QA Resume Preparation Guidelines

by admin on September 4, 2015

Even before the interviewer meets you he will meet your resume. The interviewer looking at your resume is 20% of the interview happening without you even knowing it. Attaching a cover letter really impresses and makes you look traditionally formal. Yes, even if you are sending your CV through email send a cover letter.

The following should be included in your resume:

  • Start with an objective or summary, for instance:
    • Worked as a senior tester for more than 4 years.
    • Implemented testing automation in projects.
    • Followed the industry’s best practices and adhered and implemented processes, which enhanced the quality of technical delivery.
    • Pledge to deliver the best technical solutions to the industry.
  • Specify your core strengths at the start of your resume so the interviewer can decide quickly if you are eligible for the position.

For example:

  • Looked after SQA and testing department independently.
  • Played a major role in software testing automation.
  • Worked extensively in software testing planning and estimation.
  • Well-versed with the CMMI process and followed it extensively in projects.
  • Looking forward to work as an SQA or in a senior manager position. (This is also a good place to specify your objective or position, which makes it clear to the interviewer that he should call you for an interview.)

For instance, if you are looking for a senior position specify it explicitly: ‘looking for a senior position.’ Any kind of certification such as CSTE, etc., you should make visible in this section.

  • Once you have specified briefly your goals and what you have done it’s time to specify what type of technology you have worked with. For instance, BVA, automated QA, processes (Six Sigma, CMMI), TPA analysis, etc.
  • After that you can give a run through of your experience company-wise, that is, what company you have worked with, year/month joined and year/month left. This will give an overview to the interviewer of what type of companies you have associated yourself with. Now it’s time to mention all the projects you have worked on until now. It is best to start in descending order, that is, from your current project backward.

For every project include these things:

  • Project name/client name (It’s sometimes unethical to mention a client’s name; I leave it to the readers.)
  • Number of team members.
  • Time span of the project.
  • Tools, languages, and technology used to complete the project.
  • Brief summary of the project. Senior people who have much experience tend to increase their CV by putting in summaries for all projects. It is best for them to just put descriptions of the first three projects in descending order and the rest they can offer verbally during the interview.
  • Finally, include your education and personal details.
  • If working in a foreign country, remember your passport number.
  • Your resume should not be more than 4 to 5 pages.
  • Do not mention your salary in your CV. You can talk about it during the interview.
  • When you are writing summaries of projects make them effective by using verbs such as managed a team of 5 members, architected the project from start to finish, etc.
  • Make 4 to 5 copies of your resume as you will need them.

resume writing serviceResume Writing Service

We will provide you with a professionally written QA resume.

The secret of our QA resume writing service lies in knowing precisely what to put in, precisely what not to put in, and exactly what kind of a spin to put on your resume, to ensure that your resume will stand right out from the crowd – to give you the very best possible chance of getting the QA job you want.  The advantages of having a cleverly written and powerfully-presented resume are obvious.

Once we receive your order, it will be assigned to a professional, highly experienced QA resume writer, skilled in Software Quality Assurance. They will then prepare a draft version of your new resume, before contacting you if necessary to clarify any minor points or to build up on any weaker areas.

Cover Letters

Cover letters are, according to a recent survey, seen by almost 50% of recruiters as being as important as the resume itself, although most people unfortunately spend the least amount of time on them.  When someone has hundreds of resumes to shortlist from, cover letters set the tone of an application, and should inspire the reader to turn over enthusiastically and read the enclosed resume. Take advantage of our cover letter service and maximize your chances of getting through to the interview stage. All of our cover letters are written and printed in the same style as your resume, ensuring a fully co-ordinated image.

Our Guarantees

Of course, under our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, if you’re not 100% happy with your draft resume, we will revise it until you are. Simple as that. Customer service is our top priority – always has been and always will be.  But we generally get it right first time.

You may also wish to read our testimonials page to see what other delighted candidates have to say about our QA resume writing service.

Resume Delivery Methods

Delivery by email (of both drafts and completed orders) is free of charge and all part of the service at SQA Solution .

Email delivery covers the release of your resume (and any other documents you have ordered) in fully editable Microsoft Word format – so that you can print, update, modify, etc. as you wish.

Items which can’t be sent by email, e.g. USB Memory Sticks, are sent by postal mail. Delivery is also free for all orders and all items are carefully packaged in hard-backed envelopes to ensure they arrive undamaged.

Concolic testing, also known as directed automated random testing (DART) or dynamic symbolic execution, is an efficient way to automatically and systematically generate test inputs for programs. Concolic testing uses a combination of runtime symbolic execution and automated theorem proving techniques to automatically generate non-redundant and exhaustive test inputs.  Specifically, concolic testing performs symbolic execution along a concrete execution path, generates a logical formula denoting a constraint on the input values, and solves a constraint to generate new test inputs that would execute the program along previously unexplored paths.

A key goal of concolic testing in the context of software testing is to explore as many different program paths as possible in a given amount of time, and for each path to (1) generate a set of concrete input values exercising that path, and (2) check for the presence of various kinds of errors including assertion violations, uncaught exceptions, security vulnerabilities, and memory corruption. The ability to generate concrete test inputs is one of the major strengths of concolic testing: from a test generation perspective, it allows the creation of high-coverage test suites, while from a bug-finding perspective, it provides developers with a concrete input that triggers the bug, which can be used to confirm and debug the error independently of the symbolic execution tool that generated it.

Concolic testing has inspired the development of several industrial and academic automated testing and security tools such as PEX, SAGE, and YOGI at Microsoft, Apollo at IBM, Conbol at Samsung, and CUTE, jCUTE, CATG, Jalangi, SPLAT, BitBlaze, jFuzz, Oasis, and SmartFuzz in academia.  A central reason behind the wide adoption of concolic testing is that, while concolic testing uses program analysis and automated theorem proving techniques internally, it exposes a testing usage model that is familiar to most software developers.
