CAREER LOUNGE

APRIL 18TH & 19TH, 2018
AT THE RALEIGH CONVENTION CENTER
One of the most popular events at the East Coast Game Conference returns! We will host the Career Lounge and portfolio critique sessions in its own private room this year during both days of the conference. This is where professionals in the games industry will participate in open floor, informal, and collaborative session discussions on day-to-day operations in their prospective fields.

For the Critiques

Things will be a little different this year as our portfolio critique area will consist of small groups of 4 together to go through each persons “best” piece from your portfolio and the pros will critique it in front of the group. This way you can see each other’s work and learn as you listen through each critique. The session will run for 30 minutes for each group. This part of the Career Lounge was so popular we added in more great industry professionals to help evaluate and elevate your portfolio.

For the Roundtables

The setting is still very casual with bean bag chairs and cubes. The sessions will be at separate times from the critique sessions. The roundtable is a general discussion giving the opportunity for attendees to ask more questions, so you’ll get a good understanding of the industry. They’ll talk on how they got into the industry, tips & tricks, developing a marketable portfolio, and things not to do!
