re: Have You Been "Ghosted" By An Employer? VIEW POST


I was ghosted by a popular game developer/publisher, for a game design position. They have an initial round of applicants, which is basically just everyone who applied. They get a second round of applicants just from evaluating resumes/portfolios, which I was accepted to.

Then, they had everyone in that group fill out a questionnaire that had a few game design-related questions. The last of these questions was basically a "design an in-game item for this situation with these requirements".

I filled that out and submitted it, and then they completely stopped responding, including the HR person who originally sent me the questionnaire. Then, about a year later, I noticed a new item in-game conspicuously similar to the one I designed, lol.
