I have been playing video games ever since I can remember. I played with my dad’s old system when I was a toddler and graduated to electronic sports gaming when I was a teenager. I really liked the competition aspect of electronic sports gaming, plus I was really good at it too. I knew that when I grew up, I wanted to look into eSports careers. I know that probably most kids say that they want to do something like this, but it was more than just words for me.
I wanted to be part of the team that helped create, market or write about these types of games. I had no idea when I was a kid which direction I would go into, but as I got older, I had more resources at my disposal to help me figure it out. The best one is a career site that is dedicated to just jobs involved in the eSports world. I was able to look at leaders in this industry and see what types of jobs they are posting, which helped me immensely as I was starting my college career. While I would have liked to have just jumped right into that world, I knew that I needed the proper education to even get my foot in the door for some of the jobs.
I knew that those specific job listings would not be available when I graduated, but I also knew that there were be a lot more since this is an industry that just keeps growing. I also kept looking at this site as I went through college so I could tailor my education to the listings, since even if one job would disappear, another one or even ore would take its place. When I graduated, I started applying at the jobs that I wanted, and I was interviewed for several of them. I have my foot in the door now, and the sky truly is the limit.
