Career Workshop

Starting or moving into a new tech career can be one of the most anxious period in your professional journey. An informative career workshop can help reduce your anxiety and ensure success in the job market.


At BusyQA, we run several weekly IT career workshops. These workshops are appropriate for experienced Tech and non-Tech related careers. Our Career Workshop is made up of three stages to ensure all participants are ready for the job market.

Career Knowledge

​Our career workshop consists of three main components to help our students start their high-demand career in IT:

  • Career path clarification 

  • Skill Assessment 

  • Work experience 

Resume & Cover Letter

Our expert career counsellors will work side-by-side with you to build the best and most competitive resume with relevant work experience.

Interview Prep

Interviews are nerve-wracking for almost all of us. The only way to be truly prepared is to practice, practice, practice. We will provide you with an AI driven interview platform to practice and get you ready for your big day.

Keys to a successful QA Career

 

  • Knowledge: Knowledge is about having the right technical expertise required to do the job (60%).

  • Personality: Personality is who you are in a workplace environment. Are you a friendly person to work with? Are you agreeable? Do you radiate positive energy? Do you do what you say and say what you do? (20%)

  • Network: Are you at the right place at the right time? And if so, are you well prepared to take an opportunity the first time it arises? Network is all about who you know and who can do your reference check (20%)
     

QA Resume and Cover Letter

  • Profile: In 2-3 sentences, describe your experience and how it relates to the job you are applying for.

  • Technical Skills: List only the relevant skills to the job – this can include programming language, stack, operating systems, and other technical skills. Be sure to not list too many – no one will read it.

  • Work Experience: Describe ONLY your past experience that directly relates to the job. Listing the previous 4-5 years of experience is sufficient. Be concise and precise and list your achievements.

  • Education: List all education, training ,and certificates as it relates to the job including the year you acquired such education.

  • Cover Letter: No longer necessary. You can skip this process.

 

Interview

  • Everyone is anxious: The employer is just as anxious to find the right employee from a list of 100 or more resumes, so they are just as nervous as you are. RELAX and try to communicate as clearly and pretend like you have other options. 

  • Mirror the interviewer: People tend to like people like themselves, so be sure to mirror the interviewer. Have similar opinion about weather, current affairs, movies, kids, travel etc. Stay clear from politics, race, or religion.

  • Express self confidence: You will master this with many practice. Speak slowly and show passion when talking about yourself and achievement. If you love yourself, then there is a high chance the interviewer will take it as confidence and mastery of the job.

  • Research: Research, research, research about the company. Make sure you understand their values and mission statement. Also try to research if you are replacing anyone or if the company is going through a hiring burst.
