Work Conditions

I want to play punk.

Punk is loud so I might go deaf.

I can last, probably.

Salary

Google says 37,889 but thats really not something you can calculate.

The members of Green Day are millionaires. The men of Dance Gavin Dance are very much not millionaires. Same job, different salary.

Education Background

Nope. You don't need one. I'm going to get one because my mom wants me to, but you don't need a college education. It's good to know what you're talking about, and especially useful if you want to be a music historian.

Career Ladder

Nope. There is no career ladder. You make your career. Make more music, become more famous. There's not a set pathway.

Employment Outlook

Punk isn't alive right now, but it's being reborn currently.

There is always a new for original bands.

Advantages

I'm crazy passionate about this career. It's not 9 to 5, which I despise.

Disadvantages

Punk's dead.

I live in the middle of nowhere, which means I will have a lot more trouble getting out there.
