How did she get the job as a flight attendant? She only applied online and waited for an interview from the airline company. She passed the series of interviews and open day assessments and is now working as a cabin crew in a Dubai airline.

This was a great opportunity for her and it helped a lot that she already has work experience in the same field which made her stand out from the rest of the cabin crew applicants.

Rose says the benefits are good because they get allowances and flying hour pay. She hopes to build her life in the Emirates and send money back to her family in the Philippines. Right now, she is happy that she is here with her husband.

Thoughts about Dubai in this OFW story:

  • It’s good to have similar experience when applying for the same job in Dubai. Rose was a cabin crew in the Philippines hence, she has an advantage compared to other nationalities who were also vying for the role as a flight attendant.
  • Also a plus if you have established the same experience for a number of years to have a solid qualification background. Most companies look for similar work experience. Otherwise, you will have to make sure you stand out even without the same job background in the same field.
