Make sure it's one you can drop if you get hired by Valve for your work. :)

Well, they are all game industry jobs, I would feel lucky receiving even an interview at any of them...

Did you do some research for your portfolio first?

At least you know you're in the gaming area, I don't even know what the fuck I want to be.

Oh, RabidMonkey. You leave for years and you come back with this.

Good luck.

Good.
"At least you know you're in the gaming area, I don't even know what the fuck I want to be." :P I'm with rabid, game industry is rewarding, even if you get deprived of sleep when you're working on a game.
EDIT: When I said good, I meant good that you were looking into a field you have experience in, not that you'd feel lucky getting an interview.

I remember years ago on IRC, you said that after working on BM you'd never want to have that as a full time job. I guess things change?

Also, wow it's you.

Thanks for the support everyone :)

With regards to your comment, srry...

I've kind of taken a different outlook on the whole idea of making games for a living. Even now I am learning new things every day about level and game design; having a career where I can put my skills in that department to use and grow as a designer and artist would be a welcome change from my current line of employment which is basically just the same, day in and day out. While there are stressful aspects of the industry I have come to the realization that at this point in my life there is nothing more I would rather do.

Bang-on then. Best of luck in finding something decent where you'd have the freedom to be as creative as you can. :]
