Turning a Pastime Into a Career
Eric Neutuch, Community College Daily
When Jason Burden enrolled at Salem Community College (SCC) in New Jersey after four years of military service, he had little knowledge of how video games were built.
Now a sophomore in SCC's video game design and development program, Burden is building his own games along with a budding career.
Video game-related majors align with a booming job sector. The industry employs more than 220,000 people in the United States, with job prospects expected to expand in the future for everything from programmers to graphic artists to game testers.
