Are you out of work, too? Complain about it here, offer advice on job hunting and beating away depression.
There’s not a lot of jobs out there in the video realm around here, especially in a slumping economy. I can’t move because mrs.gnu’s job is too good to give up for anything I might get somewhere else. I also need steady work, not one-off jobs. I’d rather get into video games (I’m an animator), but that seems to always require industry experience or a contact on the inside. Plus, with Electronic Arts laying people off, it’s not like there’s much there either, so I’m competing with people who have bigger resumes for smaller jobs.
I’ve never been unemployed before. I’m seriously considering taking a crappy retail job to pay the bills now that my severance is running out.
Dear Og, I hate complaining about my life because nobody cares and plenty of other people are far worse off than I am, but being out of work is getting old real quick.
In better news, I did find Indeed.com, which is a decent job-site aggregator.
How are you holding up?
