Im a year 13 student form Northern Ireland and am lokoing for a game design company in northern Ireland prefferably Belfast that would take on a student for work experience. Any help would be big help as I can’t find any at all.

can you give more details?
work experience for how long?
what area are you interested in – design, programming?
what kind of skills do you think you have already?
If you want to stay in Belfast I would advise you to look at graphic design and other media companies as well as there are not that many game companies in Northern Ireland, and most as far as I know are outside Belfast.

Maybe we should have some sort of sticky with the details people should be providing when they’re seeking work experience, it seems to have come up quite a bit recently.

Thing is, we always end up giving the exact same advice too…
Maybe should put a FAQ section on the front page and make that the number on question. Others could be questions on books to recommend, info on uni courses, etc…

Yes, was just talking about the frequency of certain questions with folks yest…
FAQ not a bad idea at all..

I think sticky threads have been done for several things, but they aren’t usually seens when new people come on board looking for specific things, they tend to go straight to the forums. An FAQ section clearly labelled on the front pages should alleviate some of these regular posts going over the same topics.
Another faq could be regarding dare entries

For work experience anything in the game designing industry would be grand and its for roughly 3 days early 2007.
