Looking to become an assistant

Hello guys,

I am starting to strongly consider writing out and apply for a Mix engineer assistant job. But before I start writing out. I would like to hear you guys opinion.

I have a bachelor in Sound design, and since I graduated, I started freelance besides working full time (repairing apple products).
I have been fortuned and have sniped some midsize names here in Denmark (Go Go Berlin, and Lydmor of latest).
So saving up money and getting some credits, I would like to try the life of an assistant.

I Have also worked as an assistant at a recording studio in Denmark, and I would be open for a recording assistant role, but my skills are not as high level as in mixing.
I am seeking outside Denmark, because the workload in the studios of Denmark is quite low, because of the country's small size.

So any advice, for a wannabe assistant ??

Hi man,

What got me into most of the studios I have worked in was not to apply for an assistant job.

What works best is a trick I call the "Coffee technique", where you ask someone who works in a studio out for a coffee and asks questions about them.

This can lead to pretty cool opportunities because you are making it all about them and this, in turn, can make them interested in you and eventually help you get into the industry.

If you are interested in reading more about this topic feel free to Google Your Audio Solutions (Im not allowed to link to it) and read some articles there

Hope that helps!
