Common Key Skills and Action Verbs for Flight Attendant Resumes

In 2018, Delta Airlines received over 150,000 applications for only 1,200 coveted flight attendant openings, and they were not the only airline that experienced this massive response to job postings. Although statistics like these may make your chances of landing a job as a flight attendant appear unlikely, don’t give up just yet! Simply getting your resume in front of a hiring manager narrows your competition pool tremendously.

Reality is, most resumes are never viewed by hiring managers. This is because of a human resources tool known as an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). When a resume is submitted, the ATS scans the document for specific keywords and phrases that match skills and character traits they desire in a candidate. To pass the ATS scan and ensure your resume reaches the airline’s hiring manager or recruiter, fill your resume with all of these keywords that honestly describe you. The more of these keywords you include on your resume, the more likely it is that a hiring manager will see it and call you to schedule an interview.

Tips for Writing a Better Flight Attendant Resume

Don’t undersell your flight attendant soft skills

Interpersonal communication, customer service, problem solving, and attentiveness are highly sought-after traits in flight attendant candidates — especially for individuals looking to take on higher level positions, such as Flight Attendant Supervisors and Base Managers. Be sure your resume calls attention to at least one of your outstanding soft skills that’s essential as a flight attendant or flight attendant manager.

Write an eye-catching professional profile

An impressive professional profile that summarizes your experience, achievements, and skills is an extremely effective way to differentiate yourself from other job candidates. Make sure your profile focuses on the most important accomplishments of your career, quantifying where possible.

Example #1


Professional and attentive senior flight attendant with 5+ years of experience, an average annual review score of 48.5 out of 50, and a growing reputation for effectively calming flight-phobic passengers during take-off, turbulence, and landing.


Upbeat flight attendant with a couple years of experience. People person who enjoys travel.

How to Align Your Resume With the Job Description

As the travel industry continues to grow, so do opportunities for careers in the air. In fact, jobs for flight attendants are projected to grow by 21% over the next ten years according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hiring managers look for candidates whose resumes mirror the skills and experience detailed in their job descriptions. By including work experience and related skills on your resume, you help yourself stand out even more from other flight attendant applicants.

If you aren’t 100% positive which of your skills and experiences you should emphasize, reread the job description and highlight or underline the requirements for the position that are listed first or mentioned more than once. Next, scan your resume. Does it effectively communicate how you can fill the needs the airline says it has? If not, take the words you underlined or highlighted and find ways to naturally add as many as you can into your professional experience or profile. Try to be specific about achievements and impressive personal attributes. As you do this, be sure your final resume accurately shares how you meet the position’s needs well.
