Let’s explore, 6 free tips, that will help YOU get a job in this industry faster!

Also, you will improve your CV creation skills!


1st Tip

Industry-Relevant CV Details

  • Ensure your CV showcases industry-specific expertise. Avoid generalities like “IT software” if the job demands a gaming experience. Tailor your CV to align with the specific needs mentioned in the description. You can include a summary highlighting your experience in the industry.

2nd Tip

Highlight Your Passion

  • Even without direct industry experience, demonstrate your enthusiasm. Incorporate a brief mention of hobbies or activities related to gaming to showcase your genuine interest and understanding.
  • We have an entire article regarding “Passion”. It is called “Is passion “a critical must-have” for a career in games recruitment?”. Check it!

3rd Tip

Personalize Your Application

  • If the job is your top choice, state why! Share why this role resonates with you and mention your fervor for the gaming industry. Take advantage of LinkedIn’s feature to mark it as a top choice!
  • Look, I am a recruiter for a full-time job. I’ve spent my last 5 years in gaming, and I’ve been a gamer since I know myself. I review CVs daily and talk with worldwide industry professionals, and everyone says the same thing: Personalize your application. If you do not show WHY, you won’t get the job. Especially if you are not from Games!

4th Tip

Leverage Networking Opportunities:

  • Reach out to the person who posted it. Personalized messages can leave a positive impression. Networking often opens doors that a standard application might not. Still, be patient in receiving an answer!
  • Embrace this path and uncover the true meaning of success beyond superficial achievements and titles.

5th Tip

Don’t Hesitate If You Understand the Industry

  • Even if you don’t meet all the role criteria but possess a profound understanding of games and the industry, apply!
  • Your insight could make you a great fit, providing a valuable chance for success.
