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, DigiPen (Singapore)’s graduating students show off their projects to industry recruiters. Instead of a traditional career fair where the companies have booths, graduating 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 access to resume reviews, mock interviews, and 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.
