Yes, there are. And that's why it's such a competitive market and the one looking better be on top of their game
in every way. Honestly, this is a tough industry, although I don't know of any easy ones today. But if it's not what you really want, what you're ready to sacrifice for, what you're preparing yourself for, then it may not be right for you. When we were taking courses we'd talk to a lot of students and ask why? Many of them had no concept
of the industry or jobs and a lot of the reasons led us to believe they had trouble ahead.
It's not an easy life. Very hard to have relationships. Hard work. And then you see those who are excellent, professional, and experienced but are now jobless as in so many other professions. A huge decrease in the number of positions in the industry over the last six years while an increase in those wanting in.
