7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By M. Temelkov on January 3, 2005
Format: Paperback
this is one of the few books that offers practical advice on finding a job in the cg industry. besides the standard topics like putting together a resume and interviewing tips, it tells you what skills you need to build in order to be successful at different career paths (modeler vs rigger vs compositor, etc.) i also found the interviews with various people who already work in the industry very informative.
