1. Suit and tie 2. highly polished black shoes 3. Clean shaven (unless its part of your heritage/always had a beard) 4. No dirt under the nails 5. Cut the fluff from the back of your hair line 6. Tidy up your chops (sideburns) 7. Any flesh that is on show must be clean (Oo Errrrrr Missus!!)
Look like you mean business then you will act the business. Your next interview may not arrive for another year...
Don't forget the sweat band for your head and embroider it with the Ryanair flight number you took to get there.
Hope this helps and don't hesitate to contact me for more recruitment advice.
Sorry, sat at Shoreham and cannot fly due to sh*t weather.
In all seriousness, coming from a HR background:
1. Don't wear strong after shave for various reasons. If i listed the pyschological reason behind this you would all laugh at me.
2. DON'T wear matching colour shirt and tie (Burton clubbing style). It shows a total lack of taste/individuality. HR people hate it.
3. A prospective employer will base a large amount of their decision on how you would fit in in the first eight seconds of meeting you. Before anyone wants an argument on this, look it up. It important that you have open body language, smile and eye contact every meber of the room eqaully whern you first walk in.
I hope this is a little more helpful than my previous verbose comments.
What always works is a navy-blue or black suit. Black leather classic shoes, but NOT laquered. They must be clean, also the underside. Wear a white or light blue shirt.
A red tie, without prints on it.Ever Watched the Presidential debates? They always wear red ties because this makes a person look confident, strong and a "leader" without being "dull".
Facial hair is OK for already a while now people. A ringbeard is actually quite distinguished, as long as your beard is trimmed and your haircut is tidy. People who still believe that having facial hair will stand in the way of a job have some catching-up to do, or live in the US.
I have been previously involved in recruiting/selecting for Flight Academies and Airlines.
Does anyone who has recently done the Ryanair sim check remember the profile of the flight? I would be very interested in speeds and flap retraction/extension schedules. In fact, anything you can remember would be a help.
RWY 28 out of LPL with the W2T departure. Flap 1 take off. Climbs and decents at assigned speed. Steep turns. Back to the NDB on an assigned bearing (Will you turn the right way to get it?) Engine fire on way back. Into hold ....then out for a procedural Single Engine ILS into 28.
