Advice to Those Who Want to Work at OnLive

Chris Donahue, Director of Publisher Relations for OnLive Inc. talks to David Smith of Interactive Selection and Game Careers at Gamescom 2011 in Cologne. Prior to OnLive, Chris held executive positions at inXile entertainment, Live Gamer, Microsoft, Nvidia, ATI, The ImagiNation Network (Worldplay) and Sierra Online. As a director, President/CEO, VP of Sales & Marketing, and Senior Director of Product Management, he has led start-ups and grown small to mid-size technology companies as well as worked at several Fortune 500′s. His advice to those who want to work at Onlive: “Specifically for OnLive, we have a website that has a list of openings we are looking for. But in general, customise your resume, make sure you point out the things you think would map directly to the job role. Do some research, find out about the product and the company so when you do have a conversation with someone being up to speed and intelligent about what their product is will really help open doors wider for you. For OnLive specifically, we are a start up company, we are growing and there are lots of openings. If you are entry level then internships are a great way to get in the door. The main thing is you have a short period of time to interest somebody so… be your best, be interesting, be passionate.”
