Red face New college graduate...

Hi, I'm new here. I just graduated from college this past May, and have been looking for entry-level jobs in St. Louis, Chicago, and Rhode Island. The jobs that I've found are typically sales/marketing, administrative assistants, etc. I was originally a computer science engineering major in college (hoping that one day I'd be making video games), but switched to psychology after I realized that programming isn't what I wanted to do the rest of my life. Even though I have a degree in psychology, after I've been looking for jobs the past few months, I know now that I still really want to work in the video game industry.

I'm just wondering that within the three cities (St. Louis, Chicago, and Providence) are there any video game developers/companies that I should be looking into? Also, is there room for females in the video game industry?

Thumbs up

Hi Gshonk and AngelWings, i am too new around here. I am looking for a graduate job after college. I need tips on how to behave on interviews. I found few sites that are covering this subject.

The one with most straightforward tips and action approach was http://www.tonybeshara.com Graduate Job Search Tips - Tonybeshara.com.

Can you recommend me some of the good sites you guys found?
