Events and Services
DigiPen (Singapore) regularly schedules on-campus visits by some of the industry’s top companies, giving you the opportunity to meet with recruiters, learn more about the hiring process, and even participate in on-campus interviews. These events are open to DigiPen (Singapore) students only.
Every year, graduating DigiPen (Singapore) seniors show off their projects to industry recruiters. Instead of a traditional career fair where the companies have booths, our students set up booths and display their projects, reels, and portfolios to recruiters, hiring managers, and industry experts.
As a DigiPen (Singapore) student, you have the chance to have your resume and cover letters reviewed, practice your interviewing skills, develop soft skills, and receive general career counselling sessions. Students are welcome to meet with a member of the Career & Alumni Services team at any stage of their academic career. Please email Career Services to set up an appointment.
