    Hi all!

    I didn't know which forum to post this topic in, so mods, move as you see fit, just send me a PM so I can track it back!

    I'm new here, and in fact, new to the workd of sound as pro's see it - and I'm a complete ameteur in this world! However, this is something which I want to pursue as a career - now comes the interesting part. I live in India, and the only way to make it big in sound is go to the indian film city and do sound for them - which is NOT what i want to do! So i'm considering a sound engg degree from JMC australia. Now assuming i'm done with a bachelors degree in sound fmo the said institution, and i passed with pretty good grades, worked my ass off, but after that - what are the job oppurtunities like? Since this forum is full of pros, some advice would be greatly appreciated as I'm currently clueless, and in bad need of direction!

    Few and far between. You will have to start from the bottom, probably as a gopher.

    Because digital recording is widely available, large studios catering to musicians are not profitable.

    if you want to get HIRED doing audio most of the jobs ARE in the TV/Movie industry.

    Having a degree may or may not get you a job. It's more about your portfolio, and word of mouth.

    Get a job buy your own gear.
