Jabba + Jeebuz's Essential Site list!
« on: February 02, 2008, 06:21:00 PM »
Looking for work? Here is a good list of places online that both Kyle and I have found to be handy when cruising for employers:
This is a recruitment site that advertises jobs for specific clients like Plastic Wax and Team Bondi. The jobs listed are mainly for the games Industry but I have also seen some VFX positions listed from time to time too. So far they have been pretty good to me, and have hooked me up with an interview with Blue-Tongue. Worth a look for junior positions.
Its a good site that offers a decent search of game jobs throughout the world. Main problem is that a recruitment company called Interactive Selection seem to be representing most of the game jobs in Australia and they don't really like dealing with anyone without at least 2 years of industry experience (3 rejections for this reason alone! -Jeebuz)
Digital Labourers Federation. The thanks on this one go out to ORMO who introduced me to one awesome mailing list. The DLF sends out job notifications, useful links, interesting discussions,  and other things to fill up your inbox. I would suggest having a Gmail account to sign up with, as its only through the Gmail conversation archiving that I have managed to keep track of everything that comes through. On the good side, the job notifications are frequent and give a good idea of what is available out there. Most of it is for the Sydney region, but I have seen some Melbourne things come through, and one of two for SA.
Kyle pointed out this site- its a directory of jobs, news, games in development and events regarding Australian and New Zealand games developers. Features a sign up option where you can be notified of things that you want to know about. A good jumping off point to familiarize yourself with who the developers are 9out there and what they are looking for in a junior graduate.

If anybody has any more good sites to take a look at feel free to add them to the list!
Just because you can, it doesn't mean you should.

Unless its cool.

Procrastination is the Crown of Purgatory. The bearer of such a burden is a defeated one indeed.

Hi All,

Here is an awesome site I came across one day...It is a worldwide community of vfx artists, kind of like a "facebook" for people who want to go hardcore into the wonderful world of VFX and get out there and get jobs, both freelance and FT. It also posts every few days or so an update on jobs available worldwide and featured artist, It emails you once a week a list of jobs as well!...It's great!

Catch guys,
