Game Dev Portfolio Posse [Limited Sign-ups!]

  • HOFT Institute 2400 Pearl Street Austin, TX, 78705 United States (map)

Are you seeking your first job in the video games industry? Do you have the skills you need to be in the credits?


Bring your laptop or tablet, loaded with your portfolio, and a resume. You will get a 1 on 1 review from Austin's top industry professionals, at this FREE event!

A Portfolio Posse is when job seekers are paired with a professional in a similar specialty, and have 15 minutes to review a porfolio and/or resume from the job seeker. The reviewee may visit multiple reviewers, and the reviewer may take longer than 15 minutes to review, at their discretion. It's one step removed from a real job interview, and practice for the real thing!

HOFT Institute offices are at the corner of 24th Street and Pearl, walking distance from UT-Austin campus and the West Mall Station, accessible by MetroBus and MetroRail. Visit CapitalMetro or RideAustin for those options. Parking on site is available.

NOTE TO REVIEWERS: This signup is ONLY for those seeking reviews. If you would like to participate in Portfolio Posse as a reviewer, please contact the organizer, John Henderson, at johnh at hoft dot edu.
