GCG Feature: 'The mtvU Journals: The Fellowship'

In a three part series on Game Career Guide about the mtvU and Cisco Systems Digital Incubator grant for projects on broadband programming and mtvU Fellowships, part two journals the New York University team leader's Fellowship.
In this Game Career Guide feature, New York University student Oren Ross follows up part one of the mtvU Journals, which described the mtvU and Cisco Systems Digital Incubator grant for projects on broadband programming won by the New York University team's game snagu. In part two, Ross delves into a second mtvU opportunity, the Fellowship, which he introduces in the following excerpt: "When snagu won the grant, I got a chance to speak with some of the people involved in the Fellowship and asked them for some inside assistance. They were all smiles and said they would “see what they could do.” I hadn’t heard from them when classes ended, which put me into an anxious mood. I started applying to internships at companies in the area that had an involvement in gaming, and was having a hard time finding one in New York City, even though I had a solid resume with some great video game related experience. I got some friends involved in my job search, asking if they knew of anything else I could apply to. One of my friends sent it to his mom, who turned out to be very helpful, but it ultimately did not lead to any jobs. The summer was starting; I got back to New York from E3 and visiting my family in Los Angeles, and still had no offers. When I finally got an email asking if I was available for an interview, I felt a huge load had been lifted as I entered into the second phase." You can now read the full Game Career Guide feature to get insight about the mtvU fellowship program and general advice on internships (no registration required, please feel free to link to this column from external websites).
