Etihad in Brasil

Hi guys and girls. i consider this is a helpful forum for all of us who want to become cabin crew. I have been reading carefully all what you write.
What i would like to hear now from you is some advices or some sugestions about my doubt. In next October 30 there will be an open day in Sao Paulo-Brasil (first time in South America) and i am thinking to go there, i am bolivian, 31 years old, i am a student Pilot, i speak english, portugues and obviusly spanish, i live in Bolivia and i work for American Airlines as Security Agent, i have participated three times in Emirates selection process,(twice in Santa Cruz- Bolivia and one in Rio de Janeiro-Brasil) the three times i got the assesement day and twice i failed one stage before the final interview, but never got the final interview.
So, do you think guys that i would have any real chance to get the job with Etihad considering that i am 31 years old ??? do they take men in the same quantity that women?.
I ask you these because i live and work in Santa Cruz-Bolivia and as you imagine it is very expensive for me to travel to Sao Paulo for the open day and being separated in the first round, but obviusly i understand that is the risk that i would have to take to get hired, but what do you consider that is my real chance to get it, how many people do they take in each open day?, is the selection process in the same way as EK does? Does EY consider when you travel from a country to another to participate in the open day or it is the same as EK that they do not care about nothing and do you have any idea how many people they are going to take in Brazil or how many people they usually take because it is the first time in South America and there will be plans to make open days in other cities in South America such as EK does????
Do you know about people that was hired being 31 yeras old?? is that real? what do you suggest me, advice me??
I have said to myself that i wont give up until i get it, but i also want to be realistic to know about Etihad policy. if the open day were in my own city would be great, but it is not.
I will thank so much to hear about you people, you advices, if theres is a current EY cabin crew, please what do you think? i know i have many doubts and i will be very thanked with your answers, please
Thanks in advance and luck for everybody.

Languages are always good. As for your age, I can't really comment as I'm not aware of their upper age limit but I wouldn't worry too much about it. No, they don't take the same amount of men as women. This number is regulated by the government and is usually 80% women and 20% men.
 

They don't recruit a certain number in an open day. They take on the people they feel are suitable, hence no individual competition. If they feel that this open day is a success, they will probably come back and try other cities and countries as they definitely need crew.

 

Also travelling to another country to attend the open day. Perhaps they might consider it as you are eager but really not sure to be honest. People travel all over the world to attend interviews so it's nothing unusual.

 

Good luck!
LHR WW!

Number36, i really apreciate your comments, it is important for me to get another view point, i agree with you, to croos the world to participate in a open day is not unusual,.
Talking about 80 % women and only 20% men, wow that is hard, the oportunity is low, but as i sais it is a risk that i have to take. thanks Number36

Go for it! I wouldn't worry about your age. 31 is nothing and I'm pretty sure their upper age limit is higher than that. Break a leg!

Like I told you tiluchi,they used to cancel some of there interviews lately,so if there is no dates available on the website,it may be possible they have cancelled the plan or you have to wait untill the next date.Well as they say,"everythings happends for some reason",so it may be good for you,better than loosing money and hopes.Who knows next time is going to be your time so keep smiling.
Good luck next time.
None of my dreams are waiting down here,they are waiting up there
