Game Testers are also considered quality control inspectors because they verify that products meet certain standards and try out products to determine whether or not any flaws exist. Example resumes in this field show such skills as documenting issues and experiences with gameplay for the development team, and assisting other testers with troubleshooting issues on their platform. Educational backgrounds of candidates vary depending on the employer, though an undergraduate degree is generally either required or preferred on applicants' resumes.
