Specifically game development (Obviously :P). So far, I have contacted: -PopCap -Jolt -Microsoft And I was wondering if there was any other companies which I may have missed which may be good. Thanks in Advanced! :) Gavin Pacini September 13, 2011 at 7:24 am #47356 AnonymousInactive Small company: http://2paperdolls.com/ September 13, 2011 at 9:08 am #47357 AnonymousInactive The more you try, the higher the probability for success: http://www.gamedevelopers.ie/companies/ Ask as many as you can.

You can sit in on the various game development classes. Good luck Owen September 13, 2011 at 12:05 pm #47359 Aphra KKeymaster In my experience you also need to show you can do something for them…so if you have particular skills in software programmes, or art/drawing or music then let them know. Also it depends on the time of year and how long you want good luck Aphra. October 11, 2011 at 11:07 pm #47504 AnonymousInactive Thanks for all the replies. @Richard Sneyd Doh! I totally missed the companies list at the top of the page, will get in contact. Cheers! @owenllharris I didn’t know they did that, I think that would be really cool! I might contact them soon. Thanks! @aphra Yeah, I have done a lot of programming with C++, Objective-C and C# (I like the C family :P) so I have been making a big point of it. Thanks again lads!
