You should have excellent aptitude skills coupled with knowledge of testing methodologies and tools. • As a fresher, most of the time, you would not have exposure to any test cases. In such cases, you could join a training institute that offers hands on testing training. You could also take up some freelance work to improve your experience. • Nowadays most job openings require you to have some certifications. This is made mandatory by most companies so that the candidate can be productive from day 1 and no amount of time or money need to be spent on training the candidates on the basics. • If you are serious about testing career, you could go for certifications like ISTQB which will enhance your value in the job market.

Well, these days, especially in IT field, you need to specialize and not generalize.

  7. 7. Software testing Jobs Projects & Training SOFTWARE TESTING JOB : CHOOSE YOUR NICHE • • • • Some of the popular testing niches you can choose are Manual testing: In this method, a tester takes on the role of the end user- one who will be using the software product. It’s a tedious process by which the tester has to use all of the software features to find bugs. In most cases, testers perform these tests based on an already laid out plan Automation testing: Using this mode of testing, a tester can evaluate software by writing scripts that automate the tasks. No need of manually doing everything which saves a lot of time. This is often the most cost-effective way of testing a software over the long term Performance testing: In this method of testing, software is tested against a specific workload. Some of the metrics that would be evaluated are responsiveness, maximum load capacity and so on. TOPS Technologies:- :9974755006

So you should focus on one area of testing. This will make you a hot property in the job market. Even though you should specialize in one area, you should also try to be familiar with other areas. You must also be flexible enough to shift to another track if required. TOPS Technologies:- :9974755006
  9. 9. Software testing Jobs Projects & Training 4 SOFTWARE TESTING JOB : BUST ALL MYTHS • Sadly, the industry and students have a lot of misconceptions about software testing jobs. • Some of the myths still prevailing are • Software testing is a simple job. So anyone can do it: • Although it’s not rocket science, testing still requires a lot of work and intellect from the part of the tester. So don’t think this is a walk in the park type of job and jump into it. • Testing is a second tier job compared to development: • We had one student apply for a job who supposedly thought that she was entitled to a testing job since she had already worked as a software developer. TOPS Technologies:- :9974755006
  10. 10. Software testing Jobs Projects & Training 4 SOFTWARE TESTING JOB : BUST ALL MYTHS • • • • Her argument was that since testing is inferior to development, and she cracked development interview and worked on a project or two, she was entitled to a job as a tester without an interview. Well, we have news for you. It isn’t the case! Software testing is just as important and valued as software development. So experience in one domain doesn’t necessarily entitle you to a free pass to another. Automation testing means clicking a few buttons and the software will do it for you. While it can be true for some existing test cases, most of the time you’d have to create the script for automation testing. So don’t think that it will be easy and since you don’t know/hate programming, it’s the perfect opportunity for you. TOPS Technologies:- :9974755006
  11. 11. 5 SOFTWARE TESTINGSoftware testing Jobs Projects & Training JOB : WRITE A PERFECT COVER LETTER AND RESUME • How many times have you applied to a set of jobs at a stretch using the same resume and not even thinking about including a cover letter? • If you are like most people applying for a job, you reply should be “most of the time” or “always”. • We receive several resumes each day from candidates who simply attach their fresher resume and blindly apply to just about any job they can without even reading the titles. Do you really think a recruiter will take the pain to evaluate you after such an attempt? • Always customize your resume and make sure that you include a custom cover letter with each application. Instead of trying to apply to 50 different employers at a stretch, apply to just a few relevant ones. • You’ll drastically improve your chances of hearing back from the employer.
