I ask you ah
Are employers very discerning about like
hiring people who have proper training
like people who have proper design and art training
as compared to software monkeys who can churn stuff out?
I`m thinking, would a company pay, say 2.5k or 3k to hire a uni grad in animation[like me, if I graduate], compared to a software monkey who learned how to animate
and can do all sorts of tricks, and is only asking like 2k?
u say leh ?
That`s why I ask you what, I don`t know
u think that software monkey will take 2k if he can get higher ?
u think that the software monkey dunno about design or art training ?
u asked the wrong question
Then what should be the question?
the question is really simple
how good can you be
it`s a very daunting question
and the answer is ?
Not very good.
You`re right, it`s a question I try to avoid all the time
it`s so easy to get stuck in a rut and lose sight of the entire industry on a global level and just compare yourself on a local level or school level
and u got to look at a global level
the answer is actually as good as you can be
then the question will be how to get there
It`s so easy to get sidetracked in school
I see you post on your blog
like the quality of students a bit chui leh
got students walk out of masterclasses
welcome to my world
can I put this msn on the blog ?
What I tell myself everyday.
To all the people watching, I can never ever thank you enough for the kindness to me, I'll think about it for the rest of my life. All I ask is one thing, and this is.. I'm asking this particularily of young people that watch: Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism - for the record it's my least favorite quality, it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen. I'm telling you, amazing things will happen." - Conan 'O'Brien
