Having my on the job training (OJT) in Qatar Airways under dnata Inc., gave me an unforgettable experience. I think it molded me to become what I want to be someday, a Cabin Attendant. They gave me the knowledge and experience of what I am going to experience in the world I want to be in. The stress, the pressure and everything. They thought me skills that I didn’t expect I can do. I enjoyed all the areas that I am assigned to. At the counter, I got the chance to put bag and hand carry tags to passengers’ bags which is not included in my task every duty. I also got to release the passengers’ boarding passes and informing them about the details of their flight. I also had the chance to assist arrival and departure crew and mingled with them. At first, it was intense and I was so nervous because I will be working in a new place and of course I will be working with a bunch of new people. I was worried of how difficult the flow of the flight will be each day, what type of people I am going to encounter and lastly, how I am going to get along with my new colleagues. Having an opportunity like this is already a great privilege. It taught me a lot of things that you can’t learn in school. From engaging with different people with different culture and attending to their needs. Luckily, at the end of the day, it all went smooth, I gained new friends and the important thing is that I had fun.
I was exposed to the works I was interested in.
