If your life were a TV show what would it be? Been There, Done That.<br/> During my airline career I survived 3 furloughs, 2 bankrupticies with 2 different companys, and endured a number of base closures. Just when I thought things were smoothing out, along came September 11, 2001.<br/> During one of my furloughs, I worked as an aircraft cleaner. The polite term was &quot; Aircraft Appearance&quot;. Somehow that doesn&#39;t adequately describe the job, which not only involved cleaning inside and out, but also included &quot;Lav Patrol&quot;. That&#39;s right, I went from driving airplanes to driving the &quot;Poop Mobile&quot;. Hey, don&#39;t laugh, it paid more than I made as a copilot on probation. I guess you might say I really wanted to stay in aviation.<br/> If you&#39;ve been in the aviation business, you know how turbulent things get. Few businesses are as severely impacted by weak economic conditions, and also to fuel prices, as the airlines, and the aviation community in general. Airlines take a one-two punch when the economy goes south and fuel prices go north.<br/> When times get rough, furloughs, layoffs, base closures, pay cuts, and other disruptions, are aimed right at those that can least afford them, those most junior on the seniority list. When things get really rough, bankruptcy, total shutdown,and liquidation, the senior employees see their lifestylye and retirement crash and burn.<br/> If your job goes away today, what is your plan for tommorrow?<br/> There are ways to prepare for any disruption in your career. Avoiding turbulence is the best way to keep your career ride smooth. But sometimes there is nothing you can do, &quot; __it&quot; just happens. Planning for it and knowing what to do when &quot;__it&quot; happens,is the best way to keep your career on track.<br/> There are ways to avoid becoming the &quot;Poop Mobile&quot; driver.
