Default 500 Hour Job Opportunities

I was wondering if I could get the communities feedback and recommendations in regards to any jobs that may open up around 500 hours. I do have my B.S. in aviation science, don't know if that will help at all this early on, or it's just a matter of hours until ATP.

Thanks ahead of time for all your help and consideration.

500 hours, and other 135 VFR PIC minimums will get you a scenic flying job somewhere around the Canyon.
Westwind, American Aviation West etc.

Not everyone should be a CFI...not everyone wants to be a CFI.

This is true. Forcing people that 'don't want to/won't be a good' CFI to CFI is a bad idea. This whole idea that CFIing is the only way to build hours is flawed. It might be the easiest way to build hours, but when you have a whole bunch of CFI's that don't care about their jobs and are only doing it to build time the end result is a new crop of pilots that isn't up to par. Bad CFI's create bad pilots, it isn't fair to the students that are spending money, and it isn't good for this industry as a whole.

This is an unintended consequence of the 1500 hour rule.
