Hello. My name is Justin McCollum. As a hard-working, devoted graduate from Indian River State College with a Bachelor's degree in 3D Modeling, Gaming & Animation, I intended to use my skills to land a job in the gaming or animation industry. However, it seems impossible.
The trouble is, I live in a small, retirement town called Vero Beach, Florida, an hour and a half away from Orlando. I know in Orlando, there are lots of 3D-related companies, but it's irrelevant because they're "in-person jobs" & I can't afford to get my own apartment in Orlando right now.
So, I am trying to land a job via remote work.
I'm curious to know if you guys think I at least have the potential, but I have my doubts because I applied for 6 different full-time remote jobs, and got rejected from all 6 of them. It's discouraging, sometimes I can't help but feel I'm not good enough, regardless of me having a Bachelor's Degree.
What is your advice to landing a job in this industry, particularly remote work?
I appreciate your time.
