Are you considering a career in the games industry?
Are you in high school, or looking to start a higher-ed course in games?
Do you live in Melbourne or regional Victoria? Are you free this weekend?
If any or all of these are true, you should get down to the Ballarat GiG – that’s Get Into Games, a career expo for those looking to… well, get into games!
Friday May 17th is for high school students, with information and discussions regarding opportunities in the technology sector, and the paths to take to get there.
Saturday May 18th will be more of an open day, allowing parents to get an idea of what their kids may be interested in studying. Visitors can chat to game and app developers, course coordinators and people in the media about the state of the games industry in Australia and the opportunities available. Or just come and enter the games competitions running throughout the afternoon.
As a Ballarat local myself, I’ll be flitting around over the weekend. Come and say hi!
