make a portfolio, apply to companies which are interesting to you... it's really that simple
game development work is pretty grueling, tbh i would stick to native android if you enjoy it
ps: sounds like you just need to actually try and apply, way too much bullshit in this post. it seems like you don't think you are qualified for a top tier company but you can get a job anywhere... which are very conflicting
just go out and bomb a few interviews, you'll learn quickly
Thanks for your response. I think you misunderstood me. What Im trying to say is, how do I know which companies to apply too? I mean, sure I can send my cvs in to the big companies like blziz/ea etc, and Im not saying I think
Im underqualified all Im saying is that to only apply to those big big companies (whose names I know) who get 1000s of people applying and have proper hiring cycles etc isn't the way to go.
What Im trying to say is how do I learn about the other companies who are small medium size enterprises. I dont know anything about the infrastructure in the US. I dont know how to isolate companies and to see which ones im interested in.
I cant just go on google and type, game dev jobs in texas. Ill only start applying once I get to the US. I dont want to have to apply right now and explain to the HR etc my whole situation. Im trying to get together a plan for when I am actually in the states.
I.e I cant go door to door asking if any company is a game dev company. Is there any sort of listing etc of all the companies that I can get? If there is I can go to them one by one and present myself and Id be pretty confident of getting a job.This post was edited by mandarkkk on Jan 13 2018 06:48am
