So as the thread title says, I want to hear from the people who don't work in the games industry. Times are tough in and out of the industry and while I will be at GDC trying to get off the unemployed slide (I'm looking for full time work), I know that not everyone here uses their art talents at a game studio. Plus, something stable so I can actually spend time getting somewhere in life and not just scraping by sounds like a good deal to me. So I have a few questions, as I'll be planning my next moves if GDC goes as well as the last two months have gone (poorly).
Where do you work?
What type of 3D work do you do?
Are you generally happy at your job?
What led you to that career path and is there advancement there?
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions!
