party1girlHi, how do I get a job in igaming? I was told that there is a degree course in the UK - I have a friend working in a poker company as a customer support agent - I don't think she has any gaming qualifications though.This all depends on which area of the sector you are looking for work in. Developers will need good programming skills. Java is arguably the main language used, Flash is also in demand. Then there are the database administrators (Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, MS SQL), systems admins (Linux, Solaris, Windows) and network/security people (all things IP). If you're looking at the front line of operations, you can join without too much knowledge as training will be provided, but you should understand the basics of the games! Affiliate managers are constantly in demand and you should have good marketing skills and be able to deal with people. Odds compilers also are also constantly being sought. The list goes on and on. Both BettingJobs.com and Pentasia can provide a list of positions available and the requirements for each role. It's always beneficial to register with them both so they have your details on file.
There are a wide range of opportunities available in igaming, but a degree is not necessary; good skills, a willingness to learn and above all a friendly personality are essential.
I love all forms of gaming and have recently started playing Texas Hold'em too.
I have no IT skills etc but would definitely be interested starting in Customer Support or a similar role and then hopefully moving up after some time. I'll do as you recommended and contact bettingjobs and pentasia.
The trick is to get your foot in the door. Once you have some experience, you'll easily find work.
What are you looking for and what languages do you speak? Would you be interested to relocate?
