In crafting a CV of a Game Tester, present first the skills that will give the employer the impression that you indeed have what it takes to be competent for the job. Game testers need to be highly analytic since the duties mainly revolve on finding glitches in all aspects of a game. Highlight skills in various software and testing tools (Jira, Devtrack, in-house tools etc.). Experience as a previous game tester is not necessary but a great advantage. You should also present all your professional experience in reverse chronological order. A Game Tester CV should be a summary of what you can offer the company, just like the one presented below.
