Convicted Felon as a game programmer

09 November 2012 - 03:36 AM

My name is Kiet Ngu. I am new to this site. I am a convicted felon. 18 years old. I made a mistake and like the saying goes "do the crime, do the time", I learned from it and right now I am trying to get my shit together. I wanted to know what is the job outlook for a convicted felon trying to become a game programmer. I know it will be hard and I expect that, just trying to see what I am up against. I will be attending college at University of Utah for their EAE program which is entertainment and arts program. It was rated top 10 as best game design colleges in the nation by Princeton Review. If your wondering what the crime was, I did breaking and entering (burglary). Again, I know i ruined my life but right now I'm trying to put it behind me. When I finish the program after 4 years, what are the chances of me getting a job? I like any opinions from anybody but looking for a job recruiter to tell me his take on it.
