East Coast Game Conference 2013


I spent the last two days meeting new people and catching up with old friends at ECGC. It’s one of my favorite events of the year and this go-round I had the enjoyable duty of giving a talk on getting into the industry and being  a good team member.

If you were able to catch my talk, ‘You’re Hired! How to Nail the Interview and Stick the Landing for Artists and Designers’ and want to squirrel away the slides for future reference, or if you missed the talk and want to conduct a self-guided tour, check back this weekend for the slides!

Btw, if you saw my talk, I’d super appreciate it if you’d take 1 minute to give my session an official conference review here: http://www.ecgconf.com/speakers/speaker/Jennifer+Canada

And I’d love to hear from you in comments below!  What did you think?  Any info you’re planning to act on?

  1. I was a volunteer so I couldn’t attend many speakers, but I’m glad I was able to attend your talk and get some rally great pointers out of it. My resume is something that seriously needs to be redone and I think once I’ve followed your advice and reworked both it and my portfolio, I’ll be more confidant in applying for more opportunities.

    Your talk was the only one on the career track that I attended, and I was so glad I did. The information that you gave was very useful, and I am currently rewriting my resume based on what I learned from you. Also, the information on what is being looked for in a portfolio was useful as well, so as I build mine up I now know what to do and not to do to get looked at. I will be more confident now when applying for jobs. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us at ECGC.

      Thanks, Jennifer! I also rewrite my resume many times before I submit it. I think of it as doing passes to improve it. =D Good luck!

    Thanks so much for your talk Jennifer! I’m a student at North Carolina State University I didn’t get a chance to introduce myself after your lecture, but I really enjoyed everything you shared, and it will really help me when it comes time for applying to places. Looking forward for the slide upload. :)
