Default question about QA

since finding a game designer job from the start is very small, the best way imo would be work as game tester.
1)if u find a bug but cant reproduce again, do you still report it saying what exactly happened before the bug appear?
2)do game testers test balance of the game? or only the bug and exploits?
3)what other things game testers test expect bugs?

1. You'd ask the lead tester what s/he wants you to do. Probably depends on the bug, and other factors.
2.a. Yes.
2.b. No.
3. Read http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson5.htm
4. It's vitally important that a tester be an excellent communicator. You should never substitute the chatspeak "u" for the word "you," for instance, unless you're texting someone or engaging in in-game chat or are otherwise communicating in a setting where that sort of shorthand is appropriate.
