The Death Card

Job at EA

So I live in Vancouver, and EA Sports is based out of here. I get this phone call from my roommates mom telling us both about positions at a graphics design studio in a firm in Vancouver, and she would call us back with the number and details.

So she calls back, and she's like "Oh yeah, its at a place called EA Sports, you ever hear about that?"

Apparently they have programmers working round the clock there and they need people to make sandwiches, and do dishes. Hell i'd probably have a part time job doing dishes somewhere anyway, so why not do it at the god of sports games' headquarters?

Nice way to get your foot in the door, eh? You should tell them to bring the injured player ambulance back to the madden franchise.

My friend's sister's boyfriend works there as a tester, whenever we hang out he's always complaining about it and I just SO want to deck him, I would love a job getting paid to play games

You do not want to get a job testing games. Sure it's fun at first but it gets old after a while. Then eventually you do not want to touch a video game again.

that's how I got my start at doing game with Disney in 89...

IMHO it's fun until you do it for 60-100 hours a week... especially when it's games that suck or games that aren't targeted to you or don't interest you, or don't appeal to you.... etc.

I was actually paid by EA to do some cartoons. It took forEVER to get that gig, then they shut down the site a month after we got the contract signed. Spit in a sandwich for me.

That's awesome. I would take that in a second. Foot in the door, like someone said. Not to mention just a cool place to work. Who knows who you will befriend and what they can get you! (As well as having a new friend, too, of course...trying to not be too cynical..)

sounds like a good job, regardless of the the fact that you would be making food for computer programmers.
