Red Storm RisingRed Storm Is on the Prowl for New Gaming Talent 

Red Storm Entertainment, one of the larger game development studios in the Triangle, wants a few good men and women for its growing army of developers..  Elizabeth Loverso, director of product development at Ubisoft/Red Storm Entertainment, took the Morrisville-based studio’s search to the recent Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. In an exclusive interview, Loverso discussed Red Storm’s search, the role GDC plays in the studio’s strategy, and the continuing growth of the gaming industry in the Research Triangle area.

However, Loverso wouldn’t discuss Red Storm’s current game project. The company, which was launched by Tom Clancy in 1996, released last November “America’s Army: True Soldiers.” In a Q&A, Loverso, who is a graduate of Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. and has been ranked as one of the most 100 influential women in the gaming industry, did discuss a variety of topics.  Read More…

Chris Pepper from IBM’s NCSU Pathfinder Mentoring Program stopped by to talk about this great opportunity.

  • Provide students some insight into professional life to better prepare themselves while at school
  • Professionals meet with students approx. monthly to discuss career experiences, technical job trends, answer questions, provide insight to engineering profession
  • One semester duration – the student and advisor can continue the relationship longer if they choose to
  • Potential IBM visits and lab tours to give student a view of what goes on at IBM
  • Two-way feedback – hear from student how to improve the program
  • For students in Electrical Engineering , Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Human Factors, Technical Communications, Industrial Design and Graphics Design

Send your completed enrollment form and your resume to Linda Brown at blinda@us.ibm.com or Chris Pepper at rcpepper@us.ibm.com.
