Alex will be sharing even more tips on her new YouTube series to help job seekers in the gaming industry improve their chances of getting hired for positions while avoiding inevitable mistakes that could hinder their efforts.
In this episode, Alex talks about the importance of numbers when applying to an onsite or remote video game job.
“Be as quantifiable as possible,” she says. Answer questions such as
- How many people did you lead on your team?
- How many downloads did the app you developed have?
- How many servers were there?
Any opportunity to discuss and showcase your past work with numbers will impress recruiters and ensure you stand out from other applicants. This is especially important in the current 2021 video game job market.
