I’m an aspiring tester at the start of my career change journey. I have primarily a PMO background, including some experience of IT projects delivered by both Agile and Waterfall methods. I started to explore alternative careers and having having undertaken elements of UAT in the past I had a particular draw towards testing. I’ve only become more interested the more I have learned.
I’m working through online materials and the ISTBQ syllabus but I appreciate this is entirely theoretical. It would be great if I could find a mentor who can support me with obtaining a real world perspective of testing.
I’m really enthusiastic and driven to make this change. My aim is to try and secure my first role in about 6 months from now.
I would love to hear from anyone who might be able to help either in reply on this thread, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Inspired by the MoT essentials I also have a blog: https://harneytester.wordpress.com which may help explain a bit more about me.
Thanks for reading. I’m happy to answer any questions.
