some info and advice...
you will probably have to start at the bottom, unless you know someone who can get you into a good position, otherwise you will probably have to go up the latter like most ppl.
its tough out here in LA (not sure if you are here or elsewhere) but very competitive. the way i started is by figuring out exactly what i wanted to do in post. i wanted to go into advertising; trailers, commercials, etc. Golden Trailer Awards
is a great place to find local trailer houses in LA. what i did was went through the entire list and emailed every place asking for employment. finally one place hired me as a runner or PA. its crap work but you move up quickly, usually within a year or so. next is vault and/or machine room followed by assistant editing and then editing.
also, don't try to jump directly into editing or assistant editing as your first gig, you may be lucky and find a small place, that won't pay much and you can do it, but i'd recommend the normal route.
after getting some experience around town, market yourself as a freelance assistant editor, which i am currently doing. starting out you could pull in $1,500/week and gradually increase that once you gain much more experience. but be careful, as freelancers don't have taxes taken out, so u need to put away for that during tax time.
my current goal is to get into the editors guild; once you are part of the union, not only do u get to work on big budget films (majority of big films; independent or not, require you to be in the union) great health insurance and about $30/hr. you can check out https://www.editorsguild.com/index.cfm?
for more info on that stuff.
if you would like a recommendation; u can PM me. i don't really know u but seen some of ur work and u seem like a good guy.
