Back To what I meant to ask Aviation Experts and and Professionals:
I am a San Jose State University student, an aviation enthusiast and an Aviation Management Major, however I always ask myself am I doing the right thing? I know I Know, everyone tells me to follow your passion, but hell its about the money too, I want to be able to do something I love and have a good living, however lately, being a profficient student, I am yet to to be able to find an entry level position at Field Based Operator, or an Airline. I do well in my classwork, and am an active student in student life as well. I know living in the Silicon Valley there is a lot of competition for simple jobs like gates agents or ticketing agents, but when I fly I see utter losers who are behind that desk, and sometimes I feel like I know more than they do! And still, I have not gotten one answer for internship, or career opportunities. SInce my degree is a hybrid program between the College of Engineering, and College of Business(CoB) ( overlooked and administered by the the College of Engineering!) I am better connected to the CoB, and I have made connections with professors, and am now appointed as a student assistant in the Plenary Commission for CoB's events. So I am not really a loser, but often I feel like I am
So with my "sob" story, I ask is it feasible to major in such a niche field of study and have a career opportunity? And if so with an aviation management degree, what are the correct steps, or steps to be established as a professional in the industry?
