Software QA is Right for You

Could You Be a STAR in Testing?

Companies like Google, LinkedIn, and IBM are supporting a new campaign for "STARs," those who are "Skilled Through Alternative Routes" such as workforce training, bootcamps, and certificate programs rather than through a bachelor’s degree. 
STARs now make up more than half of the United States workforce. This makes STARs an important resource for technology companies trying to meet the demand for strong software QA skills.
Certainly, having a bachelor's degree is important, highly respected, and serves as proof of educational attainment and skills. However, training and credentials such as ASTQB's ISTQB software testing certifications have a necessary role to play in developing the workforce of tomorrow because they provide software quality-specific knowledge and skills.
Whether you have a bachelor's degree or not, getting your first job or getting promoted isn't just yours for the asking. Building a great career comes with the responsibility of learning new skills. The more you do to improve your skills, the more you will get noticed, and the more opportunities you will receive. 
The good news for everyone – college graduates and STARs alike – is that the software testing field rewards knowledge and initiative. Software QA is continually evolving and demand is growing for those who have the know-how and skills to contribute. 
ASTQB supports everyone who wants to be a part of software testing, both graduates and STARS. Regardless of where you start from, ASTQB's software testing career path can help you develop the knowledge and skills that will take to you a great career!
