You will be contacted…

After an agonising SIX WEEKS- of checking the candidate portal every single day (okay, a few times- every single day. OKAY why lie, every single morning right the way through to mignight probably a good 30 times a day) I finally get the infamous message;

You will be contacted by your recruitment co-ordinator at the earliest..

I ACTUALLY scream at the computer screen! Run outside and phone my mum straight away! I couldn’t believe it i was so so happy, i had been through so much hurt before now and the constant battles of wondering which direction i was heading in my life in terms of jobs- i just couldnt believe i could be this happy again.  It just made the emotional ups and downs i experienced when (lets just label him ‘C’) broke my heart- AH- sigh. Drama queen strikes again- but its true. It made it worth all the pain. To know i achieved this, I DID THIS! I took all the little steps i needed to do to achieve this- and it just felt so good

I then had to wait a further 3 weeks for the official ‘GOLDEN CALL’ (the GC in the ….lingo!). This wait was painful as well! It felt like i was just window shopping this new fabulous career- u know, i could see it in the window- there in all it’s glory- but i wasn’t quite ready to have it just yet.

THEN- i get the magic +971 Dubai digits flash up on my phone! Roxy tells me to look out for this number- so i  knew exactly who it was going to be! ARGH YES this is IT! Here we go! I hear a softly spoken woman on the other end saying “Congratulations Jessica- welcome to ….. Cabin Crew. Would you be available to start on the 14th September”.


I remember how happy i was at this moment. I take a photo of how happy i was on this day- you might think that this is strange. But i did it- to make sure i remembered how happy i was when i received this life-changing news. And to never forget it. This was so important to me-

And so the …… rollercoaster continues, but now it is just the formalities, paperwork and PRE-EMPLOYMENT MEDCALS (which is a whole other world of a story to tell :/ nothing is ever easy let me just put it that way!)
