Becoming a game tester is probably a little more than you would expect.
There are three things you must have before pursuing a game tester job.
A Sincere Love of Playing Video Games!
I mean you love to play all the time and almost never get tired of playing.
If you could be fed through a tube you would play forever. If you’re a casual player then this might not be for you.
You Are Really Good!
You have to also be really good at video games.
These companies don’t have a lot of time waiting for you to learn the game. If you don’t have skills, how can you test a new game for release?
Must be 16 Years of Age
This is a qualification that meets child labor laws and is the minimum age that can be employed for this type of work.
If your just a bit younger then you can always start getting ready by working on your skills and staying up to date with the new games and trends.
If you have these three things then you have the foundation to be a game tester
The next step is creating a gamer profile and getting it out to the appropriate companies for review.
You can do this yourself, or you can sign up with one of the game tester clubs that are legitimate and they will help do most of the ground work for you.
