Q&A != QA

I’m adding the following to an older article in my networking series (Be Educated) but I don’t want my regular readers to miss it, because it’s pretty important/hilarious.

If you are looking to break into the video game industry, QA is a great place to start. That being said, do not, under any circumstances, ask somebody if they can get you a “Q & A” job. QA stands for “Quality Assurance”. While I suppose in a very broad sense, the early build of a game is posing a question (“Does this build suck?”), and it is the QA tester’s job to provide the answer (“YES!”), there is no such thing as a Q & A job in the game industry, and if you ask for one, you are demonstrating your ignorance. Or at least your lack of eloquence.
