Get In The Game 2020: Week Four
Two more webinars last week with our Get In The Game careers events, both with a huge number of artists and coders joining us & setting a new record for Q&A sessions!
This week Andy & Dan from the Grads In Games team covered just what it takes for students to get their career started in the games industry, and were joined by guest speakers Greg Wisniewski, Lead Environment Artist at Sumo Digital, and Robin McFarland, Gameplay Programmer at Deep Silver Dambuster Studios.
Greg and Robin gave expert insight across games art and programming for our students, answering a huge amount of questions from hundreds of viewers! From deep technical insight on studio dev processes to tips on tools and techniques to focus on, the talks covered a range of things that will really help you to improve your employability and career prospects in such a competitive field.
Our speakers were also able to share their own experiential advice into working in games, as well as key insights into their own career journeys.

We had a couple of excellent Q&A sessions last week too, working our way though over 150 questions(!) from students about working in the games industry, from what life in industry is really like to current prospects for international students.
