In this 2017 GDC session, Ubisoft Toronto's Richard Carrillo reviews both sides of the game design interview process to help developers of all experience levels in their job search.
The nice thing about Carrillo's talk is that it offers perspective on both sides of the interview table. He shared some advice for hiring managers on what tools are needed to successfully determine quality talent, and also offered practical tips for candidates looking to strengthen their interview style.
It was a useful talk that revealed some of the strengths and weaknesses of the average game dev hiring process, and now you can watch it for free over on the official GDC YouTube channel!
