As a long term contestant who hasn't made even Alternate, I can confirm that you can break into the industry by building a board presence, learning and showing a work ethic and willingness to learn that encourages 3PP to give you the opportunities you need.
Once you get that opportunity, by working hard and trying your best to impress, more opportunities will follow.
I have this week completed the first draft of my first paid gig and the 3pp has already approached me for more work! So it is possible to become a freelancer without even placing in this competition.
The fact you made alternate gives you a boost, so make those approaches for work, write for Wayfinder, for PF Society scenarios open call, build your portfolio of example work.
You are off to a good start, each and every one of you, alternate and Top 32, but now the ball is in your court as to whether you pursue further or not.
The ball wont come to you, you have to chase it!
