Ever had a chance to get a GREAT job, go through the interview, and never get a call back? What could POSSIBLY have gone wrong? Well, here are some possibilities!
Jesse Harlin, composer at Dunderpate Music, has done many interviews in his time as a composer, including interviewing me for my job at LucasArts. I also saw him interview people for lots of audio jobs at LucasArts while I worked there and it still existed.
Jesse recently gave a talk at the 2014 GDC called “Why You Didn’t Get The Gig” providing insights to anyone trying to get through the interview process successfully. Some of these things seem so obvious, and yet I’ve also seen these happen and some that went EVEN WORSE.
I hope you learned a thing or two from other people’s mistakes!
