Exclamation Sink or swim in a tough industry

Hi, my name is Jeremy. I just moved to the bay area a few months ago. I'm just making use of every means possible to meet other people in the industry, and gain more experience. I'm a recent graduate of an audio engineering school, but I believe school can only teach you so much. The rest you have to learn out in the real world. So I am extending my helping hand. Anybody have any suggestions as to where to start in this business?

Welcome to the forum. Check in often as you will learn from other experence here. What are your objectives? Producer? Engineer? A&R (please god no!)? Assistant co vice jr. runner trainee?

You seem to have the right attitude about recording school. Don't leave there until you KNOW (and I mean KNOW, not some memorized crap) Signal Flow, Tape Calibration, DAW Calibration, DAW basics (at least the basics) and as many consoles as possible (automation being a key point). You have the luxury to learn a crapload of stuff that busy engineers DON'T have time to. Take advantage of this as much as possible.
