Kombo: For any gamer or games journalist, there's no higher privilege to fulfilling your college internship requirements than with a premiere video game publisher. For me, that fantasy came true one cold morning last December, through a confirmation email.
I'd been chosen to intern for my entire spring semester with MTV Games, publisher of the ever popular Rock Band franchise. I'd interviewed twice over the course of a week's time; once with an MTV Human Resources person, then with my potential supervisor. I felt confident in both interviews, as my previous knowledge of the games industry set me apart from other potential candidates. Providing links to articles, as well as a small marketing background, sealed the deal to what would be a grueling, yet once in a lifetime experience in the months ahead.
