Job Quest I: The Battle of SIGGRAPH

Remember those great adventure game series put out by Sierra back in the day. They would take you on a perilous journey filled with impossible tasks and you'd probably end up dying several times over trying to finish the game. You'd try to place the hand cursor on Roger Wilco or Alexander, and end up with a scolding remark about touching yourself. Anyways, as a recent college graduate I feel like I too am stuck in some complicated game in seek of some meaningful employment in this dwindling job market. Luckily I'm at SIGGRAPH 2004 in LA, where dozens of the biggest CG related firms are actively seeking out a fresh crop of talent for their respective companies. I've always dreamed about working for ILM or Dreamworks or Pixar, but how on earth do you go about getting that perfect job? I'm on a quest to find out.
