software testing

By khamesrakaushik ·

I would like to know how to start a career in Software Testing.I have done Post Graduation(MCA) from

Rajasthan University jaipur.I am working in a software company as a web developer(PHP) since last 2 years.I have great interest in Software Testing and therefore i am planning to join a Software testing firm.

Following are the queries regarding this:

1) Will it be the right time to change my field from PHP developer to Software testing. Are there any expectations of career growth in that job.

2)How should I proceed in applying for the testing positions since most of the companies desire atleast 2 years of experience in testing whereas i have gained experience in web technology. So i am unable to understand how to start.

3)I am confused which software testing will be best suitable for me ( Manual,QTC, Mobile, Database and others )

4) Can i get any help regarding the list of companies that recruit freshers in software testing.

Please suggest me some ideas as I am really interested in going for S/W testing job. I hope you will give me

all possible suggestions for this job i require. I am waiting for your positive response as soon as possible.

Thanking You in advance.
Please do reply...

It would depend on

your willingness and ability to relocate. Or the ability for you to work from home as an option. I can't be sure but I don't believe Jaipur is a thriving IT hub offering these services.

Answer to your question

by California In reply to software testing

Well it does not matte to relocate or required a IT hub in jaipur or else in any city. Well the most important is matter how you can learn software testing. I would prefer you to go and readt some techniques, methodology and testing phase or on top of it try learning SDLC / STLC. If you know SDLC then brush yourself in testing phases, methodology. This will will you a detailed view and confidence to become a software tester, if you are a technical developer then it would be more ease for you to become a Automate test engineer, which is more require now a days. To learn testing tools, you can visit such website who provide tools, there you will find some material and user guide, using that you can learn theor'tical, once the concept are clear then you can approach companies who recruit fresher or to practive you can download evaulation tools.

ALL the best!! Should you need more info then please write back will try to provide more details.
