My name is Erin Michael Vondrak. I made this video to kill time while waiting to hear back from an application. It was intended to be silly. Here are the details:
- The position I'd applied for had nothing to do with art or game design, but customer support, which I had an extensive background in.
- Had I been making something specifically to showcase my pertinent talents to Valve, it definitely wouldn't have been a silly singsong animation in Flash posted to YouTube. The video didn't need my resume integrated into it - that would have been incredibly boring. Valve already had that information, and reached out to me / interviewed me based on it.
- I went through three stages of interviews based on my resume, and visited one separate time when they invited me in after this video wound up in the news.
The people I spoke and interviewed with at Valve were awesome. I learned a lot through the interview process and in the stimulating conversations I had with the people there. It was a great time, and they were aware that this video was not intended to replace my resume, but instead, to make people laugh.
