Is the event free?
Yes! The event is free for all talents, although we do screen all received applications. If your profile is industry related and includes all of the necessary information, you are invited. If you are attending the onsite event (28 April), an entry fee of 15 Euros is applicable.
Is the event still online?
Absolutely! Games Job Fair Spring 2023 will be online for all three days (April 26-28). We are onsite on Day 3 of the event, but all sessions will be streamed online.
Will I get an interview with a participating studio?
This is unfortunately something we cannot promise you. We encourage all attendees to network with the recruiters from the participating studios. This can be done via text chat of the studio's virtual booth or by requesting a meeting from the recruiter. The recruiter will view your profile and accept or decline your meeting request accordingly.
How long do I have to network with studios on the event platform?
You can join the platform 2 weeks before the event's first day, during which participating studio members can already be reached through chats, or scheduled meetings. The platform remains open for your needs for 2 weeks after the last event day as well.
Where can I see all the job opportunities?
Featured positions for the event will be available on our Career Wall by mid-March, and you can directly apply through it! Once the platform is open for networking you will be able to view all the jobs by the participating studios.
What if I can't find a suitable position or a suitable company, but still want to relocate to Europe?
No worries, just keep in touch with us for future opportunities! New companies and new openings pop up all the time. You can still apply for the event, send an Open Application through our website, or even follow the career opportunities channel on our Discord server. We will contact you if we find a good fit!
