“Being part of a vTest i have always worked with a passion because i love my job and i love what i am doing everyday.”
Switching to different technology from one technology is quite tough task but we should always keep a learning approach and face the situation. When you are willing to learn no one can stop you. It will help you increase the confidence and create interest in the things which you are doing.
“If you do what you love, it is the best way to relax. ...”
Working on a new technology is always a challenging task but when there is a approach to go into the system as deep as you can it becomes easier for you and it gives you clear picture of the system.
“I was totally new with the Salesforce when project is handed over to me. But from day one i have started exploring the system and always kept the learning approach so today i can handle the work with Salesforce”.
Taking part into conversations and communicate with team members is most important aspect of a passionate tester. Work can be done faster with effective communication and when there is a communication gap, it can lead into delay as well as business loss.
“The art of communication is the language of leadership”
You should always ask a question to yourself that am i doing right? Am i thinking in correct angle? Because as a tester you should always think with different angles by considering both positive and negative aspects. Your questioning to yourself skill will help you into Test Coverage and effective Test Cases Writing.
Great Attitude is the key when you are testing to break the system - Your self believe comes into picture here. You should always see and try in different angles on how you can break the system. If your test coverage is good, this is going to be easy for you.
Organized process makes the work easy and smooth. As a tester, i always arrange my project work systematically. When you say arrange systematically, your test cases, test data, queries, traceabality matrix should be at one place and well maintained.
“ Organizing is a journey, not a destination.”
So all the best guys for your journey to become a passionate tester…!!!
