Game Development Career Fair

Connecting today’s top studios with tomorrow’s top talent

The SMU Guildhall Career Fair connects game development students and alumni with the industry’s top game studios and tech companies. During the Fair, hiring employers speak with and interview game development job seekers in the graduating cohort, as well as alumni seeking new opportunities. A networking reception precedes the event, priming job candidates in the graduating cohort and company representatives for a productive following day.
