I love my career. Hope you people will also love being a Quality Assurance engineer. I will recommend this Job only for people who would have no expectations about developing a software or something. This job is suitable only suitable for people who should be dedicated to their work. I would be really happy to do the same profession even if I was asked to change my profession. There are many advantages which I feel in my curent profession. They are as follows :
* Finding fault with other's work is a very easy task to all of us. * Not necessary to work 24/7/365. Required to work only when required and the rest of the time we can be relaxed. * Will enjoy privileges which are not given for other people of the same team. * Only after the approval of the Quality assurance engineer, the software will move to production. Hence the entire team has to depend on us.
Eventhough I love my profession, there are some disadvantages in it. They are as follows.
* People need to be very cautious about their work. * At times we have to stretch our work timings in order to complete the tasks. * Since Quality Assurance Engineers & Testers are the people who find defects in the works of another person, there may be some misunderstandings with the person who did the coding. * There are huge risks involved. Since once the faulted software moves to production due to the lack of our review, then we will be the sole responsibility.
That's all Folks.. Hope you would have had a good knowledge about my Career.
I would recommend this field to anyone who is analytical in nature, and likes to guide their own work.
The basic pattern of Software QA is to:
study the nature of a system (it's intended behavior and usage)
plan a method of research into that system
execute that research
report the outcome of said research
I love my job as a Quality Assurance Manager. I was never really overly creative to be a web designer and not so technically minded to be a software developer so I've found this to be a good middle ground. I love how I'm the first (after the developers of course) to learn the ins and outs of new programs. Though sometimes I'm not always testing the fun new bells and whistles added to our programs. There's a lot of repetition when testing and it can get boring, but knowing that you've ensured the quality and users will be able to use your program with ease is very satisfying.
