Networking Strategies

This month PJ Cignarella discusses tips and tricks that have helped him talk to people and network in the industry. This eventually led to getting his first game industry job. PJ will discuss how his acting background helped him develop some simple interactions and approaches. These can help you network, get your name known to others, and maintain contact with industry professionals.

About the speaker:

He graduated from Fitchburg State University in the spring of 2018, majoring in Game Design and minoring in Theater. After working part-time for Terrible Posture Games during his senior year of college he did an internship with them, and now works there full-time.
