And the best bit is that jobseekers can attend free!
As you’re aware, many of the normal channels for recruitment have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, as well as other companies having to make difficult decisions with layoffs.
In order to support jobseekers during this difficult time and to help fill in some of the recruitment gaps, we will be running Pocket Gamer Connects Careers Week once again which is supported by our wonderful sponsors, Hutch and Rovio.
What can you expect from the Careers Week?
There’s a multitude of Careers Week related activities running all throughout the week of Helsinki Digital, one of which includes a daily recruitment hour in the Discord server. Every day from 3:00pm to 4:00pm (UK time), recruiters and jobseekers can gather in one of the Discord channels. Jobseekers can ask recruiters for advice on how to land their dream jobs and discuss what recruiters are looking for.
On Tuesday September 15th and Thursday September 17th, there are specific careers Q&As running where specialist recruiters in the games space can share focused information from a recruiters’ perspective.
Alongside the recruitment hours and careers Q&As, we have invited games industry professionals in the recruitment sphere to our event and curated focused recruitment talks, panels and roundtable discussions.
Additionally, you will be able to view all available job listings on our digital jobs board here and view supporting editorial coverage on PocketGamer.biz. All of our virtual attendees will also receive a mailout of key vacancies.
