Have an interview coming up,should I go?

First of all I would like to wish everyone a very "Happy New Year".May all of you have a wonderful and prosperous year ahead and all your wishes come true especially those who are seeking an airline career.

Since this is my first post for the year,I would like to address the question above as I have a lot of emails/response about it. The usual "procrastination" are , I want to go BUT I am nervous, I have tried once but failed before, I am not ready, what if I fail, am I too old, I am pretty sure I won't be selected, I am this , I am that and etc etc......

Look, as mention in my earlier post, you really need to have confidence in yourself and stop giving excuses. Also I am pretty sure that everyone heard of "No harm trying".That is exactly what you should do. Sure, if you go, you may fail but then again if you do not go,u will 100% fail and lose the opportunity. Let's say, even though you did not pass on the first attempt ( touch wood ), it's not the end of the world and there is always something which you will gain out of it which is experience. With experience, you will definitely perform better next time, don't you agree? We always learn from mistakes thus improving ourselves.

Everyone says that is their dream to become a Pilot/Cabin crew,by failing an interview once and you gave up,indirectly you will let the interviewer feel that you are not passionate about your flying career and you are here just because there is an opening.Trust me, those interviewers have many years of experience in the airline industry and they can tell whether you are the right candidate or not.

Instead of asking so many"what if",why not use the time to prepare yourself for the interview. If you are more prepared, the less stress and nervous you will be. Airlines are not looking for perfect answers, it's more about the way and how you answer it and carry yourself during the interview.

Everyone will have their own obstacles and circumstances, so I suggest that you discard all the negative thoughts, channel and focus all your effort in getting the job first and once you been offered the contract, then only you decide whether to go, postpone or turn it down.

Since this is the new year, let's make a new start about how you approach an interview.Remember, if it's not YOU, then WHO, If it's not NOW then WHEN?
