Does SMU Guildhall help students find jobs?
Yes. Upon starting the program, students are introduced to the career development process through meetings with the Manager of Career Development. Throughout their time at SMU, they'll receive instruction in career planning, creating resume and cover letters, professional and social networking, interview techniques, and develop online portfolios. Our students also attend the leading game industry conferences, participate in campus job fairs, and attend career workshops.

Am I guaranteed a job or internship by attending SMU Guildhall?
