ISTQB certifications are being requested in every part of the U.S. but "Remote" is now one of the most common requests. If you want a job on the East Coast, or West Coast, or South, or North, there is a U.S. company requesting ISTQB-certified testers there. But if you want to work remotely, there is a big demand among U.S. employers asking for remote ISTQB-certified testers, too.
ISTQB certifications are not just for entry-level in the U.S. Entry-level jobs asking for ISTQB certification are numerous, but there are even more mid-level and senior-level jobs than ever before. If you aren't moving up the career path with ISTQB certifications and the Testing Tiers® levels, you are missing out on some great, high-paying software testing jobs.
A Bright Outlook for Testers in the U.S.
O*NET, a service of the U.S. Department of Labor, has designated Software Quality Assurance Analysts and Testers as an occupation with a "Bright Outlook."
That means the occupation is expected to grow rapidly in the U.S. over the next several years or will have large numbers of U.S. job openings.
As the official representative of ISTQB in the United States, ASTQB is proud to have helped O*NET and the U.S. Department of Labor gather data on software testing in the United States.
