Sounds like a silly question but it would put my mind at ease
Yes.

I've been considering applying for a Game Analyst position. I do have quite a bit of experience with web development (PHP), but I was leaning towards Game Analyst anyway. I've done beta testing quite a bit, and I'm not asking about whether or not I'd be a good fit (I think I would).

But would the job provide experience that would be worthwhile for someone interested in a career in game development/design, in your personal opinion? Is it something I could place on a resumé and have it mean something? And is there mobility available within Riot Games? Say, I start with Game Analyst, but then it turns out down the line I have a real knack for figuring out bugs with the website - would I be able to move around in that case?

It seems like Game Analyst might be more of a "get your foot in the door" type of job. Am I wrong?

I'm not a Rioter (obviously), but from what I've gleaned over some time from Riot responses.. The more senior the position, the more they're willing to shell out to relocate people. So, more experience, more likely to happen.

Now, if you're just going for a Player Support job - not likely.

How do you even get experience in QA? I always see job listings for it that require QA experience, but never any listing for entry level QA jobs. Is it a catch-22?

That exactly. I applied for QA events analyst, not really senior, so I wouldn't expect relocation benefits. However, if you were Game Designer or some kind of Lead, I'm pretty sure they'd help out.

Void: Some QA involves just noticing and reproducing bugs yourself, then sending in reports on them. Other QA jobs can be found in industry: You don't need to start in computer QA to develop the relevant skills needed to succeed there, there are many industry equivalents to QA.

That's surprising. Does that vary depending on the experience of the applicant?
