  1. Hopefully that didn't stop you from trying though smile.png

    I was recently hailed from abroad for an interview at a place I didn't even know of. You never know when someone might need someone with your more "specific skills".

    They don't necessarily need a Senior Level Designer, they might need one with experience with a very specific gameplay (say, Action-Adventure, or side-scroller, etc.) which you might turn out to be.

    Try to shine your unique talents within your field and see if it garners some interest?


    Thanks Orymus3 ! Yeah, I don't necessarily need to be a Senior Level Designer, I can modelise in 3ds max, script some stuff, etc I try to learn new skills while waiting! smile.png

  2. French-Speaking Level Designer?
    Yes !


    My reasoning is that they're likely to find better candidates locally. That being said, a few of my former colleagues from Quebec and Montreal are now in various studios in the US (including Activision Blizzard namely) so it's not impossible, even for French (I'm assuming this is your first language as you have stated you were from Canada?).
    Yes, that's what I thought! tongue.png 

  3. thanks for all your tips!

    It's really appreciated biggrin.png


    @gambo: the problem with the H-1B visa is that it take 6 months before I can work with it..  (companies will never do that, way too long)


    "Individuals are not able to apply for an H1B visa to allow them to work in the US. The employer must petition for entry of the employee."

    "Employers can apply as soon as April 2, 2012 for the FY 2013 cap, but the beneficiary cannot start work until October 1, 2012."

  4. Hello!


    I'm currently looking for a job (senior level designer) for almost a year, and most of the game companies never replied.
    I'm from Canada, I have no university education, but I have more than 10+ years of experience in the video game industry. I worked on some major AAA's and on more than 20 projects overall. Could I work in the US or it is too complicated for HRs to hire me?
    (Like you see, my english is not perfect - it's not my first language). Any tips? thanks! biggrin.png

    Hey just don't give up, I've been unemployed for a year, and I have more than 10+ years of experience in the gaming industry. No one wants to hire me...

    How recent is your experience?


    I worked on major AAA as a Level Designer, and I sent my resume to many companies but most of them never replied. Maybe because I don't have a US work visa to work there, and no one want to sponsor me...
