What if you’re a recent graduate wondering how you can put that diploma to good use and have an interest to work in the games industry?
Well, you might be in luck because Ubisoft is starting a graduate program later this year to give recent college graduates who are interested in video game programming and project management the chance of a lifetime to gain experience in the industry.
The program, which will begin in September, will offer 25 graduates from around the world the opportunity to work with Ubisoft development and business teams in France, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Romania, the U.K., Canada and the U.S.
The first year of the two-year program will place the graduate at a local studio in their home country. Then the following year will be spent at a studio abroad, where the graduate will be compensated for their housing and relocation costs. At the end of the second year, graduates will begin a long-term assignment at a local studio.
The selected individuals will earn a salary that “will be adapted to each local market.” The goal of the program is to provide four years of experience across two years.
The deadline to get your application is March 15. The graduates will be selected by April 30. For more information on the program, visit the Ubisoft Blog.
