I’ve been faltering for the last couple of weeks, whether I should apply for a game job or not.
The thing is, I already know that what really matter is experience, whether it is academic or professional. And I still haven’t got any of those kind. I have been developing my first game, it’s true, but it’s also true that I haven’t touched it for more than a month, and it’s a little on half of its way out, so it’s not ready to be put on a portfolio.
In addition to my lack of experience, I’m not willing to go for a full-time game job since I won’t get into any job that would pay me the same amount I’m earning right now, and that would be due to my lack of exp. So, I’m willing to get a game job but I have about two or three hours of my day available, and thus I could only accept contract/outsourcing opportunities.
And now I lay my question: is it worthy for me to apply for a game job, having no experience and only a few hours a day available?
If you can shed some light, please, don’t be shy. 🙂
