According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, (http://www.bls.gov/oes/2008/may/figure31.pdf) film and video editors have a better chance of finding employment in metropolitan areas. That means if you go to school in New York City then you have a competitive advantage of finding employment in your field compared to someone that lives outside the city. Location after graduation can be a major factor in finding employment in your field. Think twice before moving away from NYC after graduation. Either way, develop a game plan for career success with your career services advisor before you graduate.
