“I want to take a Software Testing course so I need your guidance on which institute I should join? I am preferring the institute to offer placement after completion of the course”

Selecting a good software testing institute is always a tough task. Many institutes fake about their staff skills, education, and experience. Also, they make false commitments of 100% placement. Beware of such institutes which give you 100% job guarantee after course completion.
If any institute is claiming this then get detailed info of such institutes before joining. Don’t even expect a 100% placement guarantee from any institute.
Focus on the course content and quality of teaching. Institutes can only assist you in getting job interview calls. It’s up to you on how to convert those opportunities into job offers by presenting your skills at the time of the interview.
Given below are some criteria by which you can select the institute.
Ask these questions to the institute counselor:
#1) What is the course syllabus?
#2) Who is your mentor and what is his/her qualification?
#3) Are you covering manual and/or automation testing in this course?
#4) What tools are covered in the Automation testing course?
#5) Are you going to provide automation tools for practice while in class?
#6) Which projects do you use for the Automation testing course? Live or dummy projects?
#7) Ask if you have any specific requirements to join the course.
If you get the answers to these questions then it’s not difficult to select any institute to learn software testing.

“Hi, this is Mahi. I have recently joined a company as a Software tester on a maintenance intranet project. I am the only tester on my team and there are no standard testing processes defined in my project.
How can I initiate the testing processes on my project and is there any method to test maintenance product?”
In my experience, making your own working process is always a better solution. Do not follow any process as it is said to be standard, follow the process which works best for you, your environment and your project.
If you Google it a little more, you will find hundreds of different software testing processes but all these depend on the project environment. I suggest taking your own route. You have the chance to build it from scratch. Select the process that works best for you.
Still, to get started, here is the general process followed in the Software Testing environment:
“What is the actual testing process in a practical or company environment”
I am assuming you will get the Requirement documents before starting to test any application. You can start preparing test documents (use Testing Templates) like Test Plan, Test Strategy, Test cases from requirements and get these documents approved by your project manager.
Maintenance projects are generally agile in nature. In such cases, you don’t get time for writing test cases. You first identify some crucial tasks from your project. Write BVT cases for these tasks. So when you get a new build you can perform smoke testing on a new build with these BVT cases.
If possible try to automate the BVT process. This way for each new build you can perform BVT quickly and can start doing detailed build verification if BVT passes. You can write test scenarios based on software requirements while development is in progress. After BVT, verify these test scenarios to build under test and generate the test report.
Hope this helps you get started!
