Default English Culminating - Interview

Hey there GCD forum-ers, toyoka here looking for someone to interview for my culminating activity! Some of you may remember me posting another topic similar to this last year. Its basically the same thing this year; I need an interviewee who is currently working as a Game Designer. Below are 15 questions (some of them may seem a little redundant, I know, but bare with me!) and who ever chooses to be interviewed may either post their answers here or e-mail them to me at toyoka@live.com if you feel the answers need to be private. Alright, here goes!

1. What first interested you in this career?

2. When did you realize that you wanted to become a Game Designer?

3. What sort of education is required for this job?

4. Do you enjoy your job?

5. What is the best part of your job?

6. What is the worst part of your job?

7. What are the hours like?

8. What sorts of careers are available to your position?

9. Have people always been supportive of your career choice?

10. What sort of salary ranges are there?

11. Is it difficult to always be thinking of new ideas and concepts?

12. What are areas of business that are very popular?

13. What do you think of your career?

14. Have you had any embarrassing moments in your career?

15. What risks do you take in your job/position?

Hopefully I can get a reply/e-mail as soon as possible, so thanks in advance for your participation!

I work as a programmer/designer hybrid, does that work? I spend about 30-40% of my time on design and the rest on programming.

Well I'm looking for somewhat of a pure Game Designer, more or less someone mainly focused on design rather than other aspects (such as your programming aspect, which is essentially 60-70%). But thanks for asking/attempting
