A speed dating event between potential employers and employees and a stepping stone into the industry for Boden Game Camp’s students. The Ting recruitment fair evoked many emotions.
For the second year in a row, The Ting recruitment fair was organized at Boden Business Park in Sävast. There, students had a chance to meet representatives from gaming companies in the gaming industry in the hope of getting a six-month internship. With an emphasis on one chance.
The format is that each student has 15 minutes to introduce themselves. During this time, the company and the student also have the opportunity to ask each other questions.
– Companies have access to their portfolio and can see what they have done. The aim here is to gain an understanding of the person who might be of interest,” says Hanna Müller, business developer at Boden Game Camp.
One of the students who took advantage of the opportunity was Gautjam Sathish, a second year Game Artist, who came well prepared.
– I have tried to read up on the companies, asked questions to students who attended the event last year and made contacts via Linkedin. This is a great opportunity to get into the industry so I want to make a good impression,” he says.
There was a somewhat nervous atmosphere, but the conversations with companies were often described as positive and enjoyable.
One who was also excited was Hanna Müller, who summed up the day as very successful.
– It has been particularly fun to meet the companies that were here last year and found trainees then. They were very happy and said that this was the reason they came back.
– The goal is for this to lead to a job after the training, so it is good that there was a variety of large and small companies. “There are advantages to starting in a smaller company and seeing the whole process, but at the same time it’s great that there are opportunities to get into a larger company as well,” she says.
