Testers wondering what to do next and people that lead them.


  • What we can do next

Career options for testers are more confusing than ever these days. I'll give my perspective on possible choices!

"I'm a tester embedded within one team interacting with the same product at the same point in the process". Sound familiar? Either you are or have been in that position. Or you know someone that is or was! Career development is a challenge for a solo tester. Which direction should you head in? Heck, what are the directions?! The options can seem daunting or opaque, especially if this is your first role. I'll share my ideas on what those directions might be.
