Internship

Recommended Posts

Im a college student now and would really like to get some type of intership over the summer at a game company. Does anyone have any advice on doing this? I think I have a pretty decent resume as well as experience working in non-game software development (as well as a former boss who could vouche for my general knowledge, work ethic, etc). Where do I start? Thanks

Start sending your resume to companies (that you would like to work for), and hope they don''t trash it .

If they don''t trash it, hope everything goes well in the interview(s).

If everything goes fine, I suppose you have got yourself an internship.

Good Luck!

Don''t send your CV, they will think you are applying for a job. Write or better yet phone and ask to talk to the HR dept and ask them if the do internships. If the answer is "yes" ask them how you go about applying. Thank them, remember to ask their name and then write directly to them by name with your application.

Also if your at college then they should be helping to arrange internships. An "official" approach from a college is more likely to meet with success.

Remember, many small companies don''t bother with short term internships, and it''s mostly grunt work anyway. A typical summer intern hasn''t even been completely trained by the time they''re leaving your company to go back to school. Focus on large developers can afford to look at things with a more long-term view.
