You can "somewhat" magnetize a Screw Driver tip by rubbing the tip on a Magnet many times
Speaker Magnet, magnets that hold things, notes, etc
Otherwise many Auto Parts Stores or Hardware Stores sell Magnetic Tools or even Magnets
You can connect a Magnet to the shaft of the screwdriver to magnetize the screw driver while using it

Let me know if you need further.......

So I need a magnet tip screw driver

No, but it would be best, IF the Screw is metal
OR
You could also use a non drying sticky glue on the tip
I use a product called "dum-dum" it is a hole filler, and does not dry, but is sticky and use a little bit on the tip to hold the screw, metal, brass or plastic

went out and took a look at the real name of the dumdum
It is 3M 08578 strip calk, like:

just a little piece
or I also use a dab of gasket cement
