Level Up: Building Your Game Development Career from Student to Professional
April 16, 2019 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
By Joshua Good
The most difficult step in landing any games industry job is getting your foot in the door. For students, many of whom lack the resources that can help so immensely in this process, the path is often unclear and can be profoundly stressful with the ever-increasing number of talented, aspiring developers entering the field. Join me in exploring the evolution of the Video Game Development Club at NC State, detailing how we grew from a small club of development hobbyists into a full production organization with industry-ready alumni. You will learn about how we’ve gone about building relationships with industry professionals, balancing active development time with academic responsibilities, and marketing the talents of aspiring developers to foster industry awareness.
