Unfortunately no one knows you, what you applied for(job desc), the company, what they need.
So I think almost any advice given would be a bad one.
Good luck for your interview! Treat it as a conversation - you are interviewing the company as much as they are interviewing you! Read up on the company and know what they’re about. Have some questions to show your interest.
Some of how you interact in interview is going to depend on :
- If the role has opportunity for automation or tooling development to optimise testing speed, and if that kind of thing interests you. I have had to turn down test jobs because the scope was exclusively manual testing.
- If the role is working for a subcontractor or “test house”, because that changes the kind of options you have.
- Have a question about kinds of testing tools and technologies they expect candidates to know. This can spark deeper discussions about techniques and so on.
- Try to find out if the interview is for “team fit” or for “tech fit”, some companies do these in different order, but it’s always good to know which one is coming first.
Agree w @melissafisher , have some questions of your own ready, like how often do you have company socials, where was the last Christmas (insert relevant festival here) party held? For example, My current employer actually seem to want to celebrate many times in the year; and other kinds of questions that may get the “interviewer” to tell you if they love working there or not. My boss gave us the day off for JuneTeenth for example , which was kinda weird.
Thank you so much to all, It’s very useful to me and I have cracked 2 rounds in my interview with the help of your references and this manual testing interview questions list.
Nice. “Pesticide paradox” is a new one on me, I like it. That is a helpful resource there @adisharma .
