Record Producer

Until you "make it big," working in the music industry means long hours and little pay. Record producers are known to put in 20 hour days, and some projects even take months to finish. You will need technical proficiency in recording programs such as Logic or Protools, as well as basic understanding of several instruments. Having a strong network of connections is also important for gaining new clients.
