Happy Sunday, friends! It’s good to be back after our little PAX East trip last weekend. Thank you, again, to those of you who stopped by our panel and asked some truly insightful questions.

With that out of the way! You’re probably here for all the amazing job opportunities that have cropped up, aren’t you? We’ve seen a whole host of them this past week, and it’s super exciting to share those with you now. From highly coveted internships to higher level positions to job search sites specific to the industry, now is the time for you to reach for your dreams. We believe in you!
As always, if you know of an inclusive gaming space or games project you’d love to see promoted on our Sunday Loot series, drop us a comment below or check out our contact list! We’d love to hear from you, especially about new and exciting spaces where all gamers can hang out. ✌
Cards Against Humanity Internships
