Job hunt for new software tester

Please guys i am looking for junior software tester job, even if it is on a volunteer level I will also be interested, I just need hand on experience


I suggest you share some more information, such as:

  • Where are you based
  • What experience do you have (e.g. maybe in other jobs/industries)
  • Link to your LInkedin profile
  • What you have done so far to look for a job (e.g. which sites)

I don’t think it’s that easy to find a job, and you need some advantage compared to others who probably have some experience and trying to get the same job as you do.
FYI, I’m a senior and was looking for jobs last year; half of my applications were for Junior positions.

I’ll continue from what Nicola mentioned:

  • Besides where you’re based, where are you open to work in? Have you checked Visa/entry requirements?
  • Which languages do you speak(besides English)? Places where I’ve looked for jobs lately ask for French and/or German(common in Central Europe).
  • What would you say are your strengths? Are you a business domain enthusiast(which domain), what have you done do get there? Are you a technical person(can code, script, troubleshoot things, etc…)
  • What have you done to learn software testing (classes, practice, meetups, books, forums you’re active in, coding challenges, bug-hunting, bug-bounty, beta testing, application reviews, blogging…)?
  • How does your presentation look like: the site, resume, profiles on sites? Have you had it reviewed by some software seniors, recruiters, hr reps, who recruit in the area where you’re looking?
