Ready for WoW Cataclysm? I sure am. Blizzard is simply amazing. I think one of the best jobs in the world would be to work as a tester on World of Warcraft. Finding employment by testing the world’s greatest MMORPG would truly be a dream career for most of us. Becoming a Blizzard game tester, or even other WoW jobs available, simply has to be the ultimate career. So is World of Warcraft employment difficult to get hired for? How does one become a Wow game tester? What kind of World of Warcraft jobs are available?
There are in fact several Blizzard jobs posted on their website. The Blizzard employment database in fact has dozens of mmorpg jobs available, mostly WoW employment opportunites. They are currently hiring for several game tester positions for World of Warcraft, under the QA department. They are in particular looking for foreign language testers, so if you speak any other language besides English, don’t hesitate to start your Blizzard career by applying here.
One of the things Blizzard looks for in their potential hires, both contract and permanent, is an in-depth knowledge of Blizzard games. Now, with 12 million players and counting, this mostly means World of Warcraft. Do you play? And if so, do you play well? Can you farm 200 gold an hour and hit level 80 in under 2 weeks?
It’s hard to believe these are actual job qualifications, but game companies like to hire gamers - period. And the better you are, the more likely you will be hired, as it demonstrates passion and commitment (yes, I know, being ‘committed’ to playing World of Warcraft 4 hours a day at a minimum is such a burden…:)
