Would a career as a flight attendant be your dream come true?

Does the idea of working in an office 30,000 feet above the ground make you all sorts of excited?

Have you ever looked up at the sky and imagined what it would be like to work on a plane?

Would you love a career where every day you are meeting new people, visiting new places, helping strangers, and sharing a smile?

If this sounds like you, then you are in the right place!

Flight Attendant Career Connection offers resources, encouragement, coaching, and community to aspiring flight attendants. You may have seen us mentioned in the Huffington Post, Mashable.com, or Yahoo Travel.

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Abbie Unger and I founded Flight Attendant Career Connection in 2013. The company started with just a book, Looking Skyward: Turn Your Flight Attendant Dreams into Reality, and a Facebook group. Over the last 2 years I have developed a proven interview coaching system that has helped aspiring flight attendants land their dream job with airlines of all sizes including Delta, United, Southwest, jetBlue, Envoy, Alaska, PSA Airlines, Skywest, and more.

I became a flight attendant in 2006 when I was hired by United. I still the remember the way I felt when the recruiter looked at me and invited me to training. It was one of the happiest days of my life. I went through seven and a half weeks of training. The day I earned my wings was one of the proudest days of my life. Six weeks after graduation, I misunderstood an assignment I was given by crew scheduling and missed my flight. I was fired for this one missed check-in and heart broken. But I knew I was meant to be a flight attendant and I started applying with everyone who was hiring. About two months after leaving United, I started training with Continental Airlines. When I got married in 2008, my new husband’s job took us to Memphis and I had a hard time making my career and my marriage work. I resigned and tried to be happy with a job on the ground. I wasn’t. My heart was in the sky and in 2009, I pinned on a pair of PSA Airlines wings and started flying again. I was promoted to inflight instructor and check flight attendant. After I had my first baby in 2011, I found myself at a crossroads and again needed to choose family over flying. I now have three children and run Flight Attendant Career Connection from my home office. Do I miss flying? Everyday! But I love the work I get to do as a career coach and flight attendant expert.

Our biggest resource, the Flight Attendant Career Connection Facebook group is free and I would love for you to join me and over 20,000 other current, former, and aspiring flight attendants.

The FACC interview workbook will give you an opportunity to brainstorm and practice how you would answer over 35 airline interview questions.

If you are looking for more personalized help, interview coaching sessions may be a good fit.

I am so excited that you found us. The flight attendant career isn’t for everyone. This job is full of days that are hard and long and stressful. People yell at you. You will miss your family. The pay is low.
But if this is the career for you, none of that matters and you wouldn’t have life be any other way. –
Fly safe and keep looking skyward!
