Last week we had an orientation at our university about our incoming internship next semester, the orientation was overwhelming and we feel so unprepared for these upcoming months and all the stuff we have to submit for said internship, we're going to have a mock job interview this week. Everything seems to happen so fast, we're not even done with our thesis.
Anyway, I'm planning to find internship programs in any game dev companies in the Philippines. My top 3 companies are Anino PlayLab, Secret 6 Inc. and Ubisoft Philippines.
I chose Anino as my first because I heard good things from them, specially with an alumni who had their internship there. I could apply as a 2D artist there... plus last time I heard, they encourage employees to play TF2 because they do company lan games sometimes.
Second is Secret 6 which was recommended by witch-girl-pilar, she works there as a 2D artist, she said the studio could use a 3D artist like me, plus the social environment is great.
Last is Ubisoft Philippines... I'm not much of a fan of Ubisoft nor its games but my professor in 3D class recommends them. I do still look forward to work there.
Now I'm still not sure if I should apply as a 2D or 3D artist in the first two companies, maybe both? If it's possible, I could be a 3D artist as my main and 2D on the side or vice versa. I'm more confident as a 2D Artist tho.
In the long run I want to work at a company that works on stylistic games.
