Make use of your BA and offer a studio/busy engineer your services to work up their website and maintain it. Optimize the site to bring in more work the them (AND YOU). The SAE thing is a joke as far as using it to impress anyone that has the potential of offering you an opportunity.
Make yourself invaluable and you will secure a job.
It's hard work, BUT SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT.
There are so many that do not want to work hard.
