    “As a Senior Recruiter in both the VFX and Game industries, when it comes to students, I’m always surprised that they rely on their talent and accomplishments in art and technology to carry them through the interview process. Students need to consider the interview as interactive, which means they need to research the proper questions to ask. This helps us to determine their professional maturity and their ability to work on production teams with challenging deadlines.
