3 Ways to Recession-Proof Your Testing Career

We don't know if a recession is coming, but if it is, the time to prepare is now. Here are three ways to protect your testing career:
  1. If you are already employed as a software tester, this is the time to build your QA testing knowledge. In a poor economy, you want to be the most valuable tester with a broad understanding of many testing areas. If you can do many types of testing, you are the one managers want to keep.
  2. If you are looking for a software QA job, this is the time to build your credentials. You want your resume to go to the top of the stack so you can get the interview. Certifications and micro-credentials can help do that. If two job candidates appear to be essentially equal, who will the hiring manager choose: the tester on the Official U.S. List of Certified & Credentialed Software Testers™ or the one who isn't? 
  3. If you are a QA manager, this is the time to build your team's capacity. During a recession, teams are asked to do more with less. Certifications and micro-credentials provide teams with common QA terminologies and principles. This makes them more efficient so they can get the work done, something higher-level management will notice and appreciate.
AT*SQA makes it easy for you to protect your career and your team with ISTQB software testing certifications and AT*Micro™ software testing micro-credentials. Register today
