Esports expert shares industry experience

On Wednesday 11 August, Erin Hughes came to talk to the Esports Club, a group for students interested in participating in online gaming competitions and meeting like-minded people.

Erin works at Let’s Play Live in Auckland and is soon moving to Amsterdam to start a new role as Esports Manager at PUBG. Erin elaborated on how esports has developed to be more inclusive of female players. This is due to an increase of female representatives in the industry and in gaming events. Erin encouraged anyone interested in a career in esports to practice and take any opportunities that come your way.

A great start on this pathway would be to join competitions that companies such as Let’s Play Live host. Erin highlighted that esports is an exciting and growing industry.
