video game industry Trek
Join us for our Video Game Industry Trek! Our New York City day trip will be led by our HireEdge Guide Laura Fortner. Host companies on our tour are involved with game development, global game licensing, eSports league management, and video game industry related media and sponsorship development.
Our first stop will be Twitch, the live streaming social video platform where millions of people gather every month to broadcast, watch and talk about video games. We'll learn more about this influential platform and ways the company partners with their broadcaster creators, teams, leagues, tournaments and brands. We'll also hear more about the company, now owned by Amazon, and career opportunities within this expanding organization.
Next we'll visit Activision (creator of famous games Call of Duty, Guitar Hero and Skylanders), Blizzard (creator of Overwatch and Hearthstone) and Major League Gaming (MLG), the professional eSports organization. We’ll hear more about their latest initiatives, trends in the industry, how these companies are organized and the variety of career paths available.
