    In theory, that would be a good method.

    I, on the other hand, might upgrade my methods minor to a second major.

    I don't know why anyone would want to be a sound person unless s/he really truly loved it. The due paying is pretty arduous. Long hours, lame pay, no benefits, and isolating, sporadic work. Not to mention musicians
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I got paid $60 per night and worked about four or five hours, four nights a week. 90+% of the music was awful, though. Although there were some benefits (i.e. free beer), the music and musicians canceled things out more often than not.

    Sound guys don't get groupies?

    get a job

    you have a degree in a real major. not some fluff degree where you end up working at Barnes & Noble. get a job. live frugally. save and invest.

    the idea that you'll find a job you love is B.S. Its a job not a hobby.

    if you are really unhappy as an accountant then take some night classes trying some new stuff out. but don't quit your job!

    one thing you don't want to do is screw around now then be 45 years old, broke & find out you aren't happy. this is the classic mid life crisis. it will happen. now if you have $500,000 saved for retirement by this time it will go a lot smoother.
