GameJobHunter on Alltop

I discovered Alltop a few months back, and I’ve found myself checking it on a more regular basis just about every week.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s a project from marketing guru Guy Kawasaki.  The concept is pretty simple – it’s a content aggregator that allows you to browse articles form a variety of sources.  For me, it was … Read More

IGDA Orlando – June Meeting

If you’re in the Orlando area, come out next week to the June meeting of the Orlando IGDA chapter.  Orlando might not have the biggest game development community, but we’ve got a pretty active active presence at the monthly meetings.  It’s a nice mix of developers and students, and the meetings are always very casual.  Check out the Facebook invite … Read More

Game Industry Networking

I found this article from Dave Edery last week, and I’ve been meaning to pass it on and comment.  Dave makes some really great points, and you should read the whole post.  For me, it boils down to a few simple things – talk/listen to people, treat them with respect, and be willing to help out if you can.  That … Read More

Welcome to Harmonix

Harmonix posted their first ad today, so I wanted to welcome them to the site.  The creators of Rock Band need no introduction – hell, even my wife (the quintessential non-gamer) is starting to play bass on medium.  I exchanged e-mails with their recruiter, Kevin Fanning, today, and he says they should have more jobs to post in the near … Read More

I’m a little late with this one – NCsoft has actually had ads going up since last week.  It looks like they’re hiring for just about every disicipline, at every level, at every studio!  They’ve got ads for positions at all of their studios – Carbine, Paragon, NCsoft Austin, ArenaNet and NCsoft Corporate.  That covers Seattle, Austin, the SF Bay … Read More

GJH Links

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but I finally got around to adding a Links area to the blog.  I’ve broken it into 2 sections, and I plan on continually adding to it.  The first section is for “Friends of GJH” – these are companies or people that we’ve got a close relationship with.  They’re all up … Read More

Game Industry Layoffs – 6300 Looking for Work

This is a sobering article from Gamasutra – they estimate that around 6300 North American video game developers have been laid off and are on the hunt for a new job.  The past year has seen big developers shedding jobs and studios shutting their doors, despite the continual drum beat from just about everyone that the games industry is “recession-proof.” … Read More

Boston Hosting Indie Games Conference East

I put together a list of upcoming video game conferences last month, and it looks like I left one off the list.  The Independent Game Conference East is actually starting today and lasts 2 days.  It looks like they’ve got a nice list of speakers and sessions set up, from leading names in the indie scene to exectuives at AAA … Read More

Welcome to Giant Sparrow

About a week ago, I saw someone tweet about a new game from a studio called Giant Sparrow.  The title of the game is “The Unfinished Swan.”  Check out the video: The tech demo looks incredible, so I immediately fired off an e-mail to them.  As it turns out, they’re hiring, and they just posted an ad today!  They’re located … Read More

Welcome to Large Animal Games

Big welcome to Large Animal Games (follow them on Twitter) – they posted several ads today, and pushed us over the 100 job mark!  Large Animal was founded in 2001, and is located in Manhattan.  They’ve published and developed a BUNCH of casual games over the years, and they show no signs of slowing.  They actually just had an article … Read More
