More Advice: Getting that First QA Testing Job

Our question to you: What advice would you give to someone looking for their first QA testing job?

We received some great ideas from Jeanette Volquardsen, CTFL, CTFL-AT, CTAL-TM, CTAL-ATT, CTAL-SEC:

"If you are first starting out in QA, my advice to you is to get involved. Join your local Quality Assurance chapter, such as CQAA in Chicago (Chicago Quality Assurance Association). They are great for networking and for landing jobs," said Jeanette. "You will be surprised how little and tightknit the QA community is. Everyone knows everyone really quickly, and you want to be known in your QA circle. It has landed me several jobs – and the connections are fun too."

Jeanette continued, "Another solid piece of advice is to take a quality assurance certification. I can, of course, recommend the ISTQB Foundation Level Certification through ASTQB." She added, "The syllabus is online and all you need is your smarts and your will to succeed."

We agree with Jeanette's final thought: "You got this!"
