    By starting at the bottom of the food chain and doing the entry level jobs (junior QA), or starting your own project to prove your worth.

    It's not just a games industry phenomenon, you start at the bottom in many other professions and industries (e.g. helpdesk for aspiring network admin, apprenticeship in a trade etc.).

    Once you get in at the bottom, over time you can prove yourself. It can be much easier to maneuver to position of your liking from within rather then try and land that ideal position as an external noob.

    Then keep telling yourself that you're paid better and work less hours. Keep telling yourself that every day. Over and over till you believe it. Oh, and post on sumea to make yourself feel better ;)

    Game development colleges, such as Qantm and AIE are a good bet as well..

    Tom Sloper is a man who can tell you how to get in - word of warning, he's quite brutal and I would suggest reading any of his FAQ's before you send him a personal question.

    Yeah I read everything on that guy's site before I got into games. Really good resource.
