Online PR News – 28-January-2013 – Surbiton – Many people are drawn to jobs in aviation, as it is perceived to be an interesting and even some may say glamorous. However, with any jobs there are positives and negatives and this is true, of course, in the case of aviation jobs.
Aviation jobs at entry level cover many different areas of the business, but typically to be successful in obtaining an entry level job you should be a strong communicator and possess strong motivations.
There are entry level positions in Aircraft Maintenance where you may obtain a job as a maintenance support assistant with little or no previous experience.
If your heart is set on becoming a pilot then a position in the operations department may be a stepping stone to achieving your dream.
Aviation jobs have been on something of a roller cost over the last years with much restructuring going on, however, in the background the industry keeps growing and in some countries the growth is very significant.
People will continue to want to travel to visit and to explore the world, so to be connected to such a dynamic environment is the motivation for many people to seek an aviation job.
The perception that pilots are on huge pay scales is something of a myth, until you reach the top of industry, the salaries can be very humble, with pilots working for commuter airlines barely achieving the minimum wage.
Possibly the only industry which achieves higher salaries is the oil industry in general but across the huge ranges of jobs are significant variations.
Aviation jobs break into two obvious groups, those that are based on the ground and those that are involved with the aircraft operations, for example, pilots and cabin crew , the role of flight engineer is almost a thing of the past now with very few aircraft still having a flight engineering station.
Aviation jobs as cabin crew are more plentiful but the competition is very significant and the salary not so high, but as a way of traveling and seeing the world can be very popular, lots of considerations of course long haul versus short haul, the time you spend away from home etc.
Aviation jobs in Maintenance are plentiful and varied and allow people to enjoy a very satisfying career in many different areas and disciplines within the Aircraft Maintenance Environment.
Aviation jobs are not only to be enjoyed working for airlines and maintenance companies. You may in fact seek a job as an Air Traffic Controller. This is a very specialized job putting a significant demand on the job holder.
Whatever aviation job you decide is right for you; if you put your mind to it and work with a steady focus you will usually achieve a result that you will be happy with.
Good luck in your aviation career!
