I have read many of the archived posts about airline jobs - here is my deal.
I'm finishing University in the Spring and am really interested in getting a job with the airlines. I have always wanted to be a pilot but am concerned that my vision (which cannot be corrected to 20/20) is going to get in the way. I am therefore looking at my options. I did some research and Aircraft dispatch caught my eye. Since I am interested in a position with authority and responsibility, I figure this might be a good job for me.
Can anybody with some background in this field comment? What kind of opportunities are there for entry level positions in this field? Also, I am a world traveller and have been since I could stand - I WANT TO TRAVEL AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE - so any job with travel benefits (Cheap flights!!) would be more important to me than 10k more a year for example.
Any insight would be very helpful. I need to know where to start.. Who do I contact, what do I do, anything....
