How long did it take you to get established and start working as an AC

I really want to work in the camera dept. I have contacted basically every rental house through email. Have had a couple interviews at Camtec for a driver position but still nothing. Next I am going to go to the rental houses in person and hand them my resume. During my down time I have also been reading up on cameras, as well as working on small shoots on the weekends whenever possible.
I understand that it takes time, persistence, networking, hard work just wanted to know if anyone else cared to share their experiences on this matter.

"So I moved to LA about 8 Months ago. I have ACed a few small things but as of now I have been working at a TV Production company as a PA ...... anyone else cared to share their experiences on this matter."
I highly recommend making a visit to Clairmont Camera in Burbank and meeting with Alan Albert.
He may not have any openings, but if he's impressed with you he will keep your resume on file and may very well get back to you.
Being open to moving to Alburqueque, Toronto or Vancouver will be a plus - make sure you have your passport up to date.
all the best,
