The video game testing industry has now become a 50 billion dollar industry where countless job opportunities with great rewards await video game enthusiasts. This industry enables bums and couch potatoes to have a career and enjoy their careers at the same time, right in their comfort zones! Becoming a video game tester has now become among the easiest career there is.
If you want to be a game tester, you should be able to have the following requirements:
1. You should at least be 18 years old. Video game manufacturing companies would not hire minors mainly because of the existing labor laws.
2. You should have your own high-speed internet access as well as the gadgets or gaming consoles needed to play all types of video games, whether online or otherwise. Video game manufacturing companies would not usually provide the paraphernalia needed in order for you to test the games that they need to have tested.
3. You should develop a professional attitude when dealing with video game testing companies, especially if you are already in the process of giving them a thorough rundown of your observations. You should be diligent in following instructions to a tee.
4. You should have good communication skills both in written and spoken English since these companies usually use English as the main or the secondary mode of communication.
5. You should, of course, have a passion for playing games, online or otherwise.
If you have all these requirements to become a good game tester, you would not land a job unless you market yourself. You need to go to game tester sites and have your resume or qualifications marketed. Some of these game tester sites are not free so you should beware of scams. They would just reap you off without any explanations. So, if you want to be able to make sure that you will be in good hands, you should do your own research.
You can also check with game testing colleagues which sites would really be able to help you land a game testing job. You can also go check game testing forums. Being vigilant at all times, especially if you are going to shell out money, is always a good thing.
