Gaming Update members in the San Francisco bay area will want to take notice -- especially if you have any interest in starting a career in the video games industry, from coding to testing to product quality assurance -- as this bit of gaming news will be spot-on your interests!
At a time when the games industry is doing very well it is no surprise that companies like Activision, Big Fish Games, Microsoft, Sony, and Machine Zone along with over 40 other tech employers have announced that they are recruiting top talent from across the bay area at the upcoming Bay Area Tech Career Expo and Dev Jam on June 28-29.
Held concurrently with the sold-out Google Developer Conference at the Moscone Center, the event combines dozens of tech companies with sought-after talent in a hub of activity and innovation all its own, encompassing industry talks, roundtables discussions, and workshops for developers and tech professionals with a range of sessions including the launch of the Dolphin Browser and App showcase.
Part of the focus at the public event includes meetups held by Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs and Startups, as well as the Silicon Valley Android Developers and Silicon Valley Cloud Computing Groups.
"There's such tremendous ingenuity in and around San Francisco," says Tech Career Expo Founder and CEO Christopher Sherman, "With the abundance of activity we're creating, we're calling on all qualified tech professionals and companies seeking talent to come on down and experience something truly special. Unlike traditional job fairs, this is a can't-miss, come-as-you-are affair, even if you're not in the market for a job."
Girls in Tech will also present a panel discussion on landing the perfect job, and as an official Google I/O Extended site, the Tech Career Expo and Dev Jam is also livestreaming Google I/O key sessions and inviting talented developers who didn't score tickets to Google I/O to connect with each other throughout the day.
The Tech Career Expo and Dev Jam runs from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Thursday, June 28th and 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Friday, June 29th. Jobseekers can visit the optional pre-registration page at techcareerexpo.com/talent, or just stop by the Moscone Center. So hey, what are you waiting for? Check this out!
