A Games Career is Calling at Mighty Kingdom
One thing is apparent in the Australian and New Zealand games industry and that is it is chock full of talent. The fact that video game development is so strong in the land of the ANZAC is a testament to this, especially when you consider the government has basically ignored video games entirely until recently.
Australia and NZ have a host of quality tertiary courses that take aspiring developers and mould them into the games creators of tomorrow. But how do these people get their foot in the door? Fresh out of Uni, what is next? Well, SA based developer Mighty Kingdom has something that may help, a brand new intake for their Graduate program.
A new graduate program has just launched at Mighty Kingdom and applications open today for one week. Up for grabs is a 12 month paid position at one of Australia’s biggest developers. A press release explains more:
From design and art to animation and real game dev project experience, Mighty Kingdom’s Graduate Program offers employment, professional and personal development opportunities, mentorship and guidance for recent graduates.
On top of this, they’ll have the opportunity to work side by side with a strong and progressive team of creatives with an exceptional workplace culture.
Designed to create industry pathways into the world of game development for young people who may otherwise not have had the opportunity, the program aims to attract a wide and diverse talent pool of ready-to-be future leaders and help them realise their full potential.
To be eligible for Mighty Kingdom’s Graduate Program, applicants must meet the following criteria:
• Have graduated (a relevant field of study) within 12 months of applying
• Full working rights in Australia
• Adelaide-based, or willing to relocate
Established by Mighty Kingdom Founder and Managing Director Philip Mayes in 2017, more than 30 people have gone through Mighty Kingdom’s Graduate Program since its inception – all securing paid roles with the company.
So if this sounds like something you want to be a part of, then get a wriggle on. Applications are open now and close on the 7th of December. You can head to www.mightykingdom.com for more information.
Good luck prospective game maker, Player 2 is cheering you on!
