Rumor has it there will be another Game Career Fair in London this fall. I spoke there last year. There were some great companies looking to hire, too! And it was free!

Yeah, that was fun last year. Although alot of companies didn't seem very interested in students unless they were about to graduate...the talks were good though.

Adrir, did you end up going to Develop in Brighton?

I was there as a volunteer, if you went; one of those people in a massive yellow T-shirt pestering with forms and things!

I thought there were some great talks, I didn't get to go to all the ones I wanted as I had to stand in as a helper for some (especially audio), Johnathon Smiths' How to Make Children Cry was one of my favourites, he's always a good speaker!

Yeah. You might have noticed me because I knew Andrew Armstrong and kept bumping in to him. In particular, on the second day after the fire alarm since we were pretty much following the same track!

How did you go about getting a volunteer role?

Ahh yes I met Andrew there too, he's a great chat. Haha, I remember standing outside from the fire alarm and fire engine and an ice cream van pulled up outside

A friend of mine volunteered at Brighton last year, he knew the organiser so he just sent over an email asking if we could volunteer this year.

That's cool. Throw us a line if you're invited to volunteer again; I've still got two years of university left to play around with

Cool, well I have you on LinkedIn so when it gets nearer the time I'll message you on there! We could've done with a few more volunteers this year so I'm sure the organiser will be happy to have some extra people helping!

Awesome!

I'm sure if the organiser asked Jill, that they would be able to advertise here since it's a volunteer position that could quite possibly interest a lot of the aspiring game developers on this forum.
