    Well, the trip to EA was pretty interesting. We got sprung with suprise interviews and 3 of us who travelled down, two Irish, will be starting working there this month. I, being completely unprepared for any type of interview make a hash of it :)
    On the plus side I now have contacts in EA :)

    Omen,

    Typical eh..I thought you guys were going down to present your project idea. So what kind of things were they looking for and asking about.

    So did we….

    The kinda sort you need to know is maths, physics, good coding skills, mainly C++ and knowing OO programming. Knowledge of scripting languages is a plus.
    Done a couple of interviews this week and it seems like the same stuff you get asked with special emphasis on certain areas dependent on the company you are with.

    Don’t they also ask for gaming industry experience ? It seems pretty tough to enter this industry if you are not part of it…

    They asked about demos i’ve done and what part i’ve taken in them. But they were people who knew I was a graduate so they knew I have no industry experience. But a grad from a recognised games course probably helps. The CV shows that.
