An internship with Behaviour is a chance to make friends and establish relationships with others who, like yourself, are aspiring to a career in video games.

“I really adored my internship experience at Behaviour! It’s really THE internship that convinced me to pursue a career in video games. I loved being able to work with different departments, from designers to artists. The team was like a family and very collaborative, everyone was always ready to help, which remains the case today. I learned so much from my internship, on both the technical and game production sides. I was so proud to see my name in the credits and the features that I had worked on in the final game.”
