So you want to break into the video game industry (you want a game biz job). First, you have to know which type of job you want -- if you don't know which you want, you need to read about the game industry and the types of jobs in it. Then you might need to make a decision. Third, you need to be qualified for the job. Fourth, you need to know how to find information and how to ask good questions (you need to not ask bad questions). Finally, we have tips for getting the job.
I am currently completing an East Asian Studies BA degree from UC Davis but I want to get into the game industry, preferably as some level of game designer. After obtaining 5 AAs, this coming year will be my 6th year in college because I love to learn an explore different disciplines so I have a lot of experience outside the industry. Now I am looking for experience inside the industry. I have been looking into the Art Institute of California, Sacramento and DigiPen, the latter being the one I am most interested in. After reading some of the posts here, I noticed a lot of people saying "just go to a state college." Now I REALLY don't know what to do... Please, any advice will be much appreciated.
