i did a music technology course then a media tech course, i am a broadcast engineer at a TV comp now, this involves both video and sound engineering,
but at the same time i was fortunate, there are lads who did better then me at uni still hunting for jobs 2 years on, i was put forward by my tutor...even tho i did well and i know my stuff the term "not what you know its who ya know" springs to mind.
i would get on a course and then pester companies to take you on as work experience for a few weeks at a time, get experience in the field you want to work in, you prob wont get paid but you cant put a price on experince on your CV. all the lads i work with have done it and i did it n all. it will also get you contacts.
work at it and it will come mate.
working in a record shop would b the first thing that comes to mind........or may b goin to college to learn music (engineerin ect) or doing both.
