Get in the Game student games careers events, talks and workshops

Get in the Game is our leading series of careers events for games students. We visit key universities across the UK and Europe with a team of games industry experts, providing detailed CV and portfolio guidance, workshops with hints and tips to increase employability, and help students understand the skills that games studios are searching for.

With direct support from the games industry, the tour delivers talks, advice and workshops from specialist games recruiters Aardvark Swift and representatives from UK games studios. This is a unique opportunity for students to learn about the industry and how to make themselves stand out, straight from games professionals.

During the 2018 tour we were joined by guest speakers from studios including Boss Alien, nDreams, TT Games, Rebellion, Sumo Digital, Red Kite Games & more.

The core Get In The Game careers session is based directly on feedback from studios who take part in our annual graduate recruitment survey of the UK game industry. 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’re a university wanting us to visit, a studio interested in sponsoring, or a member of industry who wants to get involved, we’d love to hear from you! Contact Andy Driver for more information on 01709834777 or email at andy.driver@aswift.com.
