Hi, I am currently a college student studying to become a Game Developer. I need to interview current game developers for a class I'm taking. if anyone seeing this could answer just the 5 questions that I have provided below as well as your name, current position, and how many years you've been in the game industry. I'd really appreciate any responses.
Year in the industry:
What was the starting salary?
How many hours do you work?
What did you learn outside of school that was useful?
How did you get your job and how hard was it to find it?
how was this job different than you expected it to be?
I am doing a survey to understand better what are the pain points in terms of music composition in video games, what are the game studios / developers expectations in the future and how the industry could be improve: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1NycMla5fhQd1fMbLy3c28alxCbhIYvkD6Fv9lqhxEJ0
It is not a promotion of any kind, I am just interested in getting feedbacks from game developers, studios and gamers (and composers as well).
The answers are completely confidential and no personal information will be published, or used for any other purpose.
Thanks for your time and help
