PlayStation Network Gets Its Own Reality Show In 'The Tester' Comment by: coyote12 Nominated by: _Hayko
LOL QA Testing is a dream job? Maybe for the naive and the slow kids.
I like how the industry keeps up the myth that QA leads to better jobs in the industry. Sure is some cases it does and you may move up in a company but that is the exception not the rule.
Most companys lay off their testers after a year is up to avoid paying your health insurance and most of that year is spent working for a temp agency hired out that you really work for.
I did that job for a while and it sucks. People that think it must be great I tell them to go to the store and pick out what you think is the worst game there, buy it and play it for a week straight 8 - 12 hours a day. If you think that is fun or a "dream Job" then by all means you can be a tester.
If you really want a dream job in the industry then go to school. Learn Marketing, Programming or 3d Art and animation. One of those 3 skill will get you a good job in the industry. Not testing games.
Most companies would hire monkeys to test games if they could get them to stop flinging poo at each other long enough. Yet at the same time most testing environments resemble and smell like a bunch of monkey's work there. Go figure.

Are You 20-Something Years Old? Do You Want To Love A Game Character? Comment by: Slanzinger Nominated by: Showmeyomoves!
Nah, as far as I know, metrosexual still means people try to make it sound manly. So they have a MANbag, wear MANscara and go through MANstruation.
Although the latter probably means they should go and see a doctor.
