Hey Eludeasaurus,

I've actually been pretty busy as of late. Not too many opportunities to interact with everyone [but I'm working on it!]

I'll definitely make an effort to hop on over the next few weeks

Thanks for not forgetting about me

I'm applying for the internship this summer (: I have a pretty sweet resume but I just love games I always have especially mmo type games, anything with teamwork really!

Not sure what I want to do, maybe player relations specialist or something? but I just wanted to pop in and say hi, I know there's already a RiotPenguin I've seen him around, so we'll have to play best out of 1000 in rock paper scissors to see who keeps it.

I have always wanted to to work for a gaming company and with how much I love league and want to make it all it can be I figured I would try and apply. However I don't want to apply only to have myself overlooked because I miss a requirement.
Hey Coldmanj,

The job description outlines as clearly as possible the ideal candidate for the particular position. This does not mean that it's non-negotiable. However, do understand that many of the core competencies are listed as they are absolutely necessary in order for you to do the job.

Getting your foot in the door has more to do with what you are able to bring to the table. By this I mean, what sets you apart from everyone else? What have you done which shows that you are passionate about what you do?

Hey MysteltainSensei,

Don't quote me on this, but I believe you have to be going back to school in order to qualify for an internship. Here's the link to our internship page again. Hopefully you'll be able to find some more definitive information there.

Just curious because I've been looking for potential jobs and nothing seems to match with my skillset
Hey DoctorDark,

I posted this question a few posts back, but: "What do YOU want to do at Riot"?

We have positions ranging from legal assistant, event coordinator, project management, etc. The list truly goes on and on.

I suggest you identify what you are most interested in doing and passionate about before committing yourself to any particular company/industry.

I see a lot of descriptions regarding computer programming and art design. What about positions involving computer networks, help desk, and other CS/IT-related fields?

Thanks Chezai.
You will probably be seeing a resume and cover letter from me soon ^^

What position would a person qualify with the above abilities?
Hey Rastamon Ganja,

That's a pretty specific skill set you have.

Same question as in my other posts: "What do YOU want to do at Riot"? Heck, what do you want to do in general?

I'm not 100% familiar with all the available and relevant positions so you'd have to do that research yourself. If you're set on working in the gaming industry [and more specifically Riot], you might want to start by looking at roles within Art and Graphic Design.

I can't guarantee you that we'd ever be able to play a game. I'm online at weird times and rather sporadically at that. But you're welcome to add me

Hey LoZfan03,

Unfortunately, I am unable to disclose that information.
