What are some jobs that will allow me to become a video game developer
I am a student at New Endeavors transition and I am interested in knowing a lot more about the video game development field and learn more about it.

Entry level video game developers often have difficulty breaking into the video game industry because most major studios require experience. Some new programmers find their first professional positions at smaller studios, making short, simple games for mobile devices and social media sites. One way to gain an advantage in the competitive job market is by networking on the blogs, forums, and websites most often visited by game developers. Sometimes the professional contacts gained through these sites will ask for portfolios or advertise available positions not found on traditional job boards. The most effective way to get noticed by these gaming studios is to create games and put them in your portfolio, a successful portfolio should include several small games that can be played to completion. The portfolio should offer the viewer links to all the installation software needed for each game to work. As a backup, there should be screenshots of crucial game scenes so the games can be evaluated even if the support software products required are not readily available at the time of the portfolio review. The portfolio should have source code for all the games. The notes should give credit to any collaborators who might have helped with elements of the game's design, programming or presentation.

Doc recommends the following next steps:
Be persistant and don't give up! Take classes in computer programming and graphic design as well as creative writing classes. Every great game has a great storyline and those storylines come from great writers!
