Odds of Getting In

DJs usually have two careers, so what does that tell you? Remember, a launching pad should always be soft enough for crash landings.

Unless you can find a niche like talk radio or alternative, news, or public radio, you should consider thinking twice about jumping into this career. It's tough to find a place, and even if you make it, it's going to be a low-to-mid-thirties-salary sort of make it. We wish we had better news for you but, uh, we don't.
