Work Experience in QLD

Hey, I need some work experience. I have contacted Krome they told me to come here, so yeah I was just wondering is there any work experience around =D?

Btw I am grade 10 :)

From my seven years of running Sumea / tsumea, I've only heard of one studio who is/was willing to take up students for work experience (Wicked Witch in Melbourne), so you might have a rather tough job of finding one.

Unfortunately, the reasons for the local games industry for not taking in work experience students are many, but I do encourage you to try anyway. Go to our industry section, contact those companies in the Brisbane listing, and see how you go. If you do find a place, let us all here know for others who might be interested later on!

We've had a few threads on here about work experience, if you're interested, read up on them at:

Are you in Brisbane?

Try Halfbrick Studios... while I worked there they took on a number of people in your position.

They're a great place to work too.

Check out their website and shoot an email through to Shainiel.

Best of luck!

Scott.
