Are you a gamer and love to play endless amounts of video games, maybe you just play a few. It doesn't matter because you can find some pretty sweet careers in the gaming industry. You can do this by finding game tester job openings online.
Best of all you can have the chance to play unreleased games before your friends even hear about them, and you can get paid to do it.
I would start by looking on your local job search engines for positions as a video game tester or quality assurance tester. Most game developers are located in a very few states and your chances at obtaining one are really slim.
But I had the same problem because I to was in your shoes looking for info on game tester job openings, but had no luck finding one that was accepting applications for any positions. I neither had the experience or degrees for the higher level jobs and the lower area tester jobs kept getting filled as soon as I could locate them.
So I gave up for a while and then one day my friend and I were chatting and he told me how he landed a new job. So I asked him where he was going to work and he said, "I got a job working at home." I was curious because he seemed very excited about it and then he told me how he was going to get paid for playing unreleased video games for top companies before they hit store shelves. And all he had to do to get a guaranteed spot in the video game industry was pay a simple membership fee and then was instructed through quick training how to get a freelance position as a video game tester.
So I took his word for it and I have been a happy game tester ever since for two years now. Sometimes the job is tough but I love playing video games and I wouldn't give up the job for nothing.
So follow your dreams and become a game tester today.
