Games Production.....

Does anyone know what skills/experience are desirable for someone who wants to go into the production side of game development, and the chances of a job coming up?

I am currently completing a degree in IT, and am undertaking my Honours degree next year. The degree covers programming, systems analyis, marketing, management, design methodologies, e-commerce and whatnot. On top of that I am also completing industry placement as a analyst/programmer.

Is any of this knowledge relevant,or should I go back to the drawing board? Maybe go to AIE, even though it seems catered towards coders/artists.

Interested in any thoughts/suggestions.

I'd say that you'd have to try and get in through the testing area, so ask around for QA positions. I'm sure that most game companies would not hire a person that doesn't have QA experience for a producer position.

Agreed, seems to be the best route to take.
