Since I'm not from Canada, I don't really know how things are over there. But from the experience of some friends, acting as extra in commercials is a good way to start getting contacts that work in the field. You could try that as a way to jiggle your way in
Haven't you try to work online, near the job you have? It not so hard and you can work from everywhere you are. I have some friends that are working online on different platforms. I'm thinking to do the same thing. As they told me they do not earn so much to pay some taxes, but at the same time, it is a plus to their budget. They send me a blog from where they inspired themselves. Now I'm trying to find the best job for me. I want to try it, to see if I'll manage to make money online. Hope that will work from the beginning 'cause I give up very quickly lol. What do you think guys, would you like to work online?
