Those of you who are on my facebook will already know about this.....
I have decided that after 12 years working on the railway (1 year as customer host, 11 as conductor) it's time to change my career. I'm edging towards a new career path in aviation.
I have 2 choices from what I can see - cabin crew or ground staff.
I'm a 30 year old guy and have been in a customer facing role for my entire railway career, so I'm kinda hoping this will help me out. I also have a proven track record of remaining calm in emergency situations (I evacuated a train with 300 people on in under 5 minutes - on my own - when it caught fire in 2002).
I have also had to deal with someone jumping in front of my train as well (in 2010).
The conductor job is in a way sort of similar to cabin crew (I guess a few here will say "no it's not") so I was wondering what you guys thought of my idea?
Being 30 is not going to stop me is it??
Any thoughtful hints helpful
