If you are looking for information about getting into the game industry: the best resource I know is the “breaking in” section of the International Game Developers Association website. And join your local chapter of the IGDA.
If you live in the NYC area: My best advice is to join the NYU Game Center mailing list and the IGDA NYC Facebook Group - they put out an amazing monthly newsletter! There are many other great NYC-based game-related organizations like Babycastles, Come Out and Play, Games for Change, The Sheep's Meow, Eyebeam and the Playcrafting Meetup group.
