This week me and my boss Ola went to the “Meet & Greet” event with aspiring game developers studying computer game development, at The Game Assembly school. As a final course of the school the students complete a 7 months internship on a game company.
We were hoping to spread the word about our company and get some 3D artist and programmers as interns. It was a pleasant surprise that so many of the students remembered the metrics focused lecture I gave at Swedish Game Awards: South conference, a couple of weeks ago.Even some of the other professional game developers attenting the “M&G” came up to say “hi” and wanted to talk about the lecture.
This year the competition for skilled interns was fierce, companies like DICE, Easy, Massive, IO and other big fishes also wanted to get hold of some fresh students.
After meeting with the students we all headed for the pub and some beers. I spent my night mostly talking to an old friend who now is the studio manager at Paradox South. Anyways, I already got some CV:s in my in-box from the students, let’s hope we are able to offer some internships for them after the summer!
