2. This is a job I inquired about for a games tester for sega, there wasnt an audio engineer.There arent many known positions for a game audio engineer that I could find so I chose to inquireabout some other jobs that appeal to me. This is a position at Rockstar as an animator which I havesome confidence. 3. This is the email I received as feedback from the one I sent, I didnt find this very helpful becausethey didnt give me any information as to what I require they just said they were busy & they lookedforward to seeing my application.This I didnt find very helpful either but out of the ones I received back this was the most helpful.I didnt get many results from the email I sent but I did send the email to a few other companiessuch as Naughty Dog, Rock steady & Valve. 4. I have learned that some companies are not interested in new applicants at the minute, for the jobrole of being an audio engineer I didnt find any information which was any use from the emails Ireceived, because of this I had to look on the internet for an average audio engineers skills andqualifications needed but from what I know from a previous set of work is that most jobs require adegree in university or a long time experience in the gaming industry.From the information I have found out from the internet the average audio engineer requires:An audio engineer requires attending a vocational course for a year.During the course you gain more knowledge and skills of being an audio engineer.Requires at least a few years of experience.To be a successful engineer you need to learn the trade of musician and some knowledge ofcomputer software.
