Hi All. Another 30 year old here! Currently a construction site manager. Ex RAF aircraft maintenance mechanic (Hopefully this will work in my favour) Applied last week so keeping everything crossed to get an invitation to complete the online assesments/interviews.

Good luck to everyone!

Last year applications closed on Sunday and the follow-up email was sent out on Wednesday. I hope we get an answer this week, but now we can only prepare and be patient.

Status updated in Air Lingus career website

Hello,

If I log in into my Air Lingus careers account I can see the status of my application updated to: “Invite to pre selection online test”. No confirmation e-mail received yet.

Anyone else's application status change to "Invite to Pre Selection Online Test" on the careers page? Would expect the emails to follow soon!

My site just says Application Received. Does that infer rejection? Or has it not been looked at yet?

Iím the same! Absolutely gutted if that means theyíve already finalised their selection for assessments. However I did see on the 2018 forum there was someone who got the invite mail
However as per the portal it remained as ďapplication receivedĒ. Fingers crossed thatís the case! Best of luck to everyone whose status has been updated.

I wouldn't jump to that conclusion just yet. Keep the faith. Mine is also still at application received, though I submitted towards the end of the application window, so I am telling myself they are just going through the applications in order received..... Hopefully that's the case anyway, haha.

Is anyone else over 30? Iím 38 so am feeling like I might be the oldest. I think I have enough experience though. I was cabin crew for 6 years and then an air traffic controller for 10 years. Hopefully thatíll count for something. Good luck everyone.

You are not the oldest.
Age should not make a difference if they run the selection process in a professional way however I guess that there is a mark where it doesn't make practical or economic sense to start a new career, and EU discrimination laws do not make easy to clearly state this in a job offer.

Hi - I'm a few years older than you so hopefully age is just a number!

Hi guys, Iím so happy! Iíve gotten the pre selection invite status update on the careers portal however no mail yet. Iíve a feeling the mail will go out on Thursday and give people Friday - Sunday to complete similar to other years. Also just so people are aware they appear to be updating each person manually as my buddy had his status update last night and mine was only updated now. Also on last yearís forum I saw someone whose status never changed but yet he got the mail with the invite to complete the assessments so donít lose hope and make sure you are preparing regardless. Best of luck everyone!! ✈️

Also, are the pre selection tests the pilot aptitude and maths tests or is that something different?

They canít discriminate based on sex. They just encourage more females to apply. I wouldnít worry. You could always say you identify as female!

Yes I am 31. It seems there are a few who have commented so far in the 30-40 bracket.

I'm also over 30, 36 to be exact. Still plenty of piloting life left in all of us!

Good luck for the online assessments, everyone! Is it definitely the cut-e assessments they use as I had read earlier?
