Essential Advice
the person should have the interest in QA/testing before he starts it as a career.he should have or should improve analytical skills and error finding skills.i advice the person to check the updates in QA/testing in websites like Quality testing,softwaretesting help.
Changes in the industry
when i start QA/testing is mostly concentrated on manual but now more automation tools are deployed and QA industry is grown well with new tools and upgraded versions of old tools.QTP,selenium,loadrunner are most famous and hot tools that hikes the QA/testin.
Plans for the Future
i would like myself as a senior tester with more automation experience along with manual.
A Fine Balance:
A challenge in life make a human more brisk,active and hardwork.when i have any challenging work first i think 'how to work on it and what are the things needed to complete it,priortize the work and schedule the work myself and started working on it'.sometimes we can get a help from seniors.
