    My name is George Arnott and i’m currently on my second year of studying Media Production, i’m due to start my placement next year and am really interested in finding a place as a games tester for a video game publisher, i’ve looked on my career hub and nothing came up so I went to the careers office and received some useful information on how to research these jobs, I was just wondering if there is any more information or tips that you could tell me to help?
    Thank you for your time
    Kind regards
