Hi Rahul,

If you can get an opportunity to work with product-based company WITH strong QA processes (look for certifications), then nothing like that. You will be able to understand the complete SDLC and this will look really good on your resume .

If not, service based comapnies like Applabs, Disha (now Aztec), Rapidigm etc. are also a good choice for a QA person.

Hi Rahul,

I assume that you have 1 yr. experience with Functionality Testing with some knowledge of scripting/automation on Windows.

Going by above experience. expect approx 3-3.5 in MNCs and approx 2.5 in small to midsize companies.

If you are looking for a change, get in touch with me over email.

Certifications do help in QA. But my opinion is that somebody with approx 1 year of experience and a certification like one offered by CSI or say CSTE, won't work much. Certifications are best when combined with *atleast* 2 years of good/relevant experience.

Well yes I agree wid abhijit .If u have a certification with an handson exp. that will value much.

As the JAVA certification is concerned I wud like to say in QA there is not need to go for language certifications.Insteed only the working knowledge and the flaws , merits and de-merits of a technology and how it works matter which comes after u play with that.Better suggestion will be that u do RnD on different technologies and find out the goods and bads in them try to figure out the logical answer rather than programable answer
Thanks
