Anyone interested in getting a career in videogames, take note - the London Game Career Fair kicks off tomorrow, and over the next two days will be providing both young people and professionals keen on making the move into games with a chance to meet top employers and recruitment experts, and to hear presentations and put questions to speakers from many different parts of the industry.
The event is free, and it's open to anyone with an interest in working in games - it should be especially relevant to students, school leavers, and professionals from other industries who are thinking of making the leap over into the games industry, and either want to meet with employers to hand over CVs in person, or simply want to find out what kind of university courses or professional training they should be looking for.
The event, which is backed by GamesIndustry.biz and Gamasutra, takes place in the Cafe Royal on Regent Street, right next to Piccadilly Circus - just down the road from other London Games Week events such GDC London. It's open from 11am through to 7pm on both Tuesday and Wednesday, and many of the topics of the sessions and presentations are repeated on both days (all the exhibitors will be there on both days, too) to make it as convenient as possible for attendees.
Although pre-registration for the event is closed, registrations will be available on the door, and it's still absolutely free to get in. For more information, including the exhibitor list visit the London Game Career Fair website

I went to that games fair and it was pretty cool. I ended up missing the Cafe completely and going right to the other end of Regent street - but I got there eventually.
It was pretty decent. A dude from Rare was there - I wish I'd had the balls to ask "So where you working at Rare before or after it turned crap?" *lol*
