To kick off the OGPC season, TechStart will host a state-wide Game Jam! A Game Jam is a one-day event that will provide high-school and middle-school students an opportunity to create a design document and paper prototype of a game based on the team’s chosen theme. Working with industry mentors, students will learn the basics of team communication, translation of abstract ideas into concrete plans, rapid paper-prototyping of their designs, pitching their projects, and professional networking.
Placement and duration: Summer Analysts (10–14 weeks) and Co-ops (4 months) are recruited and placed into a specific development, infrastructure or business analyst team. These programs are designed to offer a real world, project-based experience of what it’s like to be a technologist for a top financial Firm.
