I'm focusing on fulltime work here not freelance.
Just so you know this isn't going to be a thread about me going boo hoo I haven't got a job. I'm just interested to see who else is in the same situation as me, what with this current economical climate. A few studios in the uk have recently closed down and it seems most applicants need previous games experience.
I have just graduated from university so It's most certainly too soon to expect any miracles. The difficulty at the moment is that I'm not sure where I stand. There are no indicators as to what I need to improve in order to increase my hirability. I have already had numerous rejections with no feedback, other than there is someone better than me.
It's obvious that I need to keep on improving my skills but I can't help but feel like im stabbing in the dark.
I was wondering how long did it take some of you to chase the dream? It's difficult to get to terms with the true reality of how difficult this is going to be.
I'd love to hear everyones stories, whether you are hired or still hunting.
Also if any of you are feeling generous crits on my portfolio would be greatly appreciated.
