Default Resume/Portfolio/Blog Critique

Unfortunately, I missed this latest round of gaming internships and am now working at the same internship I've been with the last two summers. This summer, however, I got a promotion and now have a much more engaging project that I get to make real decisions on. It's still not in the gaming industry, however, which is where I really need to be.

I'm hoping someone can review my personal website:
http://www.MatthewEnthoven.com

Things I want to highlight:
- LootCouncil_Lite. This World of Warcraft addon is now at over 5,000 downloads. It's been a huge success that numerous guilds have been using on a weekly basis.
- Northwestern University. Most employers know this is a pretty prestigious University, and so I obviously want to show it off as much as possible.
- Promotion. Unfortunately, I'm having some trouble discussing exactly what the project is. Because it's a new product, I can't discuss any details at all.

Things I'm working on:
- Another World of Warcraft mod that plugs into the SimCraft application/framework.
- Designing a Starcraft 2 level once the game is fully released later this month.

I'd appreciate all comments! I've been trying to break into the industry for over a year now. I'm now going to be a senior, so I'm done looking at "just internships."

Well, I didn't have time to play it, but Tower Wars sounds very neat. It's also quite impressive you coded it/designed it yourself.

Tower Wars seems a lot more impressive to me than the WoW AddOn on first impression, so I would suggest putting Tower Wars first.

Also, I read some of your blog. I think a lot of people in the industry would be impressed that you've been leading raids for 8 years with significant success. I know of at least one person who claimed that that was a key factor in them getting the good job they had.

Good luck!
