Postby Xenos; Thu Nov 20, 2014 11:03 am Looking for full-time work. Sound design-related. Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

Hi guys,

I'm looking for full-time work as an actual employee for another company, either an in-house sound designer in the music industry, or a foley/sound effects artist in the film or game industries. I've contacted some of the synth developers I freelance for, but there are currently no positions open. Does anyone out there know someone I could contact who might have an actual _job_ available, or maybe point me in the right direction? If you're not comfortable posting on the forum, you could PM me or email me at Xenos77@frontier.com.

As many of you know, I run the online store Xenos Soundworks. I plan to keep the store as a part-time side venture and creative outlet, though I feel I would be much happier, less stressed, and more productive working for someone else full-time. My strength is in sound synthesis, sampling, foleys, field recording, mixing and mastering, NOT marketing, graphic design, sales, web design or songwriting. I feel that those weaknesses have caused my brand not to be taken very seriously by those not familiar with my work. As I am unable to afford the investments in graphic design, web design and MP3 demos that would present my products more palatably to new visitors, there isn't much I can do about it. I want to be able to focus mainly on what I am good at, without worrying about marketing, sales, product presentation, etc. I feel working as an employee for another company in a related field would accomplish that.

I have been running the online store for 5 years, having built it on my own from the ground up, and starting with absolutely nothing. I feel that that experience would help set me apart from other candidates as I would be better able to understand things from an employer's perspective, having a better understanding of what it actually takes to run a business. Everything I learned was largely self-taught, and I know that the ability to take initiative in such a way is a marketable skill that prospective employers look for. Sound design/sound effects is my passion and I want to be able to make a decent living doing that. My work has been used on 2 of Chris Brown's tunes, Ace Hood's "Luv Her", and others, which I am very proud of, but the financial rewards for my efforts over the last 5 years have been very modest. I feel it's time for me to take the next step and find full-time work in a job that will allow me to utilize my skills, while having the security and predictability of a regular paycheck.

If you are either a developer of synths or videogames, involved in the film industry, an established creator of samples and loops, or involved in another field that needs someone with my skills, please contact me. I would be willing to relocate, even overseas, if needed. If you happen to know someone I could contact, that would be extremely helpful as well. Thank you for reading :).
