Please note, anything I say is personal and by no way represents the view of demonWare.
Why? Because I’m not allowed have a view. [/quote:39f5b08aad]

Why are none of these places keen to hire skilled graduates :confused:
We have to start somewhere

As Kapooki have repeatedly said….they are a lonely beginning developer (although I’m sure they’d phrase it much more elegantly :p) and don’t have titles to their name to boost there reputation. As such, they need to prove themselves as being able to fulfill the job required by having skilled employees proving their effectiveness as a team. Once a reputation is cemented by doing this, then graduates can be taken on. They need proven team members to get them recognised first.

Even alot of estabhished companies are a bit flaky about hiring graduates, which is a bit silly.
I’d say its harsher on the coding side where experience counts more.

I haven’t encountered that….only spoken to one company who said they didn’t hire grads, and they did that in the middle of my interview which REALLY sucked.

I’m just back in Ireland having served my 4 years on Abertay’s game tech degree course and I’m a little offput by the lack of opportunities as well as the experience requirements.
Oddly Real-Time Worlds (based in Dundee, formerly the Rage offices) sent an email throughout Abertay Computing Science and Computer Game Technology courses proclaiming jobs for graduates but when people applied for them they were told that they didn’t want graduates……..who’d want to work in games, eh?

Yeah, I got that mail too. I know one of the producers in there, kept nagging him about it and then one day it was, oh….you’re not listed for that job, maybe next time. Wasn’t impressed with that one at all. But it is fair to say that RTW are very busy at the moment.
