    getting job as a tester

    Hello, I'm new at this forum, have few questions. I'm living in us seattle wa, I have begginers knowlege in c++, c# and java, I want to go into the software testing field. Should I get a software testing certificate in order to get the job? Do you need in depth knowlege of programming? I heard white box testing pays more, what do I need to do to become a white box tester. If I read the source code from any of these programming languages, I know exactly what the code is trying to do... If I need to get a certificate can anyone suggest a best institute online. I can also join the insitute in india online if there are any. Please help. Thank you.

    Re: getting job as a tester

    Hi reg.. you can definetely get a job as a software tester.. provided you are really interested. dont shift just for the sake of PAY!
    Testing is not easy.. you dont need in depth knowledge of programming.. but complete knowledge in STLC, types of testing in detail,
    i dont think you will get a job.. as a - white box tester or black box tester. never heard anything like that.. you need to know all types of testing and ofcourse knowledge in writing the test cases is a must too...

    I agree with Tink here. It's great that you have some knowledge of how a copmuter program should work or how it does interact together. This knowledge will help in testing, for sure. Especially when searching for bugs. However, it doesn't necessarily mean you'll be a white box tester.

    There are a number of specialty areas in SQA and you can definitely find your niche in any of them. However, you won't jump straight to it. There are a lot of fundementals you will need to learn before you become an expert in any one of the areas.
