Gaming and esports-focused jobs platform Hitmarker has signed a partnership with the Black Collegiate Gaming Association (BCGA) to assist students of historically black colleges and universities “pursue careers in esports and video games.”
The agreement, described as a “wide-ranging international partnership,” was helped along by the North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF). Of note is that this partnership follows Hitmarker’s five other existing partnerships that give access to the company’s API feed of selected Hitmarker job opportunities on its website, with no fees attached.
Additionally, Hitmarker will provide the BCGA with “bespoke educational content around esports and video game industry careers, as well as facilitating introductions to other non-profit industry bodies in its immediate network.” This will serve students from each of the 16 member schools who will also receive “detailed resume and cover letter reviews from Hitmarker, one-to-one assistance with interview preparation when required, and social media spotlight content across all of Hitmarker’s social media accounts.”
Hitmarker started in 2018 and has become the de facto home for those seeking jobs in the esports and video gaming space and recently raised $703K USD (£521,283) in a crowdfunding round in November.
