I’m about to enter the final year of my University course, so pretty soon I’ll have to start looking for a job.
With the combined experience I’ve gained from uni and these amazing courses, I feel pretty confident in my abilities and I’m ready to start building a portfolio of work to evidence these skills. To be specific, I mainly want to demonstrate my coding skills in Java/C#/C++ along with Unity game development (I’ll be searching for a programmer position).
However – I have no clue what to make for it! I’m not really sure what employers are looking for when it comes to assessing portfolios and I don’t want to waste any time producing stuff that is going to be overlooked or which doesn’t adequately demonstrate my abilities.
I’m wondering if anyone here has either built a portfolio themselves or perhaps is involved in recruitment at a games company and can give some insight on what would be good to include? Even if neither of those things apply, I’d really love to hear what suggestions everyone here has to offer!
