I will need 1000 hours to fly as a First Officer. How can I achieve that?

There are two kind of airlines, the first kind hires new and inexperienced pilots while the second kind hires only experienced pilots. When your will start your career you can only apply to the first kind of airlines. The ones you were looking (for example with minimum requirement of 1000 hours flight experience) is obviously the second kind of airlines. All pilots around the world start their career with maximum 200 to 250 hours flight experience, so they have to apply first to airlines who hire inexperienced pilots.
