The student after the course can start working as a resident Dj in a nightclub, Pub, Bar, Cafe or a Hotel. This works like any other job where you have a regular job, Fixed Salary, Holidays and an expense tab. Apart from Being a resident one can also look forward for freelancing and start playing in mobile setups or play a session in clubs as a guest Dj. In freelancing the chances of having a better pay, making good profile and exposure to new audience and venue are much higher than compared to residency. However its ones personal choice how they want to go ahead in their career.
Fame is also very important aspect of a DJs life as this is how you improve your profile and pay scale. Once a DJ is famous then he or she can charge anything what they feel is right for them.
