I went to a career fair yesterday, and the four companies that I talked to (Blizzard, EA Games, Riot, and Disney Interactive Media) all indicated that your cover letter was more critical than your resume. I'm hoping to clear up exactly what position I want there. It's my understanding that general cover letter protocol starts with "I'm writing to apply for the X position."
I'm working on applying to those four studios. I'm really
trying to get into the assistant producer positions, though I'm skeptical of my success. Assuming that yields no results, I'll be trying to break in through QA.
Right now, I'm really just trying to network. I sent thank you letters to all studios I met with and am hoping I get response.
