Q&A with Katherine
What is the best part about your current position?
I have a bird's eye view of everything happening in the company and get to help every department, not just my own.
Why did you choose to get your education from the Guildhall?
The Guildhall has professors that actually worked in the video game industry and helps its students get their foot in the doors of companies that otherwise would never look at a graduate.
How did the Guildhall prepare you for your career in gaming, and what impact has it had on your life?
The professors shared their experiences along with their skills which helped mentally prepare for life in the game industry.
What advice would you offer for students looking to get into gaming?
Not everyone ends up doing what they went to school for. I received my Masters in Art but now work in Tech — and I love working in Tech! Also, do not expect to get a job right away or the exact job you want. You may have to start at the very bottom of the totem pole before getting the Senior or Lead position, but it adds character and brings appreciation for where you've come from.
