Hello all! My name is Matt and I've been perusing the forums for about a year now, but I figured now would be a good time to introduce myself. I'm currently a freshman at UW-Eau Claire and am undecided. My number 1 and 2 interests are music and video games (you can probably guess what my 3rd is)and early last year I decided that I should probably put them together.
My (stupid newbie) question is:
What would you folks recommend that I do as far as education. Is it really necessary to get a job in game audio, or do employers favor industry experience?
Thank you for your time if you can answer my question. I hope I can actually contribute something to the boards in the future.
