This is the face of someone who just cried for hours. I was super excited to have found out I would be joining the number one airline in the world. Let's rewind for a minute. So back in January 2015 I applied for the job. In March, I received an invitation to the Assessment Day, which is basically a recruitment event. In May, I flew out to Atlanta where the event was held and there were a total of 51 potential candidates. Out of 51 people I believe only 7 of us made it through to the final interview. So after that (June 1, 2015 to be specific), it has been a waiting game since then. I would go to work, log in on my account to check my status everyday only to see "Final interview complete" at this point its 50/50 because they can either tell you yes or no. I would log on to my Facebook group for the applicants and see that everyone has gotten their JFIP (Joining Formalities In Progress) which means you got the job. On June 8th, I received a text from two individuals whom I met down in Atlanta, who unfortunately did not get the position.
Receiving that text message alone scared me and while I was at work I said to myself "let me go check my status and to my surprise my status went from "Final Interview Complete" to "Joining Formalities in Progress." As soon as I saw that I couldn't help but cry. I cried so freaking hard that my co-workers were worried that someone close to me had died. Little did they know, it was tears of joy. All I could do is thank the most high and just think about how my life was about to change. So, at this point its another waiting game for the Golden Call, which is when they call you to congratulate you and also ask a few questions like are you married or single? What is your annual leave destination? How much notice do you have to give your job? And finally CAN YOU START ON ______ DATE? So, I am happy to say that I received my Golden Call on Saturday July 12 at 11 pm Est, asking me those questions and also asking if I am able to start on September 10th. Heck yea I can!!!! But there's yet another waiting game...(roll eyes) We have to sign into a portal and upload documents such as medical forms, contract acceptance, passport photo ect....and then we will finally receive the FA (Final Approval) So I am realllllly super duper excited and happy to say that my life From September 10 and so forth will forever be changed!!! I AM GOING TO BE LIVING IN DUBAI!!!! OMG..I CANNOT FREAKING BELIEVE THIS!!
To anyone that’s waiting on their status to be updated to JFIP and to receive their GC be patient and just believe that you have the job. What's for you will happen and nothing will stop it from reaching you. It’s my passion to travel the world and this is definitely going to open other doors for me!!! Good Luck and I'll see you in Dubai!
