Make it standing out!

Here comes the moment when you have decided to change your workplace. As usually find a new job it’s not so easy as it may seems. Sometimes search process can take a while. In common it lasts from 1 to 6 months, and in common it’s disturbing. But how to speed up this process and spend more time for visiting interviews than for waiting? Sure, that you have already guessed the best accelerator is well written and eye catching resume. What does it mean “ well written”? It’s mean that your future employer or recruiter will easily find all the necessary for him information.

You can reach this with using the correct structure. Also, very important thing is that your resume was appropriative for position you want to apply and even for every specific vacancy. As you know there are exist a few specialisations for a Qa engineer. One of the most popular is Automation Qa Engineer.

In this article we will get acquainted with Skill set which you need to mention in your resume and also will consider examples of Qa Automation Engineer resume as well as automation testing resume for fresher

For a start, let’s figure it out why do employers want hire exactly automation testers:

  • First and the main reason is when testing process just need automated tests that will be run again and again spending much less time for conduction of testing than manual testers could.
  • Second, it’s when team need a qa engineer who just had an experience writing a code, who knows how developing process is going from inside and at first sight will understands the cause of bug.
  • The third reason – it’s specific tools for load testing which you will use, like Jmeter and similar, where to write specific testing scripts you will need to know some programming language.

Now let’s consider difference between manual qa engineer and automation tester, and some notes about what you need to include in your qa automation tester resume:

Distinction between common qa engineer and automation qa engineer it’s of course programming skills. But it’s not about programming like developers do, it’s still testing though in a little bit another way. Usually the main skill of automation qa will be writing of automated tests on pre-prepared test cases. That’s why in our resume we need to mention about skill of creation test cases.

Mostly tests writes for user interface to test functional of developed application or program. And to simplify the process of writing this UI or functional tests testers usually use special frameworks. There are exist a lot of different frameworks for different programming languages as well as for different conditions, but nowadays the most popular and in-demand is automated testing using Selenium with Java. For today we have a very big community of qa engineers who using this tool to write their tests, so if you will have a questions during education – you always can ask for help on forums and be sure that your issue will be resolved. By the way, automation testing with Selenium can afford you a tons of best practises for your issues. That’s why this framework so popular – there are almost no issue that you can’t resolve.
However Selenium with Java it’s not only solution you have to use. Same Selenium can be used with C#, Python,PHP, Perl, JavaScript and Ruby. Also can find suitable testing framework which are not related to Selenium and with any programming language you like. The most important it is show in resume your experience with these frameworks.

More rarely automation tester can write unit tests which checks part (or unit) of developers code or program, but more often developers are writing unit tests by themselves. So if you have an experience of working with this unit test frameworks – don’t forget to specify it.

Sometimes, as were mentioned above, automation qa engineer can may encounter with load testing where programming skills and knowledges of specific frameworks just as must for conduction of qualitative testing. Also point to the load testing tool and and framework or programming language you used with this tool.
