Why You Should Get a Job in This Industry

Are Music Industry Jobs
as Hard to Get as You’ve Heard?

Before we answer that, Music Industry Jobs needs to ask you:

Are you passionate about music? Do you feel music…talk about music…really, really want to work in the music business?

No matter what the economy is like, music will always be a part of our lives. And someone needs to create it, record it, produce it, promote it, and perform it. That someone could be you! Music Industry Jobs can help.

Just imagine…

You’re working in a world surrounded by music…you could be reviewing CDs, changing out a microphone, talking to band managers, editing a music cue, placing songs in a movie, or doing one of a million other music functions in the music industry.

It’s not always glamorous. There’s a lot of hard work involved. Sometimes really long hours too. But if you are passionate about music, have motivation and lots of determination, then you too can get a job in the music business.

Our goal at Music Industry Jobs is to help you find and get a job in the music industry. I’ll be honest–you may have to work for free at first (AKA music internships). But as my friend Ken Evoy says “do what you love and the money will follow.”

Is it easy?

Not usually, but with the internet it’s a whole lot easier than it was 14 years ago when I entered the music industry. I remember going to the local library and finding only a few very outdated magazines for the specific area I wanted to work in. I couldn’t even find ONE directory. When I did find some industry listings I spent months on the phone before I even got an interview. Thank goodness I got the job! It just takes some persistence and a lot of determination.

You, on the other hand, have so many more resources available for finding music jobs–all with just the click of a mouse. There are so many different opportunities and areas to work in that it almost makes one’s head spin! The purpose of this site is to guide you through this music industry jungle and provide you with the information you’ll need to succeed in getting a job in the music industry.
