U.S. employers ask for previous testing experience in many of their software testing job postings. So how do you get a software testing job if you don’t have experience?

The solution: Many employers will accept ISTQB software testing certifications from ASTQB and AT*SQA in place of that experience. See the video above.

Earning ISTQB certifications through ASTQB & AT*SQA gives you free extras you can’t get any other way:

You will appear on the Official U.S. List of Certified Software Testers™ that American employers check for ISTQB certification.

You will appear in the ISTQB successful candidate register.

You can appear in the AT*Work™ list of testers available for hire.

You can earn Testing Tiers™ ranking points that increase your level versus other testers.

You can only get all of these free, extra benefits if you purchase your ISTQB certification through ASTQB or our official ISTQB exam provider AT*SQA.

If you looking for your first software testing job, have been laid off from your current testing job, or do freelance software testing, then add yourself to the AT*Work™ list of software testers for hire. AT*Work™ helps ISTQB-certified software testers find software testing jobs. You can appear in AT*Work™ when you earn your ISTQB certification through ASTQB or AT*SQA – it’s another free benefit.
