Thinking about my future

So, my second trimester in Games development has begun and one of the first tasks given to me was to create a blog in an attempt to create some sort of professional identity. I understand the need to maintain a strong relationship between consumers and I think a blog or a website is a good way to achieve that, but I never thought about what it means when looking for a job.

I've never really thought about what I will be doing once I finish studying, the only thing I can think of is that i’ll most likely be making games. All these crucial details like where will I work and with whom, do I have the freedom to create what I want or will I be confined to a desk while being forced to write code for a project I have no say over. but I guess, when I think about it, establishing my portfolio and preparing to work in the industry is one of the main focuses of my studies.

In one of the online lectures a certain article caught my eye, It talked about what it is like working in the industry and how uncertain it can be. It focused a lot on the negatives of trying to make a career in games, with stories of regular lay-offs and moving across countries for work. It makes it seem like it’d be better to just switch careers.

But if I step back from it all, I can’t help but think ‘whatever’, It’s not like I don’t care, I'm just not phased by it. I came here to learn how to make a career out of making video games, I don’t care how it’ll turn out, I'm doing it because I want to. video games have become such a large part of my life that I don’t care about what ill be doing exactly, bring it on!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
