The Game Testers Academy program will allow you to seek a myriad of unique video game tester jobs, from the comfort of your home, working full or part time. The Game Testers Academy comes with a live and ever growing database of over 200 game tester company contacts including phone numbers, addresses, and even web presence so you don’t have to waste any time getting started racking away the cash as a tester. It also has built in alert system that will email you every time a new job is posted so you can choose whether or not is is one you are interested in pursuing. The neatly formatted GTA also contains some rare niceties such as:
Videos that cover all areas of gaming testing jobs, like applying & interviewing for your first position as a game testing professional. Here is a short list of some of the videos that you will be provided with:
- Learning from the Existing Movers and Shakers in Gaming Industry
- Tips from the Leading Global Game Testers
- Gaming Conventions Videos
- Video Cutting Edge Video Game Company Representatives
- Video Seminars and Training Video Material
- Upload Your Private Videos
Plus new videos are faithfully added each month. The price plan here is very generous however, the reason I knocked a half a star off this one is because two of the three price options do not include permanent access to updates. Although the entire program including the “Unlimited Access” plan is actually cheaper than the Become a Game Tester Program,
I still rate this very highly because of the huge list of additions to this game tester guide. Now in addition to everything else I listed up there, these guys actually throw in more. Nice bonuses are included like:
- How to Get Paid as a Video Game Reviewer
- How to Get Paid to Develop Games
- How to Easily Repair Your X-Box 360
There are so many advantages to this program that I was really close to putting it as number one on the list, but the only thing stopping me is my love of Become a Video Game Tester Program. What it really boils down to is a personal preference in the guide formatting. I am a guy who likes to read from beginning to end. This program has so much great information that it is difficult for me personally to do that. I found myself bouncing all over the place in excitement. So in the end it is obviously your personal preference that will make the choice. I hope this review helps you.
