If you are about to graduate or have finished your education, then like millions of students, you too will be thinking about your first career move. Every student wants to end up in an industry where they can not only enjoy their work but also learn and grow as a professional.
Believe it or not, one of the best places to do so is the eSports industry. Evolving from just a video games industry to a global industry where Fortune 500 companies, games developers and millions of dollars have come together, you will be surprised to find many jobs that are not only offering excellent compensation but also wide array of opportunities for growth and success.
This might be a little tricky for you to understand as we know that most of you are well aware of eSports. Students spend most of their free time during their studies playing online games like DOTA and StarCraft in their dorms with their fellow students. So it is understandable if you are feeling skeptical about eSports as an industry where you can start your career.
But the same industry is now worth 700 million dollars and will continue to grow. It has professional companies that are on the lookout for top talent to work with them on their eSports projects like tournaments, sponsorship deals, marketing etc. So why not opt for it.
Here’s a beautiful infographic by Computer Planet that lists some of the top jobs that you can apply for and learn more about having a career in eSports.
