  1. Well let's say i am dreaming of two things: working at HTC Vive or Oculus, as Product Manager, or in a big game studio as a game director/creative director (so the guy thinking of the WHAT we are building, and for WHO). Right now, i would be a production coordinator in games, so working on the HOW. Hence why my questions about the relevance.
  2. Hey there I'm a 38 years old freelancer/project/program manager who "dreams" of working in the game industry for years. I've got an offer in a big studio for a Production Coordinator role on a triple A game. In 5/10 years, i would see myself being a Product Manager for a tech company, or a Game Director in a studio. So not only managing projects and teams, but also doing market research, roadmaps, features, and globally having a vision for the product/games. Do you feel being a Prod Cord would be a good move toward this career? Knowing that i feel i already have a good "product sense", but i may be lacking in terms of execution (managing a team, leadership, and so on). Thanks for your help
  3. Hello 😃 I'm 38 years old, been a freelancer or project/program manager for the past 20 years. Hardcore gamer before, still love this industry (reading news on a daily basis, trying new games but not as much as before). When i watch every E3 presentations, i'm like "what the hell are you waiting for, just go for it, you will have regrets of not having built such a game with a team". Hence why i've applied to several studios for the past few years, usually in Production. For two reasons: 1) I'm not a game designer, programmer, artist... 2) I like enabling teams, some aspects of project management, and want to be better at it and grow in leadership as well. I've got an offer in a big studio for a Production Coordinator role. I feel the level is a bit low for my age, salary as well. But at least they give me my chance (on the contrary to all the other studios i've reached), my manager is experienced and believes in me, and it would be for a triple A game. Questions: - How do you feel about this? - Ultimately, i would see myself being a Product Manager for a tech company, or a Game Director in a studio. So not only managing projects and teams, but also having a vision for the product/games. Do you feel being a Prod Cord would be a good move toward this career? Knowing that i feel i already have a good "product sense", but i may be lacking in terms of execution. Thanks for your help 😃
