In this 2019 GDC session Tara Brannigan, Robin Yang, and Elizabeth Sampat discuss why salary negotiation is important for your career in game development -- no matter who you are or where you start.
Their panel discussion on salary negotiation in the game industry was deeply insightful, as together they examined why you should never work for free and shared real-world examples and strategies for getting started with your own negotiations.
It was a useful and deeply relevant talk, so if you didn't have a chance to see it yet take advantage of the fact that this panel is now free to watch over on the official GDC YouTube channel!
