What is the best possible civilian employment shortcut to get a pilots license and build flight time?

I was thinking of trying to get a technology job or support position with a smaller cargo or aviation company that could help me become a pilot by allowing me to build flight hours. I would guess many of the pilots that work for these companies are certified flight instructors anyway. This way I could potentially have a job and get some help on the pilot licensing side. Any suggests or ideas? My home state is Florida and I can also apply in the New York area.

Definitely not wise to try and take shortcuts. You can work a civilian job in the meantime while you are taking your helicopter training. If you complete your training, you may be able to become a flight instructor yourself which is one way to quickly build up hours.
