Since you have a bachelor's degree, you might be able to squeeze into a position at a major, but that is a rare exception, and not the rule. For the most part, the major carriers require experience, and there are several ways to earn that experience.
1) The regionals:
- Yes, everyone and their mother dogs the regionals, but without them, many cities wouldn't see service. Period. Depending on the carrier, the training, pay, benefits, etc., can range from horrid, to beating the majors, and often times, they are located in out-of-the-way areas, so the cost of living tends to match the income.
- Places like Ryan International, Omni, etc. These guys fly heavy metal all over the world to more places than the majors can ever dream of going. However, since they are more-often-than-not classified as supplemental, you don't get the 100% dispatch experience that you could get elsewhere. (But, from what I understand, hiring companies understand this, and don't fret too much about it if they see a supplemental on the resume.)
- The big guys like FedEx and UPS, well, they require both a degree and experience, so they're out, but there are smaller players that you could look at. (I can't think of any at the moment.) These guys operate as domestic and flag, so you WILL get 100% dispatch experience, plus heavy and international experience.
