My journey so far at iLAB, growth and development
When I came to iLAB I knew nothing about QA except little theory and practical I gained from varsity. The company took me in their wing and gave me adequate knowledge about QA. It did not just offer improvement of my software skills but I had an opportunity to go through training for every testing tools that are being used in the industries. With the support I got ,passion and dedication I pushed myself to accept the new challenges I was getting at iLAB as I had to put more extra time to be the best .got exposed to work with client for the first time in my career. With iLAB you can move from zero to hero. I’m now a certified tester for (Foundation, Agile and Mobile)from ISTQB because of iLAB.
Advice for new internship candidates.
Testing is not easy, there are problems to solve. The job will likely bring something new every day. If you prefer a boring job ,where you don’t have to think too much then don’t pursue a software testing career. But if you want a job that keeps you on your toes, then you are on the right track. keep focus and accept challenge.
