Soulsound is teaming up with D.A.S. Audio to deliver a four-day seminar programme that will explore ‘Calibration & Design Techniques for Modern Sound Systems’. The programme, which is aimed at intermediate and experienced sound engineers, will be held at The Crypt, Christchurch Spitalfields, London.
It is my firm belief that many people are struggling to find sound engineering jobs because they simply don’t know how to ask nicely!
Joining organisations is a good place to start networking!
Gaining the Three C’s is a sure path to success – but you might need to give up some of your time to get there.
The summer festival season is almost upon us and actually for some it has already started! This is a great time of year to get a foot in the door work-wise.
As yet another request for work experience comes tumbling into the studio mailbox I am once again forced to let another hopeful engineer down. As a studio, we are too small a concern to support regular engineers besides myself and my business partner, Dave. And to be honest there isn’t even enough work around for just one of us to take a wage without lots of hard work.
It is my firm belief that many young people are struggling to find sound engineering jobs because their CVs aren’t up to scratch and they simply don’t know how to ask nicely! As
the owner of an agency that specialises in finding opportunities for engineers, I get sent dozens a week, and I peruse them all.
As a sound engineer, and in particular as a studio owner, I get a considerable number of job requests each month. These vary from general emails from colleagues letting me know that they are looking for work – usually having finished a long tour – to hopeful requests from young engineers looking for their first employment.
My mission with Soulsound is to help make people more employable by teaching things that often are impossible in the classroom, to give young engineers examples of success to aspire to, and to help jobbing engineers improve their skills.
