|Overview:||Inspired by her time at Telltale Games as a Creative Development Assistant (as obtuse a title as it sounds), Hannah MacLeod (Marvel's Avengers, Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2) gives junior developers and interns practical advice to turn any entry-level position into the educational opportunity to start a game career off on the right foot. From taking notes in meetings to volunteering for scratch VO (and what that is), "underpromise, over deliver" has never been more prescriptive. Whether the entry-level job is at a large studio, small studio, or remote, Hannah has the practical toolkit to take advantage of the proverbial foot-in-door.|
