This week I had the opportunity to talk with someone within the QA discipline and provide some career advice. We talked from helpful hints on how to get a foot in the door with the resume to a good discussion of QA as a whole.
This was the first instance where someone took up on my offer to have these types of discussions. It was a great conversation and fun to have this type of discussion with someone outside of someone who directly reports to me.
This individual had some great questions from what changes could be done with the resume, how to approach an interview and what could be done to improve knowledge within the industry. The conversation went well over an hour, and that time flew by.
I think these types of conversations are needed to help the community stick together and improve the value that everyone can bring. As I say in every one of my appearances in SPaM Cast “feel free to reach out to me to further the discussion or start a new one”.
Keeping it short this week. If there are any topics you would like to hear, read or discuss about let me know.
