Testing video games from home – it sounds like a pipe dream, I know. For many people, gaming is more than just a distraction, it is a hobby; and if they are lucky, a job as well! Getting a job in this industry can be tough enough on its own in a localized format, but you may be thinking that getting one where you can also work from home is beyond impossible, it simply doesn’t exist! I’m here to inform you that not only do these jobs exist, but I also know how you can get your foot into the door of this industry. Before I continue I would like to state that this is indeed a job, and should be treated as such. If you are looking for a free ride, stop reading now!
The very first thing you need to understand about video game testing jobs is that they very rarely post jobs for everyone to see. These jobs have a lot of competition, and the companies allow people to contact them directly; they reward people who show initiative. It isn’t as easy as finding a company and calling them up, still. You will have to compete with others who may not only have a degree, but also contacts and recommendations within the video game industry! Those are the three major things you can have as an aid to insure employment – degree, contacts, and recommendations.
All hope is not lost, however. I know of someone who is willing to be the contact for you to the gaming industry, increasing your chances of getting a job drastically. The best part is, because they are in contact with so many different and varied game companies, you stand a high chance of getting a genre related job, from FPS to RPG and all in between. It only gets better from here, because as I mentioned earlier many of these companies will allow you to work from home, shipping the games directly to you so you can make reports on them from home, sometimes even allowing you to keep the game! If you wish to learn more and take advantage of this opportunity then head on over to Gaming Tester to see what it is all about. Don’t pass up this opportunity, there couldn’t possibly be a better time than now!
