Overview: Applying for game development positions has always been competitive. Now, companies have changed both their hiring and interview practices as well as work-from-home policies, further complicating the process. Combined, these changes impact how you can network, what you should expect from an interview, and how you can learn from your colleagues once on the job.nnBeing prepared for the impact these changes will have on getting hired and thriving at your new company is a critical first step. These microtalks will provide concrete, practical advice on non-traditional networking strategies when there are fewer in-person events to attend, what should you expect from the interview process when video interviews are on the rise, and how to best learn from your colleagues in an environment where you may not see them in person very often, if at all.
