great jobs for record collectors.

Recommended Posts

So i was wondering if anyone out there has a job that is just perfect for a collector?

 

Maybe you work for an artist, or play in a band, or even just intern for a label... 

or maybe you just steal from the post office.

 

I didn't get into collecting until a couple years ago, but for the past 10 years I have worked in the music industry.  Between playing in a band, being a merchandise manager for other artists, tour manager / guitar tech for various tours, and even working at hot topic in my early 20s.  

 

All of these occupations helped me score some pretty sweet records.

I work in a record store, and it's really hard not to give into the thought "hey I could use this for my collection" whenever someone brings in some stuff to sell or trade. It's also not too busy most days that I am at work, so it's pretty easy to browse here for POs and good deals while I am working..and spend more money than I am making in a day.

Same gig as Olsvik,  

I work in an independent record store / pub that sells new vinyl. I usually work days when we get our shipments so I get the opportunity to snatch up any items that interest me before they hit the floor and make orders for customers and myself. Employees get around 30% off depending on the wholesale price so yeah.. my small apartment has gotten significantly smaller after working there for a few years..
