Anonymous: hii! i also was going to apply to intern @ riot and i was wondering what you sent them? like a portfolio? with what kind of art? thanks!
I went to their hiring page and looked over the internship page first! It basically says to send them a “note” with what you want to get out of an internship at Riot Games and what sort of skill set you have.
I wrote them a very personal, letter of intent that was about three paragraphs long. I tried to explain myself and my artistic career up until now and where I want to be heading. I also sent my portfolio!
Ultimately my suggestion is to try and speak about your strengths and what you want to do at Riot Games. They said that internships are pretty much made up if your skillset is desired. I was really apprehensive about sending my application in but a lot of Rioters gave me a lot of supportive words and wished me luck. The best advice was that you can’t achieve anything if you don’t try, so best of luck to you if you do send in an application!!
