Our Get in the Game Careers Events take place throughout the year, though are focused largely between October and December. We run a series of university visits in addition to free webinars for students, delivering our award-winning Get in the Game presentation accompanied by some incredible industry partners. Working with over 150 institutions across the UK and Europe, we get the chance to deliver key games career guidance to thousands of students. We currently run 4 separate versions of our main talks, each with a slightly different focus:
How to get a job as a graduate in the games industry for:
- Animators & VFX Artists
- Game Designers
Each GITG careers talk includes the most up-to-date guidance including; the key skills games studios look for in graduates, tips for constructing the perfect CV and portfolio, how to network to get a job in the games industry and more! For each talk, both in-person and online, we’ll be accompanied by a guest speaker from industry who will provide their own insights as well as the opportunity to take part in a live Q&A.
This is a unique opportunity for students to learn about the industry and how to make themselves stand out, straight from games professionals. The talks highlight the benefits and reality of a career in video games development, giving students the guidance they need on how to prepare themselves & improve their employability.
If you run or lecture in a games related course and would like more information on either our Search For A Star dev challenges or bringing the Get In The Game talks to your university, we’d love to hear from you.
