Career Fair

Ever wonder what it took to get in front of some of the top local companies or how to create your own company from the ground up? Come meet several local professionals in the gaming, design, immersive learning/eLearning, and CGI animation industries at the upcoming Triangle Game Conference (April 7-8).

Whether attendees seek direction, mentoring or collaboration the Triangle Game Conference Career Lounge presents a unique opportunity to meet experienced professionals representing several of the industry’s leading developers, publishers and innovators.

North Carolina is home to a fast-growing and dynamic hub for gaming, immersive learning and digital media. We want to provide a hands-on opportunity to enable you to meet industry professionals and hear first-hand how they navigated the frequently shifting landscape of this cutting-edge industry. Each industry professional will hold a 45 minute session to talk about what it took to get where they are, how they prepared for their interviews, a day in the life at work or how they started up their own companies. These sessions will be informal and collaborative, conducted in an open floor roundtable environment. So get your questions ready or just come and listen.

Also in the Career Lounge you will have direct access to local companies that are currently hiring and the opportunity to apply for posted positions through onsite computer kiosks whether it’s an internship or Management level position you’re interested in. Remember to bring an electronic version of your resume to submit online.

Want to get a quick critique of your work? We’ll also have a demo kiosk area setup in the Career Lounge to view your portfolio via the web, disk or drive.

Check the list below to learn which the industry professional whose story interests you will be speaking!
