How to find a job the game developer?

Hi all. The second month of learning C++, now writing a simple game in sfml, and then plans to UE4. Periodically I go to different sites to watch jobs and there all sad - there are almost none! So I wanted to ask whether it really to find a job a game developer(and especially with no commercial experience) and where to find it? Or even in this area it is better not to go and write toy a maximum of for yourself and friends, and to work for example in the web?

In C++ now I write mostly games AAA class.
Therefore, offices are few and demands from them - at least the confident Junior, not a novice trainee.

In addition, for employment you will need to know not only C++ but also technology and SDLC.
So if you want to write in C++ - look for any job, not necessarily in game development. When you're mid-level, it will be much easier to search.

More than quick entry into game development - mobile platform, web, unity

Hi all.

Hello.
The second month of learning C++, now writing a simple game in sfml, and then plans to UE4.

Good start, but you have to understand that your level in C++ is near zero.
Periodically I go to different sites to watch jobs and there all sad - there are almost none!

Well, it's simply not true. https://gamedev.ru/job/forum/?vacancy - I see here 4 of the C++ jobs on the first page only, that is, yesterday-today. And overall vacancies enough.
So I wanted to ask whether it really to find a job game developer

Of course.
(and especially with no commercial experience)

Oops, got a problem here. Experience need to acquire. Look with normal C++ knowledge and strong experience in UE at least in a couple of years ( even for profit ) the problem of employment in games development to stand before you will not. Conclusion - continue to learn C++, learn UE, write prototypes, not complex, and when you fill skills, will be able to participate in gamedev drive. Until you can join some Amateur development experience.
While not pumped, well, will probably have to earn something - it makes sense to try game development industry to the touch, sitting as a tester, for example. Can you immediately fly off the rose-colored glasses and you prefer the web.
