Also would you go for a job with slightly lower pay and still be involved in aviation someway
That is exactly what I'm doing right now. It's actually even worse, given that so far I've only been able to find short term/seasonal contracts (very few long-term full-time positions in my field of work at the moment) The pay isn't that
bad, but the city is expensive and it means moving every other six months, which takes its toll financially, but I couldn't take a job I didn't like just for the extra money.
I don't know what the situation is where you are, but around here you don't work in aviation for the money.
As I gain experience and build up my resume I might eventually manage to shoot for better paid positions (Switzerland
), but anything that wouldn't require going through a metal detector in the morning and wearing a high viz vest all day just wouldn't be a proper "Job" to me...
