Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Well, time is winding down. I graduate college on May 10th with a degree in Business Marketing and a minor in Professional Writing and have yet to apply for a job.
I have worked before, but not many places. For about three summers, two winters, and one spring break I worked at Disney World (the one in Florida). I worked a ride and 3-d show; moving guests from one room to another, giving a spiel in just about every room of the 3-d show, quick math and logic to put people in the right rows of the ride, in charge of their safety, etc.
This past summer I worked in the IT department of my school. I have also written quite a few articles for the school paper, had my own video game column, and was Copy & Line editor (and assistant C&L beforehand).
Right now I just don't want to take any first job I see after I graduate. Am I wrong for being picky? I want to write more than anything, so I have been browsing online for places that I could possibly freelance at until I can find a position somewhere. There is a job fair here on campus tomorrow and I just don't find any of the companies attending worthwhile.
To get to the point, what was your first job out of school/in the real world? Was it something you really enjoyed/wanted to do? If not, did you ever get to the job that you really wanted in the first place?
