Cathay Pacific kicks off campus careers road show
24 Feb 2005
Cathay Pacific today hosted a Flight Attendant Career Talk at the Hong Kong Shue Yan College, in the first in a series of career talks to be staged by the airline at tertiary institutions across the territory.
Two experienced flight attendants, Perry Yu and Larry Chan, shared their experiences and answered questions concerning the career and entry and application requirements. Cathay Pacific aims to hire 1,200 new cabin attendants this year.
The airline also set up a booth on campus with a slide show introducing different roles and activities of flight attendants. Career brochures are also available.
Cathay Pacific is undergoing one of the fastest periods of growth in its almost 60-year history, adding 11 aircraft to its fleet this year and creating 1,500 jobs, including 1,200 for cabin crew and 200 for ground staff. New services and destinations will be added through the year, including the launch of a thrice-weekly service to Xiamen starting 28 February.
Cathay Pacific Career Development and Resourcing Manager Patton Chan said: “The airline industry is challenging and interesting and we hope that our campus career road show will give students a clearer picture about opportunities and where they might fit in. As Hong Kong’s airline, Cathay Pacific will continue to create job opportunities for Hong Kong people.”
