Again, sorry for the radio silence. I promise I'll have more bloggy goodness for you guys to sink your teeth into once my schedule clears up and I can afford to spend a few hours typing up decent articles again.
So I'm going to be graduating in the next 5-6 weeks. After that the plan is to rock the job market like the metaphorical hurricane. When I started this program a year ago I was hoping that I'd be able to get out of school right as the holiday (read: crunch) season came to a close. The theory was (and is) that the sinusoidal fluctuation of studio development will see a drop-off right around the holiday season and a ramp-up in January-April. I think that this is a good thing for us first time jobhunters, although I imagine we'll be singing a different tune once the process comes full circle and our projects are finishing up.
This is all purely theoretical by the way. I've heard that this happens and it carries a lot of face value but... well, I guess we'll see. Ask me again in six months.
