Why Hire Certified Testers

10 Reasons to Hire Certified Testers

A recent study found that more than 75% of CEOs say software failures have harmed their company's reputation in the last five years, and 95% say they are concerned about losing their jobs in the wake of a software failure. 

What can they do to protect their companies and careers? Hire software testers who have been certified by ASTQB and AT*SQA. 

Among the 10 reasons for hiring certified software testers is reducing software defects, of course. But hiring certified software testers also leads to cost savings, faster software development, better retention, and the future-proofing of your company to meet growing software development demands.
