Any Suggestion For QA portfolio

How QA portfolio will be, I searched on multiple websites but I didn’t find any proper solution. How the portfolio looks like and what are the things we need to include in it?

It is more demanding for us than it is for designers and developers - they just put work samples of apps they designed and developed, and for us testers we need to get a bit more creative:

  1. If you have your own blog, or write articles for others you can showcase those on your portfolio

  2. Any public speaking activities you should display as well, such as meetups, conferences, workshops, etc. Also, if you are a volunteer or a member of any testing communities I’d show that too.

  3. If you know automation, or are learning it, you can include links for GitHub repositories with your automation code - just try to add a bit of variation, do some UI, and some API automation, and play around with different frameworks to demonstrate that you are a keen learner.

  4. You can get even more original and add samples of how you perform regular QA tasks, a sample of a test plan you’d create, a showcase of a bug report by you, a sample test case/scenario, an exploratory testing charter, and the like.

Here is my attempt at a QA portfolio.

Great question, @noraiz.

Perhaps some of the discussions on these might help:

And this one has recent examples too:

Note at some point the Ministry of Testing platform will make it easy for folks to create their own shareable portfolio. One to watch. :eyes:
