Career Fair

The DigiPen Career Fair is our largest recruiting event of the year and hosts over 100 nationwide industry employers on campus. Unlike traditional job fairs where employers sit and wait to be approached by prospective employees, this event provides an opportunity for graduating DigiPen students to display their projects, portfolios, and reels directly to recruiters. Many of our alumni have landed their first industry jobs through connection they made at this event.

Company Days

Company Days are speaking engagements held each Friday at DigiPen's campus where we invite one company to give an informational presentation to a group of DigiPen juniors, seniors, and master's students. Participating companies can send a programmer, artist, designer, producer, HR representative, university relations representative, or a group of employees (the more diverse, the better!) to talk about their work and their companies.

Presentations can include an informational/historic rundown of the company, the role of each presenter at the company, a trailer or demo of the company's product(s), information about how the company hires interns and entry-level employees, and compelling reasons why students would want to work there. Presentation styles vary from company to company.

If you are interested in a Company Day time slot, contact Joanne Ho, Coordinator of Career and Alumni Development, at joanne[dot]ho[at]digipen[dot]edu.

Student Hiring Timelines

Due to our semester-based schedule, current students seeking internships usually look for position start dates at the beginning of September, the beginning of January, or the beginning of May. 

Graduating students are usually eligible for full-time employment the first week in May, with smaller batches of students graduating in December and July. These students often start looking for full-time work several months before graduating, both at on-campus recruiting events and through industry conferences like GDC.
