Man Natalie I feel like you're a broken record. I know it's hard but people need to realize that if you want something you need to go out and get it and research stuff! Things aren't going to get handed to you and there's no book on how to get in the music industry. If people are looking for a simple answer then I'm not sure if they truly want it that much. I give you props for taking your time to answer people's questions and helping them. I hope whatever career goals you're striving for happen

Yo it’s all good. I don’t mind answering people’s questions at all. If questions get super repetitive, I just won’t respond. Our community over here is generally fairly young, so not everybody has learned to go out and look for things on their own just yet, and I’m understanding about that. 

I do agree though— back in the day, if something interested me, I just went for it. 

The amount of people that ask questions that can easily be answered by just Googling are insane. This is the music industry! No one can get you a job or tell you exactly how to get one yourself. Research and connections are imperative! Go out and make something happen. Don't look to Natalie for all of your answers; find them yourself!

Thanks man. I couldn’t agree with this more. I love everyone on here, but my purpose is not to give you all of the answers. I can help guide you, but it’s true, a lot can be learned just by looking around on the internet. 

For the anon: I once took an internship at a venue without credit or pay and it was the most unprofessional staff I've ever worked with, so chances are, most internships without any benefit are going to be like that. The good internships require that you get school credit, so to anyone also asking about school, go! Unless you already have a job lined up after graduation, school is super important and helps get the good internships.

I don’t think internships (not for school credit) are necessarily going to be a waste of time. I’m interning at a venue right now and I’m doing it for school credit, but I know for a fact it wouldn’t be any different if I wasn’t doing it for credit. I think you just have to be really careful about what the circumstances are when your working for free so that your time isn’t wasted. And it happens— I’ve interned before, and realized a month in that I wasn’t learning anything and it was a waste of time. I just made moves and started a new internship so that I could make better use of my time. 

I want to become a choreographer for concerts and or someone who films concerts and photographs them. Where do I need to start? I'm 17 in the suburbs in north calli and going in to senior year.

Dude just do some research online to figure out how you can get involved with that kind of stuff. Look for people who are already doing what you want to do on a professional level and hit them up to ask how they first got started. With anything, remember that you don’t have to wait to get started. Just go out and look for ways to start doing what you love. 

Hey, I want to apply for The Syndicate but I was wondering since I have no experience in the industry and this would be my first job, do you think that would affect my chances of being hired? Also someone has let me know that they need campaigns in two cities, now I don't live in either one but I live 30 min. away and I would have transportation. Do you think that would as well affect my chances?

You have nothing to loose. I’d apply if it’s something you’re interested in and something you can feasibly see yourself doing.
