Loyal readers, I have an exciting announcement for all of you. This has been in the making for several weeks now but I only was just able to finalize everything this afternoon. I have secured employment with Relic Entertainment. I’ll be starting after the long week at the end of this month.
This new development began many weeks ago when a former co-worker of mine stated on a social media network that Relic was hiring. Through her, I was able to send in my resume. Then a few weeks of waiting occurred. I didn’t mind because I was busy preparing for my trip to Las Vegas. Relic got in touch with me directly while I was in Nevada. After I returned home from my trip, I had a series of very pleasant interviews with them. I’ve interviewed with a lot of gaming companies and very honestly, the people at Relic were extremely nice. A bit more waiting transpired but I received the good news last Friday. This afternoon I delivered the signed offer letter to them in person.
I am looking forward to joining everyone at Relic. They’ve made some highly regarded games, including the highest rated RTS game on PC. This is also my first time joining a studio that has previously done mostly PC games. Most of my career has been spent on console games. It will be interesting to see the differences in the platforms. Last, but certainly not least, I am very enthused to be joining three former co-workers of mine, including the one who informed me of the opening in the first place. I enjoyed working with all three in the past and I look to continue the fun.
As I consider this blog to be more of personal outlet for myself than Facebook or LinkedIn, I won’t be divulging this development on those networks until probably October. Thank you, loyal readers for sticking with this blog. Now, I need to learn how to wake up early again.
