Hi,

I have got a phone interview with EA in couple days. For this job

http://careersearch.ea.com/ca/burnaby/software-development/jobid4940612-software-engineer-i-ui-actionscript-ea-sports-fifa-jobs

 

My issue is that I have 2 years experience in Software testing and some development. But I have never worked on Games.. I did a openGL project in school but that's it.

I really want to this job and have always dreamed about working at EA.

Can someone give me any hints by looking at the description what I should concentrate on to prepare? thanks!

Start learning Flash and ActionScript ASAP and making some game menus, interfaces or simple gameplay!

 

Look at some EA Sports games, and try and remake their user-interfaces in Flash yourself (graphics don't matter, just functionality)

thanks Hodgman! I will take your advice and look into making that.

 

I would also appreciate if someone could elaborate on

• Integrate art content into the front end game engine.

• Develop tools, features and pipelines for the front end logic and screens.

 

how does one develop tools, pipelines for front end logic and screens. What does this mean? thank

Personally, I wouldn't focus too much on the exact job description (although if you've done no Flash at all, then it might be worth throwing yourself into it quickly). I would mainly focus on refreshing your knowledge of algorithms and data structures.

guys, I got the job! I really appreciate all the feedback, and I have to say part the reason was gamedev. Just by browsing the forums I learn so much.. we have a great community and contributors on here! :)
