Associate Producer prospects?
 
I have an interview coming up for a Assoc Producer/Project Coordinator position at a social game company. They seem to be cruising on one hit game success and expanding rapidly.

My initial foray into the games industry was to become a designer to do indie games or console games. But I haven't had much luck in my area.

Is it worth it to go through the next few years as a producer role or should I take on a more stable engineering job and work on my own stuff in the meantime?

So, you have to make a decision between two (just two) choices, eh? And you have one (just one) decision criteria: "worth."
Okay, then!

If you enjoy producing and can nab a job as an AP then go for it. You'll be of a lucky few. If you know enough to get a job as an engineer and you like that better, try and get a job doing that.
