So far this month I applied for 15+ game development related jobs, and spent ages carefully crafting customized cover letters and resumes for each particular job. Didn't get as much as a "thank you for your application".

Then, for the one random job application I applied to on LinkedIn using my most generic resume, and no cover letter, I get a near instant response and an invitation to coordinate day/time for an interview in person. Wtf.

Anyway, hope I get the job, because I'm running out of food.

    @carlosjpc At this point I'm done trying. A relationship would just be a distraction and more money being spent.

    I had put my CV on around 10 jobsites, looking for a junior developer job after some self study. I constantly received mails and phone calls for 2 weeks straight. Don't know if this applies to game development as well though.

    If you run out of food, I can recommend the likes of:

    https://www.freecycle.org

    Ask for free food.

    Worked for me. :-)

    Where do you live? The problem might be your current location :)

    Thanks people! Fingers and toes crossed here too...

    @FunkDelegate I put my CV and contact info on maybe five-six different job sites, but the market for the kinds of jobs I am after is not the greatest where I live, so no phone calls. One linkedin recruiter messaged me, but nothing came of that.

    @Sunsette I'd rather not disclose my location :) but what you said could very well be the case.

    Update: I celebrated too early. No job. Between sending me a contract suggestion for review and me showing up at their office a week later to sign it, they implemented a hiring freeze that will last ... Who knows how long. *sigh*
