I'm 47, trying to resurrect my career as an editor, and failing miserably. For a variety of reasons, I moved back to Connecticut from LA in 2016 after working in post for 7 years. The idea was to get a job in New York. Even Fairfield county in CT has quite a bit going on. To date, I have not been able to get one editing job in NYC, and CT has been mostly unprofessional, and loaded with scammers. I'm back waiting tables. I haven't done that since my twenties. I'm seriously thinking about hanging it up.
