Happy Friday!

Next Thursday is the launch of our first meet up for the semester. This one will focus on careers in video game design with professionals from Activision (CALL OF DUTY, SKYLANDERS, GUITAR HERO). If you haven't been to a meet up before, it's a casual event where you can learn more about career paths and/or network with professionals working for an employer of interest.


Similarly, if you're curious about ways to use creative skills within the tech sector, check out the info sessions with Google on Sep 25 & 27 and Facebook on Oct 5. And Friday, Sep 29th is our Graduate School Fair. Details for events below and on TribeCareers.
