Today we looked at job roles that could suit us within the future and if we would want to apply for those, would the location effect us and would we be willing to move to the location.

After looking at the jobs that i found suited me i discovered that the majority of high paying jobs where located within London this sparked the conversation of if we would be willing to move fortunately have family that i could move in with at allow rate of pay which is only a small distance from the centre of London. After discussing the location we looked at vacancies to live in and how this would effect pay.

Once we had looked at where we would be living and the financial requirements needed we had a look at the job role that I was interested in, which was a game designer role. the class examined the skills needed and compared their skills to the Game Designer role. Once we completed the task we learnt that we would have to learn more skills to apply for the job but this could become a reality within a couple years.
