No.

Those who haven't received calls yet, don't lose hope... I know of an instance when a candidate was called after his given "time limit" had long expired. The one week time limit expires tomorrow anyway, so there is still time.

Quote:
Are you sure they dont send candidates any rejection email?
As such, unsuccessful candidates do not receive any rejection e-mails, so they can be invited to attend further stages of the assessment, even after their projected "time limit". However if you do end up getting rejected, you get an official rejection letter around one month after your last interview/test.

Some internal postings for crew issued. Likely to be all taken by current cadet courses, but to all those applying good luck. There may well be some hiring.

How many people were at the initial tests? I mean like each day. It also appears that international applicants are only on the 23rd/24th? Any other international applicants on another day? By international i mean ones with HK PR but reside overseas. Anyone know if this is the first time they've made an overseas applicant schedule?

Hey Yvonne,

I don't think there really is a set number of people at each test, sometimes there can be as many as 40, sometimes only 20 people turn up. The test venue (a small auditorium) can only accomodate about 50 candidates at any one time, so barring any changes that is the maximum number of people per test.

I've never heard of KA making a special schedule catering to overseas applicants before, they've always been very local-oriented.
