Yes, and many do very well, although it's a tough business. But success depends upon your personal abilities, training, talent, work ethic, personality, and passion. Some students start their own businesses and others work for established companies. Most often, students from film and television schools begin their careers with entry level jobs, but their student experience is a vital factor that employers consider. If the employee does well in the new job, there's an excellent chance for advancement. When looking for a training school, always avoid any school that guarantees job placement or well-paid employment when you graduate.
