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 Strategy Guide, 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:

Amanda Cosmos, QA Lead, Dots
Shervin Ghazazani, Technical Designer, Digital Extremes
Tom Rassweiler, VP of Games, Arkadium
Maria Saint Martin, Systems Designer, Avalanche Studios
Joe Tringali, Co-Founder, 5th Cell

After the talk, join us for networking in the Open Library, including in-depth conversations with local game companies as well as chat with developers working at local studios, indie developers, and recent graduates on your resumes, portfolios, and career advice.
