The technological advancements that have been taking place over the past few years, have created a lot of job opportunities for people that come in different backgrounds and social classes. This includes exciting careers in the video game industry (also referred to as E-sports). We have decided to put together an article to review 4 careers you should consider persuing.


If you are good at doing research, keeping up with the latest developments and translating your ideas into paper, a job as a journalist would be highly recommended for you. You can create content for various media platforms including newspapers, websites, blogs and even YouTube.

— For a specialization job like this one a degree in journalism would be very advantageous.

— Enquire with companies that offer E-sports services and ask them if they have any entry level positions that need to be filled.

2.Booking agent

For gamers to make money, they need to get gigs or bookings and this can only happen if they have a strong team of agents besides them. As a booking agent your job is to secure jobs for players, scout for new talent and negotiate contracts for your clients.

— There are so many job postings for agents on Indeed. Create an account and search for vacancies.

— Learn about the working of this industry. What does it takes to build a strong network and create a futile ground for growth for players? This is the question that will help you when doing your research.

3.Sales manager

The E-sports industry is very competitive and requires each and every company to have a sales person that is just as strong as the competition. If you are good at convincing people and explaining things, being a sales person is for you.

— Start reading books to help you gain more information about the business.

— There's a lot of online courses that you can enroll with online. I would recommend using Udemy.


Yes, even on E-sports referees are needed. They make sure that the rules of the game are followed and players don't violate them. This requires you to have an in-depth knowledge about different games and the latest updates.
