In Topic: Just released a high-quality visual novel, how can I use it to secure a job?

Good advice! I've mainly been applying for junior/intern positions in both design and producer roles as well as QA - I'm pretty sure my CV makes it clear, there's a link in the first post if you wouldn't mind double-checking it for me?

1. Fair point, obviously I wouldn't say that in an interview but thought this was an informal/casual environment (I have now removed this from my initial post)

2. Nope, been designing/releasing games/digital content from around the age of 12, these can be found on my previous site http://crimsonnight.com/

3. Totally reasonable comment, I just want to make sure I'm doing everything I can to accomplish my goal during this period - there have been numerous periods throughout the last few years where I have strenuously applied for jobs within the industry

    I've just skimmed through FAQ #24 and obviously quite a lot of those points are subjective but I would hope I have avoided them!

4. I've got no idea, but again, I would hope my resume passes through any filters

5. I've read that FAQ - the only thing I don't have is a degree, but I was told by professors at the time that I knew half the course already and it wouldn't be beneficial to me - obviously I could enrol in a 3-year course now but would be concerned that I could reach my goal faster without spending that time

I got a couple of artists and a music producer on board to help turn my story into a visual novel; so I wrote, coded and ofc produced/developed the whole thing.

 

Nope, the second link is to an actual YouTube review smile.png

 

Well I went to the Eurogamer Expo a few weeks ago with the novel on my tablet, and potential employers seemed very impressed which is awesome (felt like my hard work had paid off). They all said they'd pass my details onto the relevant teams and a couple said they could definitely get me interviews. Now I've been following these leads up for a few weeks now but as more time passes the less confident I'm feeling about them.

I'm not aware of any other events in the UK where I'd have the chance to network with potential employers?

 

What would you recommend? I've mainly been applying for junior/intern positions in both design and producer roles as well as QA

 

Oh and thanks for replying smile.png
