Testers: Seize the Moment
Get Promoted

Upskill Your Way to Promotion 

"There is a wide gap between vacant positions requiring new skills and competent candidates to fill them," according to Forbes. CareerBuilder reported not too long ago that "1 in 5 workers say their professional skills are not up to date."

This is the opportunity for you to seize the moment and upskill your way to promotion.

Obviously, if you don't have your ISTQB Foundation Level Certification, you need to get that right away. People seeking jobs in the U.S. have said their certifications from ASTQB move their resume to the top of the pile.

The skills gap is not just about the basics, however. This is the moment that you should go beyond the Foundation Level to the specialty and advanced ISTQB certifications. That is how you get promoted.

ISTQB Agile Testing Certification is exceptionally popular in the United States. But if you want to show you're ready for promotion, you need to go for ISTQB Agile Technical Tester Certification as well.

Similarly, if your company runs software through mobile devices, you really need to have ISTQB Mobile Application Testing Certification. Does your company emphasize test automation? Then this is your chance!

You could wait. But the gap exists now. Carpe diem. Seize the day. Find your path to promotion with the ASTQB career road map.

Everyone Should Have This Certification 

How can you improve software quality and make your life easier? By getting everyone – analysts, product managers, and testers – certified in acceptance testing.

When everyone on your team is working with the same acceptance testing knowledge and skills, two great things happen:
  1. You improve the quality of the acceptance testing process
  2. You have a better alignment of the product with the business requirements
How do you achieve this? By having everyone get their ISTQB Acceptance Testing Certification. It's uniquely helpful in building collaboration and improving the final product.

By the way, if you have a group of 5 or more and you want to take the exam on-site at your U.S. work location, we offer great discounts. Contact us for information about group discounts
