The Ultimate Guide to Video Game Degrees and Careers

Nice title I wish I had written it but alas I did not... Jimmy Atkinson from the OEDb that's "Online Education Database" sent me an email today with the link to the well written article by Bradley Schenck on this topic... Bradley as you may now was the Designer for "The Labryinth" and also former Art Director for the Dreamers Guild...

The conclusion of the article is something I knew from being a musician for so many years and working in the graphics industry for so long... "There is Stress" that goes a long with these jobs and usually there is no way around it, if you can get in touch with people in the industry and see what they have to say first hand...

"Conclusion
Perhaps the ultimate guide to video game degrees and careers is to inform you that you can burn out in this industry just like any other industry. This is especially true in gaming, where many companies that are here today are gone tomorrow. The larger and more stable companies aren't devoid from this stress as they attempt to produce the next hit video game constantly."

Here's the link to the entire article, enjoy... Read more...

Now that we're on this subject I have a few links that were not in the article you should also check out if you already have the qualifications...

1. Game Recruiter.

2. Game Jobs.

3. Video Game Yellowpages.

4. GIGnews Jobs.

5. Gamesindustry.biz Jobs.

And for a new Video Game Site you should check out this guys site... Seems he got hit by the Digg Effect for some really good article writing, hehe I wonder how his server is holding up... Action Button...

Sad news tonight... (Wednesday) one of my Fav SciFi Writers and inspiration for Ambrosia's first hit "Nice Nice, Very Nice" based on the now as of today "Departed" Kurt Vonnegut's Story "Cat's Cradle", well Kurt has left the building so to speak... Goodbye and thanks for things like "Slaughterhouse-Five" and your other works...
