Strategy Guide – Breaking In to the Games Industry

When:

2015-02-11 at 7:00PM

Where:

2 MetroTech Center, 8th Floor Lecture Hall

 

How do I get an internship?
What do game companies want to see in a job applicant?
Should I start my own company or work for someone else?
Can I really make a living making games?

At Breaking In, a panel of game industry veterans and recent Game Center graduates will answer these questions and whatever else you want to throw at them. This session is designed for current students looking for an internship, as well as students who are graduating soon and are considering the game industry as a career.

The panel will include:

  • Grant Reid (Independent)
  • Margaret Robertson (PlayDots)
  • Toni Pizza (Independent)
  • Mattia Romeo (Gigantic Mechanic)
  • Howard Tsao (Muse Games)

After the talk, we’ll feature some short presentations from NYC studios interested in finding new talent. Then, join us for free drinks and networking in the Open Library, including a chance to sit down for more in-depth conversations with local game companies like Take-Two and High 5 Games.

If you represent a game development company or if you are developer looking for collaborators and you would like to have a table at Strategy Guide, please contact the NYU Game Center Program Coordinator Dylan McKenzie at gamecenter@nyu.edu.

Free and open to the public. RSVP Here.
