Session Name:

Game Career Seminar: How to Catch the Attention of the Engineering Hiring Manager


Hundreds of people will apply to a gameplay engineering position, but only 10-15 will get a callback - and of those at most one gets the job. Hiring managers only have about 5 minutes to evaluate your credentials, so your job is to convince them to give you a call within those 5 minutes. Your tools are the resume, the cover letter, the portfolio website, and the source code repository. This talk will provide concrete advice for what you can do in those documents to help you stand out.
