Help to create Automation testing profile
Iím planning to create profile for job searching(overseas), Need all your suggestion to make it better so that my profile can impress the recruiter.
I have 6 plus yrs of experience in software testing(QTP Automation) worked over 4 companies if i include all my projects it will be hectic for recruiter so I want your valuable suggestions to present it in better way.
I have my framework in github.
Even your small suggestion would make difference
Did i posted in wrong section
I have worked on a lot of jobs and projects over the years. I found chronological order to be the best for me. Sometimes I worked for ten companies in 3 years so make a section starting with a sentence or two saying something such as:
I wrote and debugged Clipper dBASE code at the following 10 companies:
Company A Company B Company C
i would use a lot of "buzz" words because a lot of the recruiters use software that is looking for certain words.
Most of all I would have a native speaker from each country read your resume for that country. Even if I know someone is technically capable, I feel that the person did not take the effort or have a contact to proof read the phrasing and spelling for the target country. For example if I see color spelled as colour it makes me feel that the person did not take the effort to have a proof read done.
I study Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and Russian so I know the difficulties of working with nuances of languages. If I wanted to get a job in one of those countries that speak one of these languages, I'd have someone review my resume and cover letter.
Will follow your suggestion...Thanks Kevin
The reason why i'm asking here is, obviously here we can see lot of people from various regions and QA roles i believe. So plz show some light on this
Job search in India and abroad is very different.
I found Singapore IT market completely different from UK market and UK market very different from the other European countries.
South African testing jobs specification may be very different from the above mentioned countries.
No idea about USA/AUS etc
I'm looking for Singapore and Australia. Having a doubt here where we can refer the job specification for particular country and prepare our profile precisely understandable for them.
In India Job profiles looking in different way... they observed the following points before shortlist the profile
1) Skill sets
2) No of Exp
3) No of companies moved with in period of experience (some companies they will consider this is high priority for shortlisting the profile)
4) Roles and responsibility.
I don't think 4th Point will not be considerable out of India. Some one need to give the suggestion, who are working outside India.
Any suggestion above reply
In my opinion , Indian interviews are more like personal battle ( Sorry if I offended anyone, just personal experience and may be wrong), Interviews are more like - "see I know more than you" kind scenario or try to ask tricky questions that have lower significance in day to day working.
Outside I found more on delivery , approach on problem and communication. I hardly find that people care more about specific technical answer, but they just hover on bigger picture to see if they may get meaningful reasoning in answer. Saying that It doesn't mean that outside it is very good. most of the time I found interviewer who done little technical work and their big picture sometime keep remain big even though you provide the most apt solution
In India, I feel, as rounds ramp up ( until last 1-2 round) interviews become very technical and more technology you cover more favorable result you may get. Outside it is more on the sync of your CV with current job profile ( and mostly with limited technology/tool but demands deeper knowledge)
Completely personal opinion and definitely depend on case by case basis.

Obviously Yogi....I too had similar experience like this. Some of them doesn't really understand what we meant they stick to their answers(maybe referred first link from google ).
