Quotes From Past Interns

Without the Interns International program, I would not be where I am today working in my dream field. I had a hard time after college finding a job, and in after only 6 months of the Interns International Program, I was hired at Microsoft.

Eve C.Without the Interns International program, I wouldnt be where I am today

I went from Intern to League Of Pros member in less than a year. After graduating Full Sail University with a Game Design Degree I couldn't find work for months after graduation. I dedicated myself fully to the program to learn and receive mentorship and within a few short months I am now a Producer at Gamevil, and even giving talks at GDC based on my work with Games For Love. This Program Changed my life!

My mentors helped me fix some issues on my resume, and because of that, I was able to be selected for an Interview with IGG. Once my foot was in the door, that was all I needed to have a chance...my life is better because of Games for Love because of the support from team members and made many new friends.

I'm grateful for all the work I get to do with the organization. It's been an awesome way to grow personally and professionally, but even more fulfilling is it gives me an opportunity to help others. And of course, when networking or doing interviews, it's a great experience to bring up.

When I joined, I had little to no experience in the field working on a team, so the chance to gain that was really valuable for me. That experience helped me to land a job at a fortune 500 company.

Working on a game together with the GFL taught me something I would not dare to aim for in the past. I could develop games to influence people to better themselves, or I could explore more career options as a software developer and work with developers to create software that can assist people in their daily life like water purification, AI machine, quantum computation, its daring for me to imagine but my goal is to help people with my development, like how GFL want to help children in hospital.

Being a woman in games is challenging and the gaming industry has a catch 22 in that you need the experience to get in, even out of University. The Games For Love Internship program, gives the perfect middle ground needed to take control of your career. They have thoughtful mentors, a well-thought-out program, and exciting projects. This was everything I needed to show I could do this.
