So, basically

I compose movie score music, I can write it quite fast and all. I can record it and distribute it. I can record it in very high quality, it will sound realistic and all.

But, I'm just wondering, how can one get a job as that?

Having connections is pretty important. Also, get yourself out there. Put up recordings on whatever sites people use today. Having talent is pretty vital, unless you're Danny Elfman or something.

You mean I should just write some demos of my work as an advertising?

Exactly, make yourself a soundcloud/myspace/facebook/whatever page and upload some of your work and make it listen to people on forums and people you know. It's not easy and it's a long process.

Should I make full songs, or just short demos of what I can do?

How else are you gonna get your music heard?

Gotta advertise your product, let them know you're worth something.

Get some samples of your work together and hire an agent to get you gigs. A good agent will know people in the business and be able to get you jobs writing for shows, movies, etc.
