Help Wanted: ESRB Full-Time Game Raters

The Entertainment Software Rating Board is looking for a few good gamers. The task? Work full time on reviewing and assigning ratings to video games. In a brief help-wanted posting, the ESRB says that it is looking for candidates with an "interest in and familiarity with video games," good communications skills, and "experience with children."

Currently, ESRB video game ratings are performed by a part-time staff and are based on reels of representative content sent by the developers and screened by the ESRB. Assuming that the developers make the reel truly representative—and they run the risk of being fined $1 million by the ESRB if they do not—it should result in a rating that accurately reflects a game's content.
