How to Get Hired
We asked Activision Blizzard, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Activision Blizzard’s success is due entirely to the efforts of our extremely talented employees around the globe, and we are about to embark on more exciting ventures over the next several years. Are you ready to do the best work of your career? We welcome the most driven, inspired and talented people, who demonstrate commitment to excellence in their work.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We believe the employee of the future is an evolving profile of talent, skill, and dedication. Consider attending one of our sponsored events to engage and discuss potential opportunities with one of our recruiters. We also encourage prospective employees to do ‘non-traditional’ things to get noticed. Prospective employees should reach out proactively to recruiters, current employees and members of the industry, as well as showcase their passions by becoming active members of our communities—from organizing meet ups and hosting esports tournaments to publishing articles about related interests.

We are always looking for smart, driven and creative people. The interactive entertainment industry is constantly evolving, so we must be forward-thinking to ensure we have the right skills to evaluate, adapt and approach new technologies. As we expand our digital and mobile offerings, we are looking for candidates who will help get us to the next level including those with backgrounds in esports, advertising, software engineering, business intelligence, art, mobile, and a wide range of disciplines. Mastering new technologies and artistic skills will always be in demand, and we want to work with people who never stop learning and challenging themselves.
