Contact your local government office of Labor. I am sure they have rate averages.

Its tough to answer this question, let me try...

It depends on:

1. What s/w testing tools you learn and how well you know (application testing tools/network testing tools/security testing tools etc)
2. The kind of domain expertise you possess (industry function).
3. Nature of testing your getting into (Application testing(maintainance) vs product testing).
4. what skills (soft skills/technical skills) you get to ur work.
5. Total experience you have.
6. certifications/ qualification you posses.
7. Demand vs supply (how many jobs are available vs how many individuals are available for that job roles).
8. The profile of the company your getting into.
9. job location of your job.

Based on all the above factors & maybe fewmore, I guess it might between 3k-15k for a start

How to enter into S/W testing job
Hello,

I am writing from Noida. I would like to know how to start the career in Software Testing side. I have completed my Graduation and doing MBA from symbosis pune. Now I am working in one of the BPO(Business Process Outsourcing) company since from 2 years. I started working in BPO after my Graduation it till date. However, I never applied for any other jobs from such a long time and now I have completed my Software Testing tools classes last month and planning to go for a Software side job. Following are the questions from my side:

1) Can I move to Software side in testing. Can i expect any career growth in that job. As I am currently working in BPO am I eligible for switching to S/W testing side.

2) If I am eligible how can I proceed in applying for the positions as all the companies are requesting for atleast 2 years experience. So am unable to understand how to start up.
3) I do have many friends who are suggesting me in preparing resumes but everyone are giving different suggestions and I have already edited my resume 10 times now totally in confusion state which one to be followed.
4) Also I am planning to do Live Project in Automated Testing tool as one of the institute is offering it. Is that helpful for me if I go for it.
5) Are there any companies who give oppertunities in doing project for them as a new tester. Or do they give any job oppertunities to new starters.

Please suggest me some ideas as I am really interested in going for S/W testing job. I hope you will give me possible suggestions in preparing my resume and applying for the job. I will be eagerly waiting for the positive response.
