    First of all, you have to search opportunities for software trainee. Such positions are offered in software as well as IT based companies. Selection of candidates is done through written test and interview. You can expect technical as well as aptitude model questions in written test. After gaining sufficient experience, you can move in to the role of Software Engineer/Developer. Recruitment details on jobs will be issued in job portals, official portal of the concerned organization, etc. You can apply for matching jobs in public sector through the website of SSC, UPSC, PSC, etc.

    HAI DEAR.,.,.,.,.,.,.


    *I will give a common answer to all these questions whether you should choose
    software testing as your career or not?

    *Let me first explain in brief about software testing. Software testing and quality
    control are the processes by means of which application quality is improved.

    *Software testing is done in each phase of product life cycle i.e from requirement
    specifications , design, coding, to the user acceptance.

    *Many complex software structures require in depth analytical and technical skil
    l to test the applications.

    *Knowledge of programming languages is required for unit testing, scripting
    skill essential for Automation testing.

    *Now we will speak about your career in software testing.

    *No one can guide you choosing your career more than you! Its right and you are the
    only person to decide your career.

    *Do self-assessment to figure out where you can fit well. Do study of your skills,
    interests, strengths, weaknesses.


    Ask some questions to your self like:

    1.What is your goal in life?
    2.What will increase your satisfaction and skill?
    3.What is your interest?
    4.Which skills you have developed in your life till now?
    5.Which training you did that can be applied to future job?



    By answering these questions you will automatically come to decision.

    *To switch to software testing career What skills you will require? Is the most
    important question I think.

    *In my previous post what makes a good test engineer, I mentioned some of the
    software testing required skills.


    1. Communication:

    Customer communication as well as team communication most important for this job.
    Written communication as well!


    2. Technical skill:

    As I mentioned earlier for testing technical domain skill in languages is important.


    Some of the Testing skills are:

    *Project life cycle,
    *Testing concepts,
    *Knowledge of testing types,
    *Programming languages familiarity,
    *Database concepts,
    *Test plan idea,
    *Ability to analyze requirements,
    *Documentation skill,
    *Testing tools

    3. Leadership quality

    4. Analytical and judging skill


    *Donít worry if you donít have some of the skills mentioned above.

    *You can always learn the things if you have interest.

    *Non-IT personas can also grow fast by gaining necessary skills.



    ALL THE BEST..,.,.,.,.,.,,
