We review applications on a rolling basis so we recommend applying sooner when there is a higher chance of the role being available. There are four stages starting with your application, then a craft test, some interviews, and finally a decision.
Complete the online application. Apply for positions that align with your interests and experience. Please do not apply for all roles, just the ones that really speak to you.
Next, be sure to include all requested materials: resume, application question responses, linkedin/personal website, and any other questions related to the specific internship you apply for. Please make sure your resume is up to date as you cannot replace your resume once submitted.
Quick resume tip: Tailoring your resume for the opportunity goes a long way! By understanding the job description and making sure you include your experiences that overlap, you’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd. Feel free to include college coursework and extracurriculars too, if it’s relevant to the job, it’s good to add.
For the application questions, be sure to bring your authentic self. We want to match you with the opportunities that allow you to achieve your goals. Here are some examples:
We want internships at Riot to be totally hands-on. That means interns will be able to work directly with other Rioters to impact our products and teams. For some roles, this requires a solid understanding of the area you are interested in. For example, in engineering and sound design roles, you will have a take-home test to review your skills and foundations. Not every internship opening comes with a craft test but be prepared to test your skills after applying.
While craft skills are important, we are also looking for interns who have strong interpersonal skills like communication, collaboration, and problem solving. Here are the interviews that you will go through:
Preliminary Screening: In this interview you and a recruiter from the team will explore your academic and professional background together to ensure that you are a fit for the position you have applied for.
Craft Interview: This interview tests for the hard skills that are unique to the role you have applied for. For instance, a software engineering intern could be expected to answer questions related to data structures and algorithms.
Behavioral Interview: This interview reviews how you align with our values and the values you carry in your own life.
This one’s pretty self-explanatory. After going through all these steps we will notify candidates who have been selected to join the Riot NA Internship Program in 2023.
Riot Coach Tips:
ERROR?!: Ensure all information submitted is accurate. There will be no way to update your application once it has been submitted. You’ll need to resubmit a brand new application, so it’s definitely worth double-checking before hitting submit.
Review: Have your application reviewed by a trusted peer, advisor, family member, or mentor. Your college career center is another great resource for resume and job application prep.
Be Specific. Be Intentional: Apply for a position that best aligns with your interests and experience.
PDFs: PDFs are your ally! It is recommended that your attached documents be in a format that can be read and downloaded easily.
