=================Before selecting Software Testing As a Career - Must Read==============
There are many myths about pursuing a career in software testing - it is not considered a challenging career path, on par with software services in terms of growth and compensation. Let us take a fresh view of what this field has to offer globally - the changing trends in the market, the skill sets required, and the growth and career opportunities that are available to a software test engineer.
===================Breaking the myth======================================================
Most organizations recognize software testing as an independent professional discipline. Software Testing not only brings objectivity and transparency to the defect reporting process, but also improves the core business strategy. Software testing has undergone huge changes due to focus in technology, methodology, and more importantly, business dynamics.Looking at the global trends in the software testing field, we see that the market opportunity for the Indian offshore testing companies is huge. Currently, the Indian software testing industry holds close to 50% of the global outsourced testing market. The Indian market requires almost 35,000 testers to bridge the gap, which will continue to increase to almost 1,65,000 in the year 2013 as per IDC Projections.With focused development of testing frameworks and solution accelerators, the Indian software industry is all set to consolidate its position as a leading high-end provider of testing services. We not only offer high quality software testing services, we are also capable of conceiving high quality testing solutions. From projects which fielded 3 to 5 test engineers, now we have large teams supporting complex testing projects as a part of their COEs (Centres of Excellence). This brings to light that job opportunities are abundant in the testing scene!
=====================Testing as a serious career option=====================================
Once we have broken the myth on job opportunities in the testing field, we now break the second myth that a tester has a limited role to play in the industry. As a career option it is not just open for software professionals but also for professionals from other industry domains, as software testing is not just confined to application testing but covers the whole process of development and quality norms.According to the Agile principle of early involvement, a software tester is expected to get involved from project inception. Testing activity starts right from the requirements-definition stage. In many organizations today, test driven development is the norm. This increased focus on quality has greatly increased the scope of testing activity. Testing has become a serious career option for software engineers. In fact a fresher or someone with 2-3 years of experience might eventually find testing to be the fastest way to gain domain expertise. Testing is now compared at par with other IT services in terms of revenue for companies.Apart from a great career that includes growth and compensation at par with others in the industry; you will get multiple opportunities to work on a wide spectrum of domains and technologies. Software testing professionals have many interesting options today to design their career path based on individual preferences. If you specialize in a particular kind of testing, you can grow as a test architect; focusing on technical testing. Alternatively, you can specialize on a domain and become a functional expert. You also have the option to get into ground-breaking areas such as professional games testing and mobile device testing.A fresher who enters the industry as a test engineer, can choose the testing line or else move towards the quality assurance line where he can become QA lead and then QA manager. A typical career path for a professional tester would unfold as a junior test engineer, test engineer, test analyst, test lead, QA manager, followed by program manager/COE head.
==================Software testers are professional investigators:==========================
So if you have a critical, investigative mind, a strong technical background, and an ability to communicate and connect with people, then a career as a Software Testing Professional awaits you!
