Hi. I previously made a thread like this as a start to set a path for my future career. Now I know more in specific what I want to do, and how I would like to pursue it. But again, I have a couple concern and questions I would like answers for... After looking at these two threads... (Dead Link Removed) - About Marketing (Dead Link Removed) - About A&R I have a few questions for those 2 topics and a few questions for my own. About the A&R one, the answer for that thread was yes and no. Yes if you don't know anyone, and No if you do. What ways are there for beginners to get to know these kind of people? These aren't the kind of jobs you can find off the newspaper right? So how do people usually apply for these kind of jobs? At a label I mean. Another thing worrying about me is... See I live in Canada, and in Canada... Universities are seen as something far more superior than Colleges. I know that's not true, but that's how people here see. And with that in mind, I have two choices. 1. I can enter a University and study business 2. I can... Somehow MAYBE borrow a ... whole lot of money and goto Berklee and study business there Which road should I take? I would like to become like a marketer or A&R or something similiar to those in a record label. Like, people who... Plans out how an Artist can be "sold", working on promotions and stuff. If that's not what marketing or A&R already is. Getting to a University is an easier path for me, since I won't have to move out of the country to a place I'm not familiar with. Since I don't have that kind of money to start with. But if I study at a University and just study a business program, will I be able to find jobs such as those I described? With Berklee or something I can probably make a few friends who can errr.... Maybe have connections to something, but going to a school depending on that is kinda risky, plus the conditions I face if I goto Berklee... Is there a way I can goto a University here in Canada and still be able to find jobs like that here in North America? How about other countries? Thanks.
