Share your career advice about getting that first job. 

Wanted: Your Career Advice

Do you remember how hard it was to get that first job in QA testing? Maybe you got lucky. But more likely you had to go through the struggle of job searches, applications, and interviews. It's not easy!

The good news is that based on job postings, ISTQB Certification from ASTQB is in demand. Happily, we have seen job postings that say "ISTQB Foundation plus Agile can substitute for one year of experience."

But what else would you suggest for someone trying to get their first job? Here is the essence of a question we recently received:

"I want to make a career change to software testing. I'm getting my Foundation Level certification, but I don't have any experience. What should I do?"

What would you suggest? Is there a way to get practical experience before you get that first job? Can something else help? Create and send us a quick video with your advice. Your video can be as short as 30 seconds. We will give free exam vouchers to those who submit the best videos! 

If you are camera-shy, you can also give us your advice in written form.

We hope to share your advice in an upcoming issue!

Did you know? Only ASTQB and our official ISTQB exam provider AT*SQA can place you on BOTH the Official U.S. List of Certified Software Testers™ plus the ISTQB Successful Candidate Register.

Why does it matter? Because American companies use the Official U.S. List of Certified Software Testers™ to see if you have ISTQB certification. U.S. employers have told us they prefer those who have taken their exam through ASTQB & AT*SQA because it demonstrates both their American English skills and their commitment to communicating effectively with the rest of their American team.

Of course, we'll also add you to the ISTQB Successful Candidate Register, too!
