    Default Getting a videogame related job :)

    Today i had an interview at one of the top 5 electronic retailers in germany (they are opening a new store in my city) and i got the job, i will work part-time for them in the videogame and pc segment

    finally combining my hobby with a job that'll give me some extra money to collect, so, chances i will complete my dc collection have increased

    Speaking of game related jobs, does anyone know what the people at EB Games or Gamestop make. I was just what the associates or managers make, my preschool job pays terrible and it tough work, I'd be interested in some type of gaming industry job, it's the only industry I know pretty much all about, from classic gaming to todays' newest, I'd be a good asset to and game-related company.

    Well the way they go through managers in my area .....
    I'd say they make less then a migrant working dirt farmer.

    a. The fact that the nearest game store is 60 miles away
    b. Can't drive yet... only 2 more years, baby!

    P.S.: Good luck. (I'd say something in German, but I don't know any...)

    Good luck man!! This is my dream but i have to finish college first and i barely remember my life before having a license. it was that brief time of my life where i had time to do things. you can just sit around and home and be ok with it because you don't have a car to take you anywhere, it's kind of a hidden bonus. Once you're able to drive, your parents want you out. you gotta get a job, run errands, and drive drive drive period. thus leaving no time for games or atleast not enough

    GREAT, hydr0x, nothing better than combining passion for something with a job.

    What kinda store is it? New games, used games, both? and in which city?

    Last time I was in Germany I found a new Bangai-O (DC) in a clearance sale of a regular electronics store. I hope I'll find something good again in two months.

    Maybe I'll buy this time a PAL Pro Evolution Soccer and get a conversion disk for import games. I have the feeling I have to dive into the world of soccer games which I found in the past boring.

    Are there any team handball games? ...and...don't tell them you're an atheist, ok?

    as i said one of the big electronic retailers (one of these: Saturn, Media Markt, Expert, Red Zac, ProMarkt), it's not a video-game-only store, never said that but i'll work in their videogame-division

    Last time I was in Germany I found a new Bangai-O (DC) in a clearance sale of a regular electronics store. I hope I'll find something good again in two months.
    you can get Bangai-O for under 10? incl. shipping from germany ebay

    Maybe I'll buy this time a PAL Pro Evolution Soccer and get a conversion disk for import games. I have the feeling I have to dive into the world of soccer games which I found in the past boring.
    mhhh, if you always found them boring perhaps PES isn't the way to go, it's far more realistic than old soccer games

    Are there any team handball games? :
    NOOOOO i hate it, that's due to the lack of german developers, you know some company like EA has probably never heard of the game though it is one of europes top club-sports (i'd say it's behind Soccer, Basketball on third place i'd say, even before rugby, football, volleyball and whatever )

    ) ...and...don't tell them you're an atheist, ok?
    nah, i won't i AM catholic, but only because i don't have to pay church-taxes yet
