We want our members to feel empowered to learn about and pursue careers in the gaming industry.
Students are paired one-on-one with a professional in the gaming industry that matches their career interests. Mentees can use their mentors as a resource; they receive advice, support, and an inside perspective on working in games Mentor-mentee pairings are encouraged to meet online once every month during the academic year. CWG officers support mentees in reaching out to their mentor, monitor the status of pairings, and suggest topics for each call.
CWG board members have hosted professional development workshops on topics such as resumes, networking, and LinkedIn usage as well as interview prep and professional photoshoots.
CWG partners with local companies to bring members on studio tours. In the past, we’ve hosted studio tours to Electronic Arts (Redwood City), Twitch (San Francisco), and Ubisoft (San Francisco).
