Zelda creator doesn’t have the qualifications required to work at Nintendo today
Veteran developer discusses Nintendo’s recruitment, need for high qualifications
Shigeru Miyamoto believes that Nintendo would not employ him today if he applied for a position with his original qualifications.
Speaking to Edge magazine, Miyamoto said: “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’.”
Miyamoto assured the industry that he still looks out for those with qualities that aren’t reflected by official qualifications, even getting involved in the interview process himself.
“I might pick up on [applicants] and try to find out something really different within them which you can’t judge just by a college degree,” he said. “That’s one of the special little jobs I set myself.”
