I am getting so any mails from our users asking me how to get Manual testing / manual quality analyst
jobs easily as there is lot of competition for those easy jobs.
Here are few tips I would like to share from my own experience.
1) In the resume, never keep your role as only “Manual tester”. Instead, keep Manual/Automated
tester. And then in the description or bullet points, give more focus on manual testing strategies
while including the automation tools you have used little bit such as QTP & Loadrunner.
2) Though it is a manual testing job, keep Quality center (old version is Test director) experience
in almost every project. Because for any project role, manual or automated, quality center or any
other defect tracking tool is a must. And it is very easy to learn. No coding required..
3) Somewhere in the project roles and responsibilities, please mention / highlight that you have
experience in writing SQL queries and Unix commands.
4) Under your roles and responsibilities, the first point should be
” Participated actively in requirement gathering sessions / ZAD sessions and made proposed test
strategy, test cases for the application.”
