We are Industry Insiders.

Yes. You should hire us.

A Staffing Alternative

GAME ON! Recruiting was founded in 2007 at the request of several game industry HR Directors to provide a staffing alternative to game developers and publishers. Our focus is not on volume, we don’t “shotgun” resumes and we don’t work with every candidate or client. We provide personalized professional career management to our candidates and focused staffing resources to our clients. Our fees are reasonable and guarantee is the best in the business.

Industry Professionals

GAME ON! has almost 30 years combined Human Resources and Recruiting experience in games, we know the business and we know the people making the hiring decisions. We also know what hiring managers and HR professionals DON’T like about recruiters and we avoid these pitfalls. Changing careers is one of the most important decisions you can make - don’t put it in the hands of someone who has never worked in the industry. At GAME ON! you’re guaranteed to work a with industry insiders who are experts in career development.

Business by Referral

It’s no secret that the best businesses operate on referrals. Let’s face it - anyone can troll the internet or hammer the phones and come up with a few resumes. Because we have worked in the industry, over 80% of our business is referral based. Simply put, we either know our candidates or have been referred to a candidate by someone we know. This results in a higher quality of candidate for our clients and better opportunities for our candidates.
