Champlain College does a great job of giving us opportunities on campus that allow us to make connections and spread our wings a bit. They give knowledge about real life experiences and examples from industry professionals and I’ve always been thankful for that. In the game industry, we’ve been taught connections can make or break your career. Knowing someone, even just connecting with them on a very basic level, helps your opportunities in the long run.
There is- in my opinion- no better feeling than creating a new relationship that can bring you further in life. So when I had the opportunity to go to multiple conventions and events in Montreal, I took it. While Champlain has events for you to meet many of the game industry’s professionals, it’s a different experience entirely meeting them in a more casual setting.
