Nintendo: Shigeru Miyamoto Says “I Wouldn’t Get A Job At Nintendo Now Days”

Shigeru Miyamoto has confessed to Edge Magazine that he doesn’t believes in this day and age that he would get accepted at Nintendo with his current academic qualifications.

“Nintendo has become one of those companies that graduates from colleges and good universities really want to work for.”

“Because of that, the competition’s really become so fierce for positions. And that means that a lot of the recent recruits for Nintendo have tended to have the higher degree from the prestigious colleges and universities and whatnot.

“I often say to Mr Iwata: ‘If I was applying for a job here today, I, with my actual college degree, would probably not have been employed by Nintendo!'”

    1. Shiggy doesnt make games anymore, IDK if you knew that, this is an actual fact. What Im not sure of is when he stopped, around mid-90s probably

  1. Sometimes companies can get too obsessed with qualifications and forget about talent and skill, personally I think potenial applicants should make a game demo to apply.
    Miyamoto only got successful after he made Donkey Kong from scratch with limited resources (while supposed to be fixing a different game). Qualifications can’t match that!

  2. OMFG. He CREATED NINTEDO!!!!!!!!!!!! NINTENDO WOULD BE NOTHING WITHOUT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DONT GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Well, i’d hire people with hands-on experience in homebrew game development before I hire someone with just an education certificate. If you have both that’s fine, too. But a certificate shouldn’t be the ONLY determining factor who gets the job.
