Being a fresh grad and keeping my options open, I went on to apply for several other jobs as well while waiting for the next CC interview session, and somewhere in between I found this engineering company that pays comparable to a CC on an "above average" month, the benefits were rather attractive to the point I stopped bothering to attend anymore interviews with SQ.
I would say I got the job mostly because of the things that I've learnt from your talks. Although I don't remember most of it anymore now, but I still remember how you talked about "likeability" and how one should be able to relate to the interviewers, and showing stability and maturity. Oh, I never forgot about that smile, even though it was an engineering company that never needed any smile. I recently renovated my room so a lot of my old notes (including the ones I took during your talks) are deep inside some box, I wish I can find it now!
My job requires me to fly rather frequently to exhibitions (about once every 2 months) and all of them sponsored by my company on SQ so far, so although I no longer pursue a dream of flying as a CC, I now fly SQ frequently enough to somewhat fulfil my flying dream, although as a passenger.
Anyway, sorry to not have updated you, on the one hand I wanted to thank you for teaching me a rather useful universal interview skill, on the other hand, I was kind of paiseh to let you know that I never made it to SQ in the end.
Hope you've been well and do keep on writing your ever entertaining stories!!
