Today was the Career Guide Seminar, which is absolutely a must for a student!
If you are serious about getting into the game industry, then you need to save your pennies and attend GDC. There’s no way around it.
The Career Guide seminar, offered session on resume writing for game designers. There was a mock interview session where you’d get question by HR reps from real game companies. There was a Q&A session with HR reps from game companies. Many game designers gave lectures about the dos and don’t of getting into the industry.
There was just so much info which a lot I tell you in class… but I think it actually sinks in when a real game developer tells you.
I’ll go over more details about what I learned in class on Tuesday, but really consider asking Santa for money this year to buy your ticket to GDC it really is a foot in the door to your game design career.
