  • I have an associate’s degree in accounting and an incomplete bachelor’s degree in finance in Russia.

    Last few years I worked for big telecommunication companies as a senior accountant in the inventory department in Moscow.

    Each company change is always a promotion, new skills, and new computer systems.

    That was a great experience. I got to work with great people, who had a lot to teach me about accounting.

    In the last company my team developed inventory accounting from scratch in more than 1000 cell phone stores throughout the country.

    As a senior accountant, I interacted with other colleagues from control, marketing and information technology departments.

    I really learned to listen, communicate and go through the extra mile.

    When we developed operating systems for inventory, even then I felt like a tester: I prepared the necessary forms and reports; coordinated with audit and security departments; composed technical tasks for IT department; then I tested and fixed bugs. It looked like “bug’ life cycle”.

    Then I took maternity leave. After that I moved to the USA and started a new professional path.

    Considering my previous experience as an ‘accountant - tester”, my interest in that, and good feedback from IT colleagues (they always told me: “you would be a good tester”), I decided to start my career path in QA.

    I am not just looking for a job, I am changing my profession, changing it consciously.

    I have plans to get in-depth experience in manual testing, then learn automatic testing and in 5 next years become the one who makes the difference with a big luggage of skills and experience.

        • Hello .
          My name is Victoria Borysyuk , I’m 25 years old. I am from Ukraine

          In 2018, I received a license degree in the specialty
          tourism and hospitality at the Vincent Pol University of Social and Natural Sciences in Lublin, Poland

          I decided to change my profession because, after emigration, many of my acquaintances inspired me to change my profession, since QA gives quite a lot of opportunities.
          The experience that remained after the coronavirus, that stationary work has become unstable, which cannot be said about remote work, the opportunity that QA provides
          You can work almost anywhere in the world
          And also further development in the profession

          After 5 years, I see myself as a program tester, but already with experience.

                • My name is Mustafa. I have a bachelors degree in Hospitality Management in Turkey. I have worked in hospitality for long time. After I moved to the USA, I started to work in hospitality industry as well since I have the experience in that field. When I was in Turkey working in hotels, I was trained as Hotel IT back up person. Couple years after I moved to the USA I found out I have more opportunity to work in IT business and I started to search about it. I got an offer for QA job for 4 months. This experience helped me to decide to switch IT career. As of today I would like to go deeper in QA field to learn and improve my skill to make some difference in software testing.


                  • Hello, my name is Alexandra.

                    My education is an unfinished medical nursing.

                    When I emigrated to America, I started working with children in a kindergarten. My husband is a programmer, he advised me to try to study as a QA tester. In parallel with work, I began to study what QA is, I watched a lot of your videos on YouTube, and I realized that it would suit me, I could develop and advance.

                    Why QA tester, because I want to get a profession that I will like and where I will work with pleasure.

                    In five years, I would like to develop further and become a very good QA tester.


                    • Hello! I am Marina.
                      I have a Medicine Doctor's degree.
                      My work experience is 11 years.
                      After moving to the USA, I can not continue my practice as it takes 5 years or more to confirm my diploma. I don't have that much time. For a while, I didn't know what to do here. I analyzed and talked with people and my choice fell on Software Testing. I like my future profession as I can easily find mistakes, especially in what I am a professional. I plan to work in a company that develops medical devices. In 5 years I see myself as a QA Manager Engineer.​​


                      • My name is Liliya.
                        I am a musician by education, but since 2016, after the child's birth, I have not worked.
                        The only reason I wanted to come to America is education. It's never too late to study and get a new profession here.
                        For a long time I wanted to get a profession related to the computer.
                        I chose QA for starting because it does not require deep computer knowledge.
                        In the future I will develop my skills and study other IT professions.
                        In 5 years I see myself working in a good company as a head of a department.
