It depends. WHICH job? You've been here many times before, and you should know that there are many different jobs in games. Which one are you asking about?

Thank you for remembering me.

I'm working as a programmer and studied it in a college, but I don't like it from the bottom of my heart.

I'd enjoy writing, but it is hard to get jobs in it where I live or anywhere else in or out of the industry.

There is a 1-year program that helps to get into the local industry and possibly finding partners to make games together. But, as I come with an idea, I'm afraid I wouldn't have the chance to do what i want and just doing someone else.

I'm thinking to change my major to industrial engineering or economy to have an opportunity to develop else wise.

I honestly just don't know, I'm happy I'm making a living even it is something I don't like.

If you are considering some options and have to make a decision, I recommend you make a decision grid.

You could start of by being a gamer tester? I know a few people who are doing that, it's a good step to take as you can then move onto other things, depends what you're interested in? you haven't really told us.
