Making the career switch from IT to video games?

07 February 2013 - 07:04 AM

Hi all,

I have been working in the IT industry doing mostly 2nd-3rd tier support and project coordination since 2006 but I have absolutely no passion for it and haven't really had from the get go, it just seemed like a way to make some money at the time using skills which I already had. 

The bad news is that I'm already 31 years old and I'm not much of a programmer but I have had some experience in QA/application testing and have quite heavily been involved with software release projects in the past. I would ideally like to initially move into a job in QA to get a feel for the industry with a view to possibly moving into QA management or ideally production later down the line. I do have IT certifications and am currently just over half way through a distance degree in IT and Business but I'm not really sure where to go from here. 

Could anyone offer any advice? I am currently in the UK but have worked in Canada in the past so I'm definitely not adverse to travelling for work if needed. Any help which anybody can provide will definitely be appreciated.
