1. Perhaps you've heard that the longer you're out of work the harder it is to get hired?

2. Terrible reason! Think of a better reason to tell interviewers.

3. Okay. Doing what game job exactly?

4. It's worthwhile if you enjoy it. If you enjoy it, you shouldn't have to ask if it's worthwhile.

5. No. You don't.

6. No. You can't.

7. Yes. Exactly.
