Achievement Unlocked: Writing Successful Resumes and Cover Letters for AAA Game Studios

Such is the power of the written and the spoken word. In this talk, Brian Cho (TPM, Media/Gaming @ Akamai) imparts critical advice on how to perfect your resume, cover letter, and interviewing strategy in order to start landing bigger, better, and more interviews and job offers – the kind of strategy that recently brought him opportunities at Riot, ArenaNet, and Rockstar Games, to name a few.
