The Game Assembly’s Meet and Greet

The 21st-22nd of April 2021 we held our annual Meet & Greet, and it was a great success! This year’s edition was carried out in cooperation with MeetToMatch. Students from both the Malmö and Stockholm school attended, and met with 45 companies from 5 different countries. Together they had a total of 1658 meetings!

About The Game Assembly’s Meet and Greet

At Meet and Greet, we gather game companies for a fair like set up where the students can come to introduce themselves and show off their portfolios, in search for internship. Around 40 game companies from different countries attends The Game Assembly’s Meet and Greet.

If your company is looking for interns, Meet and Greet is the perfect place for you to meet our students and to find interns that matches your company’s needs.

A few days before the Meet and Greet we will send out the link to the students portfolios to all the participating companies so that they can get acquianted with the students before the event. The Meet and Greet is our embargo date and we ask all companies NOT to make contact with our students to offer internship before this day.

We encourage the participating companies to visit the school (when possible) before the Meet and Greet to hold a lecture and meet our students. This can also be held online. Let us know if you are interested in this!

About the internship

The next internship period starts on the 30th of August 2021.
For Game Programmers, Game Animators, Level Designers, and Game Artists, the internship is a total of 30 weeks, and for the Technical Artists, 20 weeks.

96% of our students got their internship at companies that attended Meet and Greet in 2019!

The internship course is an essential part of the student’s education and The Game Assembly’s students are well equiped through the courses at school. Before taking in an intern, it is very important to make sure that your company have the time and opportunity to give guidence for the entire internship period. The student need to be appointed a supervisor that provides guidence and tasks throughout the internship. This supervisor need to have at least 2 years of experience within the area they are supervising. Half way into the internship The Game Assembly makes a visit at the company to both meet the student and the supervisor, making sure that everything is coming along smoothly.
