Emirates new condition

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 11.08.08Hi people, it’s been a while since I haven’t post anything on my blog. You probably know that i’m preparing myself to leave my beautiful country for another life. The last weeks have been really empty has I had to see my doctors, to buy a lot of stuff, and to meet all of my friends before the “big move”, indeed, I’ll move in about two weeks :D. I haven’t start to pack anything yet but I will in few days. My mother is so sad, she is always asking me ” is that for real? My little baby is leaving me “. This hurts me so much omg! But this is life, the little baby is growing for a better future and she will be able to see me every time she will want to!

When I passed my recruitment process, there was no condition about height, the only one was about “arm reach of 212 while standing on tiptoes”. But now, you also have to be a “minimum height of 160 cm”. Know that they are really strict with that new rule, it means that during the recruitment process, you will have to reach two lines: one for to make sure that your height is a minium of 160 cm and the other one to make sure that you are able to reach 212 cm. In my opinion, I think this is to limit the number of persons who applied …

Anyway, I had to share it with you and i’m feeling really sad for those who had the idea to apply and are really disappointed. But don’t lose hope and don’t forget that you can try with another company such as Etihad or Qatar Airways, I don’t know anything about their requirement but you have nothing to lose to make some research.
