    Dear Reader

    My name is Chris Armen and I am currently enroled in a Digital Media course.

    I am 23 and I live in Sydney, Australia.

    My Ultimate dream is to be part of a gaming industry. I love games and have
    shown deep interest all my life. I am creative and eager to learn new things

    everyday. I am not really happy about the course that I am doing tho.

    I was hoping that somehow THQ can take me on and train me and mould me into a

    great employee that the company wants for the present and future. I have had

    to be trained by many companies of different industries and I find it easier

    then studying. I will do whatever it takes to be a part of games. I am
    willing to be taken on even if I don't get paid, as money isn't an issue for
    me. I want to be involved for the love of the industry and because it's the
    only thing that excites me and makes me happy

    Thank you for taking your time to read this and hope to hear from you soon

    My email is letsplay29t at hotmail dot com

    Sincerely yours Chris Armen

    Working for free because money is not an issue for you takes a payed job away from someone who needs it. If you do an honest days work you should always be paid an honest days pay... Do not cheapen the Australian work standards. This multi-national company can afford to pay for it's workers. Never work for below minimum wage and screw Howards reforms!
