I was just wondering how tied the Giant Bomb community is to this industry we love.
I went to college with a girl that became an Audio Designer and Producer at a studio particularly loved by Giant Bomb. I did some focus-testing on unreleased products for them, thanks to that. It will be cool to see if they use any of my suggestions/ideas in the final game (they seemed pretty excited by some of them, and others they hinted at prototyping already).
I also nearly got a Sales/PR job at High Voltage Software (the guys who made The Conduit for the Wii). I was their second choice, unfortunately.
I've got a steady job now as a Paralegal, but I've been looking around thinking about applying for some Writing or Associate Producer jobs at a few studios, just on a whim.
