Video: Game career advice from women who have been there and done that

This fantastic series of microtalks (delivered at GDC 2017's Game Career Seminar) offers would-be game devs (especially women) some career advice gleaned from notable devs' own industry experiences.

Getting started in the game industry is hard! Luckily, there are lots of people who have done it and are passionate about helping others do the same.

A number of those people took the stage at the Career Seminar during GDC 2017 to offer would-be game devs -- especially women -- some advice gleaned from their own experiences entering the game industry and working at companies like Hangar 13 (Mafia III), Microsoft/343 Industries (Halo 5) and more.

It was a great set of microtalks, packed with advice meant to help anyone who has felt marginalized, pushed aside, or lacking in confidence.

It's well worth watching, as you'll probably walk away with practical tips and tricks you can use on your path to a meaningful career in game development. Now, you can do so completely free via the official GDC Vault YouTube channel!
