A lot of people say video games are an unnecessary distraction from getting an education and the reality of life.
However, you can now prove them wrong as there's a dream job which will pay to play the popular football game known as FIFA.
Yes you read that correctly. I recommend cancelling all your summer holiday plans and concentrate on sharpening your FIFA skills.
Bidvine is looking for talented FIFA players to sign up as coaches who'll get paid at least £15 an hour to teach others how to play the game.
To become a Pro FIFA Coach you must provide proof of your level and ability. You can do this by demonstrating what league you play in yourself – only coaches who play in Division One within Online Seasons and/or FIFA Ultimate Team will be accepted.
You can't fake it either by using someone else's account. You must send a photo of your face next to the division you play in in the game to legitimise that the account is yours. You'll also need photo ID, have a PS4 or Xbox One, and a fast internet connection.
It all seems fair enough so why not apply?
What does being a FIFA coach mean?
After the success of the Call of Duty professional player and coach service, Bidvine thinks the same idea will work perfectly for FIFA as well.
People can sign up for the service and ask specific questions related to the game such as which area they’d like help with and like to improve in.
As a Pro FIFA Coach, your job is to help them with these requests and also watch livestream matches to provide real-time mentoring and advice over a headset connection.
Being a FIFA Coach is just like playing the game, but now you'll teach others how to as well.
What you do within the game depends on what your customer asks for and what they'd like to learn – so it'll be something different each day.
How to apply
You can apply through their website and if you get the job, you’ll be able to set your own prices.
With Bidvine saying they'll be rolling this out for other games in the near future, it probably won't be long until you can also get paid for playing the likes of Grand Theft Auto and Minecraft.
