1) Can you tell us more about your experience as part of the Ubisoft GP?
I joined the Ubisoft Graduate Program in 2022 after being introduced to it during a campus sharing by Ubisoft Singapore. What piqued my interest in the program was the variety of personal development assistance which Ubisoft provides: mentorship, industry sharing sessions, and opportunities to work on key projects, both locally and abroad. A few months after I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Game Design from DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore in December 2021, I applied for the graduate program for the Project Management track and was eventually accepted to the program. Since entering the program, I participated in workshops, monthly sharing sessions, and more recently, found a personal mentor to guide me in my professional development.
2) What makes the Ubisoft GP different from a regular first job?
What I find unique about the Graduate Program is the ability to set aside time during the day to take a deep dive into the many facets of game development; a chance to improve my understanding on various topics while delivering on my responsibilities as a full-time employee – indeed a rare opportunity which many industries do not offer. Through these initiatives, I have grown to be even more aware of the current trends in game development and have gained a wider appreciation of the modern game industry. The Ubisoft Graduate Program offers an opportunity for driven individuals to explore a path beyond the conventional, and provides abundant resources and support for them to excel beyond expectations.
3) Which achievement are you the proudest since you started the Ubisoft GP?
Since joining the Ubisoft Graduate Program, I have been given greater responsibility and autonomy (along with even greater expectations!) in my role to lead the UIUX team on Skull and Bones™.
4) What’s it like to work at Ubisoft?
Ubisoft values both autonomy and collaboration. It gives plentiful opportunities for those who know what they want to achieve and are not afraid to take them. At work, seniority is not an indicator which determines whether an idea is heard – but is instead a wealth of experience. Surrounded by colleagues who are extremely passionate in their work, Ubisoft is a melting pot of cultures, ideas, and pure ardour which motivates me to continue growing daily. Ubisoft also takes play seriously, so there are lots of activities to unwind and relax!
