Good afternoon. I'm here today to talk to you about a career with our airline.
We're especially interested in recruiting people to fill openings for flight attendants.
First of all, to work as a flight attendant with us, you must be accepted into our training program and with so many people applying, it's not easy to be selected.
From the thousands of applications that we receive annually, we choose fewer than a thousand people for training.
So, we require experience serving the public; and it also helps if you've earned some college credits.
Also, not everybody who gets accepted into the training program makes it through.
The course meets six days a week for five weeks.
The training includes extensive classroom work in such subjects as first aid and passenger psychology as well as practical training in flight procedures and meal service.
A lot of our graduates say that our flight attendants develop the skills of a nurse, a headwaiter, and a public relations executive!
But, as a flight attendant myself, I can say that all of the hard work is worth it.
Of course, I get to travel throughout the country, and the airline pays all of my expenses while I'm away from my base station.
And, what I like best of all is that I've made friends with people from all over the country!
