Overview: Internships in the games industry are becoming increasingly common, but there are misunderstandings on both sides of the table about what they should involve, what to expect from intern candidates, and what they should lead to. There are several points of contention that lead companies not to hire interns, and prevent students from being hired as interns. This talk explores these problems from the perspective of both students and the industry, and looks at what it means to be an intern. It will give perspective and advice to interns applying for internships and developers offering them, drawing on the speaker's experience on both sides of the table.
