Here is all you need to know to make career in Software Testing!!




Hello Student,
Greetings of the Day!!

There are great opportunities in software testing and as you are a BCA student, you need not worry about the skills required for the testing role. Now, there is a shift going on in this industry. Most reputed companies are shifting from normal testing profile to SDET i.e. Software Design Engineer in Testing. This means even though you are tester, you are expected to know the working of the programming on which their product is based on.
So as a student you should focus on languages you are working on. That will help you on the high term.


There are different testing frameworks and most of them are complex and a student is not 
expected to learn that, different companies use different framework and they give ample 
amount of time and training for you to get a hold on the testing framework. For now, you should focus on the programming languages, object oriented programming basics, operating system and bit of database mostly relational. Do not worry about the skills and knowledge specific to be a software tester.
If you are a fresher and just passed out from your college or passing out in coming months then you need to prepare well for some software testing methodologies. Prepare all the manual testing concepts. If possible have some hands-on on some automation and bug tracking tools like win runner and test director. It is always a good idea to join any software testing institute or class which will provide you a good start and direction of preparation. You can join any 4 months duration software testing course or can do diploma in software testing which is typically of 6 months to 1 year. Keep the preparation going on in your course duration. This will help you to start giving interviews right after getting over your course.

Software testing is not ‘anyone can do career!’ Remove this attitude from your mind. Testing requires in depth knowledge of SDLC, out of box thinking, analytical skill and some 
programming language skill apart from software testing basics.

Best of Luck .......
