Si puedes elegir, no veo porque no hacerlo en tu idioma.. Siempre que lo hayan traducido bien! Yo lo hice en ingles.

And I am not English mother tongue.

Did my PSA last night and woke up this morning to 3 emails from QR asking me to fill out and submit short form 1 and long form 2. Is that part of PSA or post PSA part of the assessment?

Thank you. I'm not familiar with the process nor do I know anyone who has been through it. Once I submit the short form and long form is the next step for them to schedule an interview? Thank you

F14Smith,
I don't think you will have any trouple if you answer PSA in your own language. Because if they have thought that it would be a problem, they wouldn't give you the option. If you are willing to fill it in your own language just to be more comfortable then it is OK. However if you are doing that because you don't trust your language level, i would strongly recommend you to reconsider applying for Qatar. Because they are going to be looking for a certain level of english language.

Assuming you meet the requirements and haven't seen any change for months in your status, you might try to reapply....probably need a new email etc.
What do you have to lose?

I remember the time in this industry when one applied for jobs, several at a time, with the "hope" of getting called for an interview. These days it sounds more like applicants feel entitled to and expect an invitation by the mere fact that they made a small effort to apply. Is this the case now or am I just missing something?

I somewhat agree....I had my application in with American Airlines, with quarterly updates, for 4 years before being called, and all the time working for subsidiary regional carrier
But on other hand it is frustrating when others who are similarly qualified get a response in a week and you nothing.
While on subject flew with a very young FO...24 I think. He was complaining about such a long wait for his command on 777.????Am I missing something?

I think most of you guys are missing a big point here.
It always comes to the point of supply and demand. The more you are needed, the faster you get the response. Of course there are people with the similar backgrounds getting to the target faster and with less obstacles, and that is of course due to miscoordination of the departments of the company, however never changes the general fact.
Right now there is a huge hole for first officers in the middle east and that is why the captains are kept on hold in the talent pool. If there was a need of captains it would have been the opposite. Upgrading to your final aircraft in an earlier age is much better than an older one. You get more adapted to aircraft, you can be shaped with the company culture better and you would be less worn out by the narrower bodies.
In my current company we are dealing with some ex Dash-8 captains with the experience of 5-6,000 hours as commander, right now been on 737 for the last 2 years and who fly worse than the most of 2-3 year experienced first officers.
Please don't take it as any disrespect, however this is the proof in front of me and if i see some other things, i will come back here and edit with and apology with keeping the old post as it is.
Qatar had recruited enough captains for 2015 until the beginning of march and the ones who attend to the assessments after that date are practically applying to be hired in 2016. I know that it is not fair and i know that there must be a lot of captains who are much better than the already recruited ones but this is like a first comers get served first platform, so everone needs to act accordingly.

I just want to add one more thing;
In my humble opinion, the earliest age for commander position should be 30 regardless of your joining age. Commander position is not only about the skills and experience, but also about making right decisions with a calm and mature mind. So you need to be balanced innerself before sitting on a position which require the person to be in a very balanced nature. Which certainly comes with age...

Fos,

I passed the assesstment on February, captain, and I am in the "swimming" pool.
All you said follow some sort of logic, but we can make thousands of thoughts about how, why and when we will be called.. The truth is that none of us know how long we will be staying in this position. Well, we know that if it is more than one year we would have to do all over again.... Qatar is not giving informations and not answering mails/call on this subject. But they are still recruiting at the same pace as before.
At the assesstment they said many things, I am not yet even in the company and they are already failing to maintain their promises... Come on.

(Hope some emirates guys won't read this post.. )
