    I would kill for a job at TTG... But I live to far away and can't move... (Any at-home jobs? [Like being a mod...]) I WORK FOR FREE! (If I like you.)

    Perhaps... I just awoke from my hibernation...

    You should probably change your signature, Tom.

    What's a springernate?
  • edited May 2010
    Hibernating in the spring.
  • edited May 2010
    "Hiber" in "hibernating" means winter.
    I guess I should have said "Spring-nating".

    Is there a "Summer-nating"?
  • edited May 2010
    I guess farniente and siesta come close in concept, but don't last as long.

    Yes. It's called estivation.

    Hey, that makes sense, estival means summery.

    God I'd love to work for TTG. However, I am a Turkish citizen currently studying in Media Arts and Animation with a focus of 3D environments, in Philadelphia. I am graduating in September and my Optional Practical Training that comes with my student visa, allows me to work in USA for a year after I graduate. But since I am going to be a newly grad with no experience, I was wondering if Telltale Games has a student internship program of any sort?

    Oh and is Telltale Games going to be at Siggraph this year?? Because I'd love to meet up.
  • edited June 2010
    Monkey, I'd suggest sending in a resume to jobs@telltalegames.com since the recruitment folks don't read this thread that often. The intern positions they currently have open don't seem to match your training, but it's worth a shot, right?
  • edited June 2010
    oh thanks Lena.

    TomPravetz + Job@TelltaleGames = SUPER HAPPY AWESOMENESS!
  • edited June 2010
    Will the available intern positions present the possibility of permanent employment with Telltale?

    It has happened in the past, but I don't actually know the details of the specific positions. I would assume that it is certainly possible.
  • edited June 2010
    Once we send in an application how long should we expect to wait to get a reply?

    I'm a college student in concord who'd is very interested in a position as a game tester.
  • edited June 2010
    I WANT WANT WANT to work for Telltale. I'm an excellent artist, and I could also be a designer:), but I'm fifteen and I live in Connecticut:(. Can I still apply?:confused:
  • edited June 2010
    Considering that it is technically illegal to hire anyone under the age of 16 by California law, I'd say no.
  • edited June 2010
    I recently discovered a knack for discerning shades of brown and red to a very high level of accuracy. For instance, this guy's face: :mad: is closer to Sinopia than it is Sienna. If Telltale are looking for that skill then, well, who am I to deny them?

    Just, uh... give me a call. You know my number.

    Edit: If you don't know my number, then good day.

    I would e-mail them again if it takes more than three days. Persistence is key.

    I was informed that E3 was getting in the way of responding to job applications and that I should expect to wait until after. I'll wait till Friday then send another if I don't get a response by then.

    Yeah, I wouldn't say wait until after necessarily, but I would expect things to be a bit slower until a couple of days after E3.
  • edited June 2010
    Ok. Thanks Will

    I wish I lived in California! And not just because Portland's weather is terrible (particularly this ridiculously stupid "summer" we're having up here). I'm a 4.0 student in Web Design courses and have extensive use with Photoshop, Flash, and Dreamweaver. I'd love to apply for some of those internships you guys have open.

    I guess my goal after finishing my final few courses will be to get out of Portland and go somewhere sunnier and with more job opportunities.

    Why don't you send in a CV anyway? You're going to need a job after you graduate, aren't you?

    Hire me! I could make the tea. ;)

    Yes, they say "resume" in the US. And for those who don't know, CV is "Curriculum Vitae", and it's also used in French, incidentally.

    Also, if you can't control your impulses against Will, I'm going to control them for you. Make of that what you will >.>

    Yeah, that was my point. In America we say resume (why we use the French word is beyond me). I was just teasing her for being so international.

    Ginny dislikes the use of "America" to mean "United States", as she feels it's brushing off the rest of America (as in, for instance, South America, where she lives).

    Also, résumé means summary in French, and I don't find it weirder that we'd* use that rather than filet mignon or papier mâché or déjà-vu, so I've stopped trying to understand :p

    *EDIT: I guess I should have said "you"? Oh, who am I kidding, English is one of my languages too.
  • WillWill Banned
    edited June 2010
    I find it weirder because for filet mignon, etc, most of the English speaking countries and many of the non-English ones use the French term. CV on the other hand is used everywhere but the US and Canada practically.
  • edited June 2010
    Maybe they thought French was still better than Latin? :p
    Nah, I say that, but English uses Latin much, MUCH more often than French does.
    Great, now I'm super curious. I'm going to try and see if I can find the etymology.

    EDIT:
    Wikipedia wrote:
    In the United States and Canada, a CV is used specifically in academic circles and medical careers and is far more comprehensive; the term résumé is used for most recruitment campaigns.
    resume (n.)
    1804, "a summary," from Fr. résumé, noun use of pp. of M.Fr. resumer "to sum up," from L. resumere (see resume (v.)). Meaning "biographical summary of a person's career" is 1940s.

    I'm not sure how much I learn from that, but I find it interesting that it said resumes "used to be no longer than two pages long" in the Wikipedia page. From making mine and remaking it often back in France (-_-') I know that over there one of the main guidelines is that everything needs to fit on a single (printed) page.
    Although you're also required to join a (handwritten) single page letter explaining why you want this specific job and what you'll bring to the company.

    I would like to point out that being international is hardly a bad thing. Also, you should hand me the rice and tea before Will spots them, I know where to hide them so nobody will ever find them.
