Hello folks :))

I just wonder if it's a hard nut to crack to get a job in music industry in Poland.
Does anybody know where the heart of music industry located in Poland? Maybe Warsaw?
Do you think it's possible for non-Polish speaker to find a job as an sound mixing and mastering engineer?
I don't speak Polish. I know only few words. I speak English and Japanese.
Or else do you guys know if there's a job for non-Polish speakers? I mean what jobs are available for non-Polish speakers in Poland?

I tried to find some info about it but I couldn't find any. Szkoda.
I'll be very happy if some of you give me some info!

Dzięki!

I don't have good news for you. Poland's music industry is very weak. It's hard to get any job as music technician, mastering engineer, whatever. You must employ yourself, find a contracts, have great connections. Yet without language it's more unfriendly business. Yes, if you are talented, communicative, hardworking, you can easily earn more and even much more than the national average in Poland, but incomes are iregular, often unpredictable. And the necessity to invest in hardware / software - it's all so expensive and you have yet to remember that this work requires continuous effort and totally unpredictable working hours. Decent quality device whether it's a preamp, sound compressor, equalizer or a converter costs a lot, so to maintain a family and still be able to invest - you really have to strive. This is a difficult profession, guarantees that a person will not be bored, and nothing known from regular job does not correlate on the sound engineer profession. It's an individual professional path at one's peril.

Not a chance.

Basically nothing that is worth moving for. Sorry.
