Executive Director Blog: Helping Those Impacted by Layoffs

13 Feb 2019

The Activision/Blizzard layoffs that happened yesterday impacted great people, and we want to help everyone find a new opportunity in game development as quickly as possible. Our Chapters in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, and Seattle are working on events and resources for their local communities, and IGDA HQ is also helping companies looking to hire in those communities with a special offer for posts in the IGDA Career Center.

The IGDA is offering companies with at least 10 open positions in an area with people impacted by the layoffs the following special benefits to help fill their positions as quickly as possible:

  • Up to 20 free Basic Postings (US$299 value each) in the IGDA Career Center
  • Up to 20 resume purchases (US$35 value each) in the IGDA Career Center

IGDA Studio Affiliates already receive complimentary Enhanced Postings in the Career Center as part of their IGDA membership; in recognition of their support, we’re happy to provide our Studio Affiliates with the following additional benefits regardless of their location:

  • Up to 20 free additional Enhanced Postings (US$399 value each) in the IGDA Career Center
  • Up to 40 resume purchases (US$35 value each) in the IGDA Career Center

To take advantage of this opportunity, a studio should email membership@igda.org with a link to their job openings; IGDA will provide codes for the postings and resumes that the studio can use at their convenience.

Please share this opportunity with your local studios and community.
