The Number One Educational Resource for the Game Industry

Session Name:

Game Career Seminar: Build Your Promotability or Honor Your Values? Why Not Both!


In games, as in many other industries, there's a pervasive mythos that "It's a dog eat dog world." And sometimes, as we watch the layoff notices pile up, we start to believe that. But fortunately, life is not a zero sum game. It is absolutely possible to build a long, healthy career in the game industry by creating opportunities for yourself and for others, by raising your own voice and amplifying marginalized voices, and by caring about both profits and people. Will this approach lead to endless riches? Almost certainly not. But it should lead you to a long and healthy career that you can actually enjoy.
