2016 SUMMER INTERNSHIPS

ANNOUNCING THE HIGHLY COVETED SUMMER INTERNSHIPS AT GRAPHITE LAB!

Graphite Lab is reviewing candidates for summer 2016 internships! The program runs from May 16 – August 12th. General hours on site are from 10AM – 4PM Monday through Friday, but will be negotiated around school or other work schedules for the right candidates.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS APRIL 28th.

We’re offering 2 ART internships, 1 PROGRAMMING internship and 1 GAME DESIGN internship!

Because of the nature of what we do, there is a ton of education that goes into each GLI intern. We teach each intern about principles of game development from the pitch process, though concept development, production, and release. As such GLI internships are unpaid. However, selected candidates will be coached by our team using real game project scenarios for variety of clients both large and small. In some cases, interns will contribute to our original property – Hive Jump which will release later this year.

For a glimpse of what it’s like as an intern here, you can take a look at the video below which was commissioned by Maryville University and features some testimonials from some of our intern alumni.

    Hey Graphite Labs,
    I got to play your game, Hive Jump, at Wizard World a few weeks back and I loved it. I would love an opportunity to work with your studio and learn what you guys have to share. My situation is probably a bit different than most. I work full time (7:30- 4:30) all ready as a Systems Administrator for Harris Corp but I have been trying to get switched over to Game Development for a few years now. I got my bachelor’s degree in Game Software Development from Westwood College last year. I interned with Shadowfall Studio for a little less than a year before I moved back out here to STL. Since then I have been looking for another studio to join. I have my own side projects but I miss working with a team. I understand i probably am not the demographic you would normally consider for an internship but I would love to have a chance to work with another studio.

    V/R,
    Michael Dykes

    ps. I have a full version of my game, Alien Invaders, that I can send you if you would like to check it out. The Unity player I used on my portfolio is sadly no longer supported.
