Like most careers, a good background in the industry is very important. A few friends of mine are in marketing at Southwest Airlines and they have had a true passion for the their company, the aviation industry, and to share their experiences. The airlines in particular have been pretty cyclical so sometimes it's more difficult to get a specific job there than other times.

Jose’s Answer

While specific business knowledge acquired via marketing, finance and other business classes might make it a bit easier to get an entry level position in a commercial setting like doing Sales or marketing, a key ingredients are your mindset in terms of connecting with others via empathy, leadership that you might have exhibited by holding positions in some of your school groups, and excellent grades so you come across as the winner that you are.

nancy’s Answer

Right now airlines are looking for young people to go into sales. A degree from a college or University is the best start. Your degree can be in any field from Math/computer science to acting. It all works. The hours are long but I can tell you that I've done it for 43 years and I have loved every minute.
