Right now I work on the ramp at cmh and have for 3 years, but am looking to move on to a higher paying job. I would like to stay within aviation, as I have a degree in Aviation Management, but I'm not sure what else is out there. Ideally I would love to work at an airline, but at this point would take other jobs within the industry. Im just wondering from others what else is out there?

Keep an eye out for a Customer Service Agent (CSA) job at CMH. I'm sure there are positions open every now and then. And with a CSA job you should make more than being a ramper. Also, from there you can move up through the airline and possibly even into management at some point.

Check out airport operations. I interned at TEB for the ops department and loved it. You get to work with everything at the airport, are around all of the airlines (well I wasnt at teb but at any other airport I would be) and you get to do a lotta cool stuff. Pay is pretty good, many start in the mid thirties before bonus and over time and supervisors at major airports can make up to 100,000. the AAAE website usually has job postings for it and many airports offer relocation (I have a friend who applied for one at some airport in hawaii, they paid housing and 45k a yr. sick. good luck.

Does your airline have any station manager or ramper manager openings?

I was talking with one of the TSA agents at my local airport who just had a son graduate from the same college I go to. He majored in Aviation Management and minored in Flight Ops (I'm the other way around) and he just got a job with US as a market pricing analyst. As it sounds, he looks at all the routes and figures out what price the airline should charge for a certain segment. He also has a good friend who analyzes new routes and makes suggestions about what new routes might make the airline money. There are many jobs you can do with an airline that don't involve being out on the ramp, especially if you have a college degree in Aviation Management.

I think this is the best option. I have a friend that is about to graduate from SIU with his masters in Aviation Management, and there's a good position in management that is open for him in FL at a small airport. The pay is pretty decent, too, from what I understand.

You actually have a degree, so you might want to consider the TSA. You would probably be a sure bet to become a supervisor in a few years and I have heard the money isn't bad. Plus, it's government so its more secure than working at an airline that could dissapear next week with more days off, better benefits, and you won't be asked to give back a third of your paycheck every time the market takes a downturn.
