  • How Gaming Industry Talent Can Fill In-Demand IT Roles

Gaming Talent

As Antonio Gonzalez, Director of IT Recruiting at Orion Talent, points out in his recent InformationWeek article, gamification has found its way into non-gaming industries, such as customer experience, employee engagement, and product development. This means game skillsets like 3D modeling and motion tracking are necessary, leaving some IT leaders in unfamiliar territory. In Don't Overlook Gaming Industry Talent to Fill In-Demand IT Roles, Antonio, reveals the benefits of embracing these skilled engineers, developers, designers, and 3D artists.

Gamification Cheat Sheet

Antonio advises that even though gaming resumes often include unfamiliar language, IT hiring managers should become familiar with certain skill sets that should signal top talent such as 3D Studio Max, Unity, Unreal Engine, Motion Builder, Qt, 3D Maya, Jira, and Bugzilla. Additionally, he offers a cheat sheet for what type of experience employers in Manufacturing, Education, Telecommunications, Healthcare, and Retail should look for, in order to leverage gaming talent.

Engaging Gaming Talent

Finding and engaging gaming talent may require a new approach. Antonio suggests seeking out new college game development program graduates and looking for reels and resumes posted online.
