Ubisoft will kick off a graduate program later this year to give recent college graduates who are interested in video game programming and project management the opportunity to gain industry experience.
The program, which will begin in September, will offer 25 graduates from around the world the opportunity to work with Ubisoft development and business teams in France, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Romania, the U.K., Canada and the U.S. The first year of the two-year program will place the graduate at a local studio. The following year will be spent at a studio abroad, for which the graduate will be compensated for their housing and relocation costs. At the end of the second year, graduates will begin a long-term assignment at a local studio.
Participants will get paid a salary that "will be adapted to each local market." The goal of the program is to offer four years of experience over a two year period.
The application deadline is March 15. Graduates will be selected by April 30. For more details on the program, visit the Ubisoft Blog.
