GamePro osallistujan kokemus: Magali-Claire Boehrer

Personally, I had nothing but great experiences with GamePro. Even when the subject matter was not directly related to my field, I learned so many valuable things. The best part was getting to know the people, my peers, who now are on their way to become industry veterans themselves.

I recommend the program to anyone who has a passion for creating video games, or highly skilled individuals (in art, programming, marketing…) who want a new challenge. The gaming industry is not only fun but extremely supportive, so creative minds will flourish.

My background is in Art and Design, and I used my skills from beginning to end, improving a lot during this journey. The program got me my first job in the Finnish gaming industry, the courses on design and game ideas were very useful and I still use some elements in my current job today (ie, keeping a certain familiarity to elements, not go full out weird, being able to communicate with the programmers and designers efficiently).

Applicants shouldn’t be intimidated by the program, the application form might seem daunting but most of what counts is the portfolio and interview. Take advantage of the classes, get to know your teachers and make as many genuine connections with people as possible.

GamePro osallistujan kokemus: HARALDUR JONSSON

GamePro program is great for those trying to get in to the game industry but need a little push or additional training. The training covers just about every aspect of game development on a high level, and is curated by industry veterans and experienced game developers.

My background was a 3D multimedia education, some freelancing in mobile game development and that definitely helped me during the program and still does today.

Through the program I got a job which I love. I learn new things every day and get to hone my skills as a developer.

I think an applicant of GamePro should be expected to be agile and learn fast, be ready for new things and to step out of their comfort zone, they can expect getting to know a versatile crowd of people and having a great time!

GamePro is a recruitment training program organized by Saranen Consulting in collaboration with Neogames and Google. The program has been held eight times before with excellent results. Through the previous programs 190 people have already found their dream jobs in the games industry!

The aim of the GamePro program is to find new talents for the Finnish game industry.

THE GAMES INDUSTRY NEEDS YOU!

The Finnish games industry has seen a long period of growth and there is no end in sight. The industry faces a constant lack of professionals and e.g. Neogames has estimated that there is a yearly lack of about 280 professionals.

The Finnish games industry is among the biggest in Europe with around 3000 workers and a yearly turnover of around 2,5 billion euros with 95 percent of the turnover coming from abroad. It is a truly international industry and it has been the quickest growing branch of entertainment business with a steady growth even in more trying times.

GamePro is an industry-wide collaboration of the Finnish games industry. Again, a group of impressive gaming companies are looking for new talents.

You can find an up-to-date listing of recruiting companies and roles on this site.

UPGRADE AND MATCH YOUR GAME DEVELOPMENT SKILLS TO INDUSTRY NEEDS

GamePro aims to give you a chance to enter the Finnish games industry through training and on-the-job learning. The duration of the program is six months and includes 20 training days held by industry veterans. The main goal of the program is an employment contract in the Finnish game industry at the end of the program.

Training days include e.g. the following topics:

  • Game programming
  • Designing games
  • Game engines
  • Game mechanics and artificial intelligence
  • Game graphics
  • Game economy
  • User acquisition
  • Games marketing
  • Collecting and analyzing data

What are the requirements? Can I apply?

Different tasks and companies have very different requirements. Game programming requires you to have background in programming and game art requires you to have talents in graphics. Other roles differ quite a lot and e.g. Growth Hacker related roles usually require either marketing or analytics skills. Own game projects are a big plus. If you have a portfolio of your work available, please include a link in your application.

You can apply to this recruitment program if you are currently unemployed, facing the prospect of unemployment or on a temporary employment contract and your job search is active at TE Services (Labor Exchange).

Training contract

A training contract is signed for the period of the program. During the program, you will work in the company in real game projects and the normal company policies apply to you as well. During the program, you are entitled to a normal unemployment benefit as well as a tax-free maintenance benefit.
