  1. [quote name='Muzzy A' timestamp='1355978440' post='5012705'] Well... I'm still in school for a few months, so I don't think I can apply right now. But,I would love to keep in contact with you! I still haven't made a portfolio, but I have some things to put in one and I'm always making something to show off to friends, sometimes they're portfolio worthy lol. I've been programming in C++ for almost 8 years now (and still learning new things about it all the time). [/quote] Like Paul said, it is never too early to start getting yourself out there in front of the companies that you have some interest in working with. If anything it will give you practice with the application process and give you some experience with things such as the tests that a lot of game dev employers send out. It will also give you a chance to fine tune your resume/cv. It could also lead to building a pre-working relationship with a company and further smooth your transistion into the workforce.   Keep in contact and send along a few links to things you have worked on and perhaps your resume/cv. Oh, and anytime Tom gives advice, listen to it, he knows his stuff and I have a few coworkers who have read his FAQ.  
  2. Industry's look on tattoos etc.

    I work at a studio and there are at least two people with full sleves and about 30 to 40 percent that have various tattoos. Unless they are vulgar or offensive tats are quite acceptable
  3. One thing that helps quite a bit is to make some games. Basically, just make some simple games that showcase that you can do at least the basics. Document the project online as part of your portfolio, as you progress. Build a good resume/cv. Then start applying to various companies directly. Sometimes it helps to apply to the lesser known companies first to get your in. I got my start in the Games industry almost 8 years ago and have been at the job ever since. If you want, I could forward your Resume/CV to our HR department, sometimes all it takes is a little help to get started. At our last company meeting, the owner stated that we are currently looking for people to hire for both experienced and entry level positions. The main requirement is for a good base in C++ skills. Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like me to send along your credentials.
