GameTrain, an IT accelerator and incubator working towards enhancing Pakistan’s role in the Global IT/Gaming space, has partnered with Generation Pakistan, a youth employment foundation, and Unity Technologies, an American video game software development company, to bring the first-ever instructor-led Unity Bootcamp.
The Bootcamp inducts candidates displaying the right kind of zeal and the passion to go through 3 months of rigorous training for technical skills, as well as behavioral and mindset skills, to come out as a top-quality Junior Unity Developer to be placed in one of the top gaming studios partnered with GameTrain. Not only this, the complete 3-month training is completely free-of-cost.
Participants of the program will undergo intensive training that will allow them to launch a career in game development and master the tools needed for success in creating and operating interactive, real-time 3D content. This program includes a curriculum that combines technical skills training with mentoring and soft skills to ready the candidates for the careers they’re about to embark on.
The Bootcamp ensures that the candidates are not only placed in the right positions, but are also mentally satisfied with the jobs they land. Unity powers over half of the world’s games, and is used in over 190 countries across the globe. This fully online 12-weeks bootcamp-style program gives the youth an opportunity to launch their career with one of the world’s leading game development companies.
The minds behind GameTrain are five game-changers that share a common goal of chiseling the talent pool in the market.
Masooma Zeeshan, CEO of Game Train partnered with Ali Ihsan, CEO FRAG Games, Raheel Iqbal, CEO Game Storm Studios, Khurram Samad CEO GenITeam, and Saad Hameed CEO Game District, to provide opportunities for students to have a platform where they can get training for upskilling their academic knowledge to land successful careers in top gaming studios like these.
For the past 2 years, the world has been shaken down and has been struggling to adapt to the “new normal” that was invited by the pandemic. The IT industry, however, not only remained unshaken but boomed during this time. But, the IT industry in Pakistan is still at an impasse of producing 80% more IT graduates than those successfully being placed in the industry. The reason for this is the lack of the right set of skills.
GameTrain continually strives to identify, train and place motivated candidates in top companies. Their last Unity Cohort trained 20 fresh graduates, with a 95% of success rate in job placements.
