How long does it take most people to get their first gig?

I have heard it can be pretty hard and I find it hard enough already to find myself on the website, so I was wondering what the general expectation is before I get my first gig.


It takes time to get your first order, some people get in their first week, some people get their order after 3 months. I got my first orders after 2 months of joining.
