Games Job Fair, a recruitment, networking, and career-building event for the games industry, announced its October iteration. The event will host games studios from Europe such as Remedy, FunPlus, InnoGames, Trailmix Games, and more, as well as over 1500 skilled game developers.
The conference will be held on October, 26-28 with the participation of such giant studios as Remedy, FunPlus, InnoGames, Trailmix Games, and more. As part of its opportunities available to job seeking devs, organizer Games Factory Talents will be hosting Programming and Art Challenges sponsored by attending studios.
Show Your Stuff, Get Feedback, Win Prizes
If you are an Unreal Engine developer, the Programming challenge designed around it will give you about 2 weeks to create a simple game, upload it to itch.io and provide the judges with the code. If you are among the three winners, your work will be reviewed by the Tech Leads of the sponsoring studios.
Similarly for Art, skilled game artists have the ability to feature their talent as an entry, with a sponsoring studio’s Art Lead up for reviewing and providing feedback upon the talent winning in a category.
During the event you can book one-on-one meetings with a talent or studio representative, participate in virtual booth networking, and use the respective group chat functions. Games Job Fair is also bringing back in-person meetings, as studios and talents can attend a short meet-up during the last day (October 28th) in Helsinki, Finland.
Attend diverse games industry talks and discussions by leading professionals such as “Creating your career in games,” “Changing pipelines, from Max to Blender,” “The evolution of Game Design tools and processes while growing a product,” “When it just isn’t working - Pivots,” and more.
Whether you’re looking for practical advice on your job search, ways to boost your brand, insight on the latest technologies used by studios, or a hands-on chance to hone your skills, there will be plenty of ways to achieve it all.
