you is that you need to do the research and work required to get the job.  Just slapping together your resume and submitting is a waste of time.  Even with the research, flights to interview locations, and hours spent editing and formatting your resume for each airline, it could still take you 6 months or more to get the job. 

So, lets put this in perspective, this little paper - called your resume - is the only thing that employers have to decide whether or not to select you for an interview.

Here are some things to consider when writing your resume for a flight attendant position.

What to include:

Every language that you master can be a major advantage, especially if the airline has plans of expansion in those countries.

Example: Fluent in English and Spanish; beginner in French.

Highlights such as:

Highly adaptable, positive, resilient, open to new ideas.

Proven relationship-builder with excellent interpersonal skills.

Personable individual whose strengths include cultural sensitivity and an ability to build rapport with a diverse workforce in a multicultural environment.

Dependable, responsible contributor committed to excellence and success.

Loyal and dedicated employee with an excellent employment record.

Energetic personality consistently praised for my passion for work and upbeat, positive attitude.

Enthusiastic, knowledge-hungry learner, eager to meet challenges and quickly assimilate new concepts.

What NOT to include:

Driving license - it is irrelevant to the airline if you can drive a car or not. If you can drive a plane; however, that is important to include in your skill set.

Computer skills - the ability to use the computer is no longer mentionable as the computer became the main tool in the business world.

Hobbies - it is considered "old school" to include your hobbies on your resume. Being a passionate knitter will not make you a more desirable candidate.

► References - unless you have been instructed by the employer to list the details of your references, this should simply state:

Professional references will be gladly provided upon request.
