Default Obsidian Entertainment - Bringing Kickstarts and Students Together

April 20th, 2012, 11:22
Chris Avellone is obviously looking to give back a little, offering to hook up Kickstarter projects that might benefit from the services of interns, students and juniors with the pool of applicants that Obsidian receives:
Obsidian gets applicants for internships all the time from schools across the States, and it may be that if you're forming a Kickstarter, you may need a lot of technical, production, and development help for tasks that students and juniors would love to do to contribute to their careers and education.

If you're running a Kickstarter and would like to consider a pool of applicants to help you hit your game's mark, let us know - there may be interns/juniors in your area or could assist remotely with your tasks and help your game shine. If this is something you're interested in exploring, drop me a line at CAvellone@obsidian.net.

If you're a junior or intern, this isn't a call to send a resume - only await more information. Hopefully, this "kickstarts" some job opportunities and gets folks started up the career ladder. Overall, the hope is Kickstarter may be able to provide more job opportunities to junior and intern students that may be problematic at larger studios.

Chris
More information.

Actually he specifically mentions that this is about people who already applied at Obsidian and the call is for people who are starting a Kickstarter and are interested in exploring this pool of applicants and see if there are candidates that interest them. I don't know where you see money being involved O_o

I'm not a bug, I'm a feature!
