Does the status of chartered IT professional grant any advantage when looking for game programmer jobs?

Hello,

 

I'm currently choosing a university where I would like to do my BSc Computer Science degree and I came across an additional accreditation, which allows to have a membership in The Chartered Institute for IT and become a chartered IT professional.

 

The chartered institute that I've mentioned is a British one, however there should be equivalent ones for other countries as well.

 

I know that chartered status is a requirement for engineers and some other positions to get a decent job in the industry. Is this of any good for a game programmer or is it just a posh title to have on your CV? Would it make any difference for an employer after graduation?

 

Thank you.

It would not add to your programming credentials, but for a small studio it would make you look attractive as someone who could help with their IT needs. It might mean you'd be doing a lot more IT work than you otherwise would.
