Worst than last year
>>675454>junior position opened>quickly learn how to do things they ask>gather courage to call>sorry this position is closed, we will call you later

>>675474>dick or gtfo.FTFY.
>>675472>20 year old>absolute top tier workSure, m8y.
>>675473Aren't smug comments against the exclusivity agreement for Linux developers?
>working at big animation studio>get really sick and has to stop working for 2 weeks. > inb4 scared of losing job because of taking too many days off. Or losing my sought after position > "Don't worry anon, you're one of our best character artist, being sick is part of human life. Come back when you're ok ! No need for doctor note.">mfw
I've been in the industry for 2 and a half years. Maybe in another 2 and a half years I'll end up opening a cafe or something.Don't let your passion die anons.
>>675727Where are you from?
>>675727My passion died once already, and you can't kill that which is dead.
>>675729Just a third world shithole.>>675730You'd think so. And yet here you are on /3/, there's still a glimmer left to stomp out.
>>675545I work in a smaller studio, but the same happened to me recently.. the general stance was that health comes first, and they don't even pressure me for a return date. Huge relief. Gotta appreciate understanding employers.
>>675472>>675502thisI suspect the good ol dunning–kruger effect here
>>675744or jealousy from you?
>>675744People who use the phrase "dunning-kruger" tend to have it
>>675454>Spent 3 years learning 3d>Never felt confident in my work, so I never tried to apply for a job>Start hating it after all this wasted timeFuck this. I'm a fucking neet with no other skills and no fucking understanding where should I go in life. How do I heal my soul after a burnout and start to love 3d again?
>>677252Try scavenging all your work up to this moment, make a demo reel/portfolio of your progress and be proud what you've learned.Bonus points if you make that collection public and ask for critique. It really boosts the passion to do stuff. +You will NEVER be satisfied with your own work. No matter what medium. It's just a human nature to have just a bit too much expectations to push oneself further.
>>675545nice self insert, buddy
>>675545>scared of losing job because of taking too many days offlol, America
>>677261>lol, Americawdym? Aren't americans most clement in that sense?
>>677262At least where I live it's illegal to fire someone after taking sick leave, even if it doesn't happen immediately after. Of course the leave has to be approved by a doctor, but still.
>>675545Lucky you, espetially if the coworkers are understanding. At IBM being sick that long would turn heads and put you on a shitlist, at least on my retarded old team
>>675454I don't search i make games on my own
>>677309Wow, no one ever needed surgery and recovery from carpal tunnel syndrome? That shit can get up to a month before being able to go back to work, and it's among the most common injuries among IT (and others) workers.
>>675462Well of course they weren't going to wait a year for your gormless ass.
Just started at a small but well funded company. Everyone there is damn talented and I'm learning a lot! Finally made it
>>675454>cant find work for years>almost give up on 3d>finally get an offer>instantly get 4 more big studios reply>pass every test work i try, now cant decide where to goFuck this gay ass shit, where the fuck was work 3 years ago? Its like life is fucking with me.
>>678035Did you do something different between back then and now? Or should we just think it's a change of external factors? I can well see this being the case, as there appears to be more demand for visual content involving 3DCG.
>>678036I think its just the rapid industry growthDespite what retards on /v/ might screech the gaming mobile industry especially is exploding, they pay well and steal people from bigger studios so they have to fill ranks back inUsed to not even get replies, now they seem to be fighting over good animators and programmers, but good 3d guys too
>>675454>can't apply to jobs because most of my work is weeb shitI have made a terrible mistake
>>678038keyword good, these would find job whenever
>keep looking in my area>always the same results for unpaid 40-hour internships from a no-name companywhy was I born in this void
I havent even started yet and I already feel like killing myself.>Finishing College with some decent 3D modelling knowledge, basics and theory.>No Job Experience>No Real Portfolio>Everyone ask for at least 1 year or two.>Tons of shit that i dont even know about and seem complicated to learn[spoiler]>Cant into texturing for the life of me[/spoiler]This is idiotic.I just want to live off making 3D shit, I dont want to wage my life away in a fast food joint Kill me.
>>680959honestly if you weren't doing 3d 1-3 years before taking it serious (trying to make money) your probably not gonna make it... I have been doing 3d for over 4 years now and have been making mods and stuff for various games, never been paid. the people who are successful have been at it for 10+. if you cant make stuff just for the fun of it than why even bother.
>>681156Nice gatekeeping there, bro.
>>681163reality's a bitch
>>681163not trying to gatekeep i want more people in 3d but its just truth, the guys who did it for free for 10 years have a huge advantage over you regardless of if you went to school or not.
I just got hired as an intern at Relic Entertainment. I've been underemployed after graduating, but I'm excited to finally have an opportunity to stretch my legs.
>>681280what the fuck
>>681280Thats pretty cute.
>>681290lmfao my thoughts exactly
>>681280Will they pay you?
