“I want to do a software testing course so I need your guidance which institute I join? I am preferring the institute offering placement after completion of course”
Which Software Testing Training 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 gives you 100% job guarantee after course completion. If any institute claiming this then get detail info of such institutes before joining. And even don’t expect 100% placement guarantee from any institute. Focus on the course content and quality of teaching. Institutes can only assist you getting the job interview calls. It’s up to you, how to convert those opportunities into job offers by presenting your skill at the time of interview.
I will advise some criteria by which you can select the institute.
Ask these questions to 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) Which tools covered in Automation testing course?
5) Are you going to provide automation tools for practice while in class?
6) Which projects do you use for automation testing course? Live or dummy projects?
7) And ask if you have any specific requirement to join the course.
If you get answers to these questions then it’s not difficult to select any institute to learn software testing.

“Hi, this is Mahi. I am recently joined in a company as software tester on a maintenance intranet project. I am the only one 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 a little more, you will find hundreds of different software testing processes but these are all depend on project environment.
So I suggest to take your own route. You have chance to build it from scratch. Select the process which works best for you.
Still, to get started here is the general process followed in software testing environment:
“What is actual testing process in practical or company environment”
I am assuming you get 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 from 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 new build you can perform smoke testing on new build with these BVT cases. If possible try to automate BVT process. This way for each new build you can perform BVT quickly and can start doing the detail build verification if BVT pass. You can write test scenarios from software requirements while development is under progress. After BVT, verify these test scenarios for build under test and generate the test report.
Hope this is helpful for you to get started!
