What is E-Sports?
Any video game played competitively is considered an esport.
Currently, there are millions of esports fans worldwide and the esports industry is growing rapidly. Opportunities for a career as a professional gamer are constantly emerging, with professional leagues or tours for Street Fighter, League of Legends, Overwatch and others. Even traditional sports are getting in on the action. This summer, the NBA is starting the professional NBA2K League. The NBA2K League and other esports leagues are offering gamers guaranteed salaries, housing, and benefits.
Esports are similar to traditional sports in that only a few become professionals. With that in mind, we help our members understand the career opportunities that the leagues, teams, and ecosystems around the gaming industry present. We want them to know that there are jobs as coaches, tournament organizers, commentators, graphic designers, videographers, writers, data & analytics specialists, brand managers, and salespeople.
