Hi, I was wondering if anyone can provide me some guidance. I have a Bachelors Degree in Industrial Design and Human-Computer Interaction. I entered the game industry instead, thinking there would be plenty of interaction/UX design opportunities (since I thought games are supposedly highly interactive). However I find that is not the case, and the industry is more geared towards art production (due to time/cost restraints), so I've been working in motion graphics design/Flash animation positions for the past year since I've graduated from college and doing front-end coding for side projects sites and my company's site.
I want to do interaction or user experience design (which was what I did more of in school), and get past focusing on making eye candy (not that I don't think visual design is important, but I don't think it's my forte).
Ideally, I want to go back for a Masters degree in HCI or interaction design, but I was wondering if I should try for an interaction design internship instead. Or am I overqualified for internships at this point? I feel like a lot of junior job postings expect prior experience in the field.
