Seniority in pilots means more hours flying. Which means the most experienced. However, right seat does most of the actual flying.
In a emergent situation. I would want the guy on the left in control. 0.02.
Back on topic. There are many openings. Especially in private transport. It doesn't have to be a jet. You could fly a king air or even a CESSNA 210. The pilot of our local airports air taxi stated he makes more flying the king air than he did as a 747 pilot for AirTran.
