Atul’s Answer

I am assuming you are still in the high school and looking for summer internship.
Make a list of companies which are developing software games. Review their website and know the requirements/prerequisites before applying.
Since it is a summer internships you should not limit yourself to the area where you live. Many employers will offer assistance or give allowance.
Use LinkedIn to see who is hiring.

Lakshman "Laks"’s Answer

- Linked In, Glass Door advertise open job requisitions, so, you want to start searching for the open jobs first. Get connected with the relevant recruiters on LinkedIn in your space.

- Searching on the company websites for open job requisitions will also help.

- If you find the right job that interests you, you can post the resume on their Career website too.

Shannon’s Answer

Hi Michael - great question! Searching for jobs can always be overwhelming, especially when the options seem endless.

When I was looking for my first job/internship, a mentor recommended that I make a list of the companies that I wanted to work at and type into Google, "companies like X" to introduce me to companies that I had not heard of but were similar to the ones I knew and wanted to work at. This really helped me increase the number of jobs that I found and applied to. From there, I suggest that you check if the company has any open roles that you are interested in. If not, try reaching out to someone on the HR team (via LinkedIn or through the hiring page on the company's website) to schedule an informational 15 minute phone call to learn more about the company and their hiring process. Also, I recommend that you tell your family, friends and teachers that you're looking for a job in game design. They might know someone working in that field that they can connect you with, or can be on the look out for job opportunities that might be a good fit you.

Lastly, through Google or LinkedIn, find people who work in jobs that you are interested in and reach out to learn more about what they do. While these conversations might not lead to a job right away, they are a great way to learn more about the game design industry and to expand your network.

I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck. You are going to do great! :)
-Shannon
