I am a 2nd year iMSc in Computer Science student. I do like what I am studying but I don't know what job path I should choose. My third year is going to start soon and I need to pick a specialization but I don't know which field would best suit me. Please guide me, and if possible I don't want to get the general advice, that it's up to you, whatever interests you, or experiment with all the fields, etc. I am genuinely feeling struck like earlier I wanted to do data science, but then UI/UX designing and then game development caught my interest, now robotics is also interesting to me, and I also want to build a start-up of my own as well, rather than doing a 9-5 job but I have no idea how to start this is getting so frustrating, please help.

I want to do something creative, and also well-paid, there are many fields but now that I know I have to stick with one choice in a year. It's kinda scary.

Lots of options but unsure of which to choose?

Hi I'm a senior in high who's interested in a variety of fields but I don't know which one to choose. I took an accounting class at my school and really enjoyed but I also like the idea of going into library science. Another field I've been looking into is law but I've heard a lot of conflicting advice on that. Lastly I'm semi interested in computer science and game development but I don't know much about that at the moment. I'd love any advice that I could get!

Is it really worth getting into any type of field that involves gaming in any way?

I have heard a lot of mixed feelings about the careers that involve gaming as a whole. All the way from Game Designer to Game tester. I have been told it strips the enjoyment of gaming away once you are required to do make your hobby into a job with gaming specifically . Is there some way to bridge that gap in-between the pleasure of casual gaming and the full work aspect of it behind the scenes? It is one of the few things I enjoy but I don't want that reason to be the reason as to why I hate it later on in life.

What is it like to work as a game programmer

I am 11th grader in SF and I loved gaming ever since I was little I was always fascinated by how games worked and when I was old enough I got my own laptop with good enough specs to look at some heavy steam game in which I look at how they were designed and I look at their game in a way as if I was judging them. I would learn how game gave different ways of being built giving them this sense of teamwork so I want to know how it feels to work as a game programmer #gaming #video-games #game-development #video-game-design #game-design
