Certifications from ASTQB Can Help with Promotions

What is the key to getting a promotion as a software tester? Is it playing corporate politics? Getting “face time” with the boss? Working long hours?

The surest way to be on the shortlist for a promotion is to become the software tester that everyone wants on their team. One straightforward path to help you exhibit your importance and knowledge is through ISTQB Certifications from ASTQB.
