The second, “How to get your dream job in game industry?”, led by studio HR executives, delved into the intricacies of careers in the gaming industry, providing invaluable insights for aspiring professionals.
Game Nexus emerged as an excellent sequel to the Vietnam Gamemaker conference, building on its success and sustaining the momentum and enthusiasm within the gaming community. The event successfully bridged boundaries, uniting industry professionals, students, and external speakers in a collective celebration of the vibrant world of game development.
Notably, 10 BUV students gained internship opportunities directly at Game Nexus, 3 of which will become job offers upon their graduation. This impressive achievement highlighted BUV GamePad’s dedication to bridging the gap between academia and industry, where they not only bring real-world experience to students, but also effectively display young talents to the booming industry.
As Games Nexus unfolded, attendees experienced an afternoon filled with exploration, collaboration, and a shared passion for the ever-evolving landscape of games development. The event stood as a testament to the intersection of education and industry, inspiring and engaging all those present.
