A Woman’s Job

We Can Still Do It!

For a long time, men ruled the workforce. A woman’s place was in the home with her children, taking care of the house.

Not Just a Game

Video games are a $27.5 billion dollar industry, and it’s an industry that keeps on growing. The first video game was created in the 1970s by a young engineer named Al Alcorn. In just 40 years, the industry has grown $7.4 billion in annual sales, just short of the $9.49 billion that films brought in. Making a video game is not a one-person job any more, however. Modern video games take hundreds of professionals months to create, not to mention the amount of money invested in them. With the industry growing at such a fast pace and the amount of manpower needed to create these video games, employment opportunity is bright.
