Valve Details Experimental Pipeline Initiative

Valve has taken the wraps off a new program aimed at young people who want to work in the video games industry called Pipeline. The special initiative is aimed at helping teenaged designers seeking careers in the game industry. The ultimate goal of the Pipeline program is to help answer questions important to getting in the field as well as some commonly asked questions about working at a company such as Valve. Some of those questions that will get answers include "What is it like to work on video games?," "What should I study?," "What colleges are best for preparing me?," and "How do I get a job in video games?"

Valve's Pipeline initiative is an experiment to see if Valve can take a group of high school students with minimal work experience and train them to be successful at a company.

"We want to establish a connection to the world of teenagers that are asking many questions about getting into the gaming industry," Valve said. "We look to answer many of these questions and are willing to reach out to the community and give them the information they need."

More info on Pipeline is expected "within the next month or so." Check out the video to your left for an explanation for some of the teens that are taking part in this little experiment.
