Looking for a job in the video game industry? Well we have a full day of careers advice, CV polishing, job opportunities and more as part of Gayming Live, which is being held throughout London from Monday September 30th.
On Wednesday October 2nd, people interested in a career in games are invited along to Soho Radio on Great Windmill Street, London, where staff from multi-award-winning specialist games recruitment agency Amiqus will be on hand to provide advice on the multitude of positions options available – and, importantly, how to get a foot on the careers ladder. What’s more, visitors to the event will be even be able to apply for jobs there and then.
This event is suitable for people of all levels, whether you’re new to the industry, or a seasoned pro looking for their next big move!
In addition, there will be a series of careers-focused radio shows broadcast throughout the day. These can be accessed via www.sohoradiolondon.com.
“We’re delighted to be able to be hosting the Careers Day during the Gayming Live week,” said Liz Prince, Business Manager at Amiqus. “We know that there are many, many students who desperately want to move into the exciting world of video games, but don’t know where to start. Similarly, we want to show those who aren’t necessarily gamers that there’s a place for them within games – whether that’s in programming, marketing, design, audio, media or beyond. We look forward to welcoming anyone with an interest in games to Soho Radio.”
Robin Gray, Co-Founder of Gayming Magazine, and the brainchild of Gayming Live added: “Our Careers Day during Gayming Live is for everyone with an interest in working in games, not just those within the LGBTQ community. We look forward to welcoming students and more along to Soho House, and hopefully kickstarting some new careers!”
