Software Testing as a career Over the last few years, the profile of the software tester has seen phenomenal growth. Testing has become crucial for several application/product implementations and businesses have begun to realize the importance of structured testing of applications before their release.
In recent times, testing is seen as a good professional career for many. From being a test engineer, one can grow to become a senior test engineer, from a test lead to a test manager; or alternatively, one can become a QA lead or QA Manager. Moreover, the options available in the testing tools side are vast. There are a number of functional, performance, security testing tools besides test management tools like Quality Center from HP, CQTM from IBM etc.

Software performance testing:

Software performance testing careers can range from someone who has experience with a Load Testing tool (such as JMeter, Load Runner, Gatling, etc…) to someone who works at the design and architecture level.
Typically a Performance “Tester” is someone with some skill and experience using tools to execute various types of performance tests (Load, Scalability, Endurance/Soak), generally handing off result and issue analysis to developers.  Whereas a Performance “Engineer” or “SDET” (aka Software Development Engineer in Test) will design and execute tests and issue analysis.  Performance Engineers/SDETs usually have to analyze and resolve threading/race condition and memory leak types of defects.  More senior performance engineers tend to do all of that and work with developers/architects influencing the design of new products/features.
Manual testing is a good way to start career in software testing. Make sure that you understand all the concepts of manual testing and get hands on experience on as many tools and learn techniques. A solid foundation in manual testing is a must for a better career in the QA domain. Unfortunately, many people ignore it.
Once you’ve developed expertise and gained experience in manual testing (about 4-6 months); you can begin learning automation testing. Ensure that in the next 2 years, you get very comfortable with QTP, Selenium, PERL and other scripting languages or tools.
Specialization has come to stay in testing career – following are some of the key areas where one need to specialize to move ahead in career path in testing apart from good knowledge in software lifecycle testing process.

As long as there are softwares/applications being developed on any platform in any language; software testing is inevitable.
Countries that are hubs of outsourcing such as India, Philippines, China, etc. software testing has a major market because of the abundance of skilled labor.
From client’s perspective, software testing is essential to Verify & Validate that the deliverable meets the functional requirements and quality standards.
From service provider agency’s perspective; software testing is a huge market to capitalize on. Since clients want a defect-free end-product, corporations look to hire in good numbers at cost-effective rates, provide exhaustive training and complete projects in short deadlines to maximize profits.
From a software testing professional’s perspective; the market is huge and the eligibility criteria is very low thus allowing access to jobs for almost anyone with a graduate degree. But unfortunately software testing gets complex very quickly after 3-4 years of experience. Since the softwares being developed are amazing, good, bad and ugly; the experience are similar too because of which people bail out due to high complexity in tough projects or get bored due to lack of challenging work in easy projects.
Nonetheless; Software Testing is growing at a very consistent rate in developing countries. The opportunities ahead are very promising; as the digital world progresses from building websites to mobile apps to wearable apps and very soon to Virtual Reality apps. Software Testing is a world worth exploring in the future.
