They are responsible for providing safety and comfort to passengers for the duration of the flight to a nearby city or a foreign country. This position can provide an exciting career and lifestyle for the right type of person. However, it's more difficult to land a job as a private jet flight attendant than it is to work for a national airline.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Obtain at least a high school diploma or GED. Private jet companies like to hire educated flight attendants, so having some college experience or a degree will increase your chances of landing a job. It's also an added benefit to learn a foreign language and have training in a medical field or experience as a firefighter or police officer, to handle emergencies on flights.

  2. 2

    Get some experience in the customer service industry. Upscale private jet companies often prefer to hire candidates who have worked in a five-star fine dining setting or have taken a culinary class. This is because flight attendants are responsible for preparing food on flights and serving them to passengers. Any customer service experience can be helpful.

  3. 3

    Complete a flight attendant training course. These courses are offered at the hub facilities of major airlines in big cities, and they can last from one to three months. Passing the exam at the end of the training allows candidates to be licensed as flight attendants.

  4. 4

    Get the proper documents in order. You will need to have a passport and a social security card to work as a private jet flight attendant. Apply for these, if you don't already have them.

  5. 5

    Present yourself as a responsible and mature professional. Dress in a business suit for any interviews. Unusual piercings, tattoos, and outlandish hairstyles are looked down upon in this field and you will have to get rid of them or hide them to work as a flight attendant.

Tips and warnings

  • When considering this career, make sure that your family situation and other personal responsibilities will allow for you to be away from home often.
