Gamasutra has announced its first Nintendo DSi prizewinner - Sean Dazet of Los Angeles, CA - as it continues awarding readers who upload their resume/CV into the site's market-leading game resume database.
The leading site on the art and business of games already has hundreds of advertised jobs
in programming, art, design, production and more, from top industry companies.
Sean was one of the thousands of users accessing the job section during the month of May 2010, and was randomly picked to receive a Nintendo DSi as part of the continuing, monthly giveaway.
Searching a database of video game job candidates -- already actively used on Gamasutra by companies like Microsoft, Activision, Sony, Ubisoft, Gazillion, Blizzard, and THQ -- is becoming an equally good way of finding new employees at top studios.
As previously, any Gamasutra jobseeker who logs on to the Job Seeker part of Gamasutra's jobs section
and fills in or updates a resume in the 'My Resume Manager' section will be eligible for a random drawing to be held monthly.
One randomly picked developer who has updated or uploaded their resume in either 'public to searchers' or 'anonymous' formats in the last competition period will win a new Nintendo DSi handheld, thanks to Gamasutra.
By registering for the resume upload service, game creators should significantly increase their chances of being called on by some of the game industry's leading companies.
[COMPETITION NOTES: One entry per person. Prize drawings occur at the end of each calendar month until further notice. All those who uploaded or updated during that month entry period are eligible for a prize. Winner will be contacted privately via email. Monthly prize is one U.S.-purchased Nintendo DSi which will be sent to winner's location, whether inside or outside North America.]
