#4967157 Chances of getting a job at Gamestop

Posted by on 07 August 2012 - 03:37 PM

On a side note, I live in South Florida. There's a Dunkin Donuts next to a GameStop in my area. I'm close with the manager, so he doesn't mind if I just hang in the store while I wait for friends to show up at DD.

It's so much fun hearing people...talk about games. Not defending, flame wars, anything like that.
Seeing kids pick up a Fire Emblem DS Game "This is stupid!"
Someone picks up Rogue Warrior "Yo, this game looks tight!"
Mothers coming in and asking the reps (and even sometimes me) on what to buy for their kids.

It's...neat. Seeing all these different people, that you normally only really see in a game, in forums, or not at all....just shop.
It's neat. And sometimes when I'm just free writing, I'll start thinking about those people, "Hey, what would they wanna play?"

This might not get you anywhere drastic, but I love it when I see some people not play a game because it doesn't have MP, or the box art is lame to them.

Opinion are opinions, that's their right, but it's sometimes cool to absorb 'em.

Anyway, in my region, it's just a job application (and now it looks to be a background check, too) form to find here. https://gamestopcareerscorp.silkroad.com/GameStopCorporate/EmploymentListings.html

Look at about the third or forth Box (Keyholders and Game Advisers)
I'm not saying don't hand in that Resume (put your name and contact information on it), staple it all together and go to one as many as you can (my GS's share employees like crazy, don't quite know why).

You might want highlight your fundraising efforts a little more, the stores get noted on their subscriptions and PowerUp sales each month, so you have to be able to respectably highlight that to a customer.

That being said, it looks alright. You might want to format the intro paragraph a little bit better.
I have a professional profile and a personal profile where I separate my job talents from my regular talents. And use TNR 12font or Ariel 10, just so it's a lil' clearer to read.

I think some mild details are needed.

I just pictured SNES-era style gameplay.

Console based, then goes into XNA, but awesome resource, IMO

#4873947 How to "care" about programming?

Posted by on 18 October 2011 - 09:31 AM

I mean, this is gonna make me sound silly, but I only want to program TO make my own design prototypes.
I don't want to program. I want to program to aid my design.
