The must-read to anyone who begins his/her journey in QA/ testing in Israel. (It might also come handy to those, working in countries besides Israel, therefore the text is in English)
If you are reading this post, I must congratulate
And now you are starting to look for the job with this certificate! And, surprisingly, at this stage, there is also a huge amount of course out there, which for a certain amount of money
Yes, yes, yes .. All those working in RnD departments, are smart folks, who have studied hard before starting their career . And, most notably, they are constantly learning! And they don’t a shit about this piece of paper you got at a paid course (your certificate). All they care about is what you know and what kind of person you are! So redirect your energy and strength towards continuous learning and growth. And do not waste your time on courses !! Study at home, use your computer, books and let the Google help you!!! Study at least for two hours every day. Everyday! Every fucking day!! Learn for months! Weekends and holidays! And only then you will succeed. That is how it worked for many skilled professionals I am aquatinted with from the QA community. That is their secret. So stop looking for a job – look for knowledge! Try, explore, develop, test!
