Just to pick up on something Barry said below. Please do drop us a line if there's a particular role or an industry that you'd like to know more about, in terms of how you'd make a break into that industry/role or what life is like once you get there.
We'd also love to hear what you think about the site and its content, either over email or you can post comments directly on the site itself.
Hey guys,Many of you may not be aware but a few of us run a careers blog at the GDC: http://careers.grad-dc.co.uk/James Bowkett and myself have organised some questions and interviewed a selection of people from the software industry to help you understand the differences between working in media, working in a bank or working in a gaming company. We have now got a number of career interviews on the site and it is starting to gain some traction. You can see the difference between being a developer, an architect, a tester or a CTO. There is also some great advice on there on things you can do now to improve your chances of getting a job when you graduate.Some of the latest interviews are:Martin Anderson - Architect at Betfair - http://careers.grad-dc.co.uk/2012/03/14/martin-anderson-architect/Adrian Woodhead - Technical Team Lead in Last.FM - http://careers.grad-dc.co.uk/2012/09/07/adrian-woodhead-technical-team-lead/Joel Horrowitz - Developer within Banking - http://careers.grad-dc.co.uk/2012/09/17/joel-horowitz-quantitative-analyst-developer/We are really interested in getting this site and these interviews out to as many people as possible, so please help us by spreading the word on facebook, twitter and anywhere else where you think students may find it useful: http://careers.grad-dc.co.uk/If there is anyone you'd like us to approach to find out about their career then let James, Nicola or myself know and we'll do what we can to make it happen.Warm regards,Barry
