So you want to break into the video game industry (you want a game biz job). First, you have to know which type of job you want -- if you don't know which you want, you need to read about the game industry and the types of jobs in it. Then you might need to make a decision. Third, you need to be qualified for the job. Fourth, you need to know how to find information and how to ask good questions (you need to not ask bad questions). Finally, we have tips for getting the job.
It is I, again.
I was wondering about the value of a reference letter in the game development industry.
Someone with authority recently commented positively on my discipline and skills to one of my superiors and I was wondering if it was worth asking for a recommandation letter.
I haven't really dealt with such papers before, so I am not exactly sure how they would be perceived by
a - A different body within the same studio
b - A different branch of the same company
c - A different company
Basically, is it worth asking for one?
What measure of authority does one such document have in this particular industry?
