Popular ISTQB Certifications That Build Your Career

ISTQB offers so much more for your software testing career beyond the Foundation Level certification. Once you have ISTQB CTFL, what other certifications should you look into? The choice is up to you, but here are three popular ISTQB certifications that will build your career:
  • Are you looking for more opportunities? ISTQB Agile Tester is commonly requested by employers.  If you want to expand your career options, this is a great choice.
  • Who wants to get promoted? Almost everyone! That's why ISTQB Test Manager has been popular year after year.
  • Do you want to be in demand in virtually every industry? Then ISTQB Test Automation Engineering is for you. Test automation is hot and doesn't show any sign of slowing down.
In reality, every ISTQB certification is a good choice for your career because it shows your ongoing commitment to strengthening your knowledge. That gets the attention of companies when it is time to choose someone for a job or a promotion!
