For The Love of Esports
Working in social media wasn’t the first choice for many of these interns. For digital natives, social media is like a second language; so combining that baseline knowledge with a passion for esports seems like a no-brainer.
“I’ve always been a gamer my entire life,” said Eric Aaberg, former Social Media Coordinator Intern at Envy Gaming.
“I did a lot of Minecraft community management in high school and then when I came to my university [The University of Texas at Dallas] they were like ‘Hey, we’re adding an esports program and department’… I did everything I could to try and get a job there.”
After first trying out for UTD’s Esports Program as a competitive player, then as an analyst, and finally as an assistant coach – Aaberg eventually found his home as a part of the creative division. Now, he has overseen a large growth in the program, of which he is currently their Student Director. With his experience, Aaberg was hired as a TikTok Specialist for Complexity Gaming on September 25.
