Get a Job in Software Testing

Are you looking for a job in software testing, or a software QA job?

Then you need the power of ISTQB software testing certification from ASTQB, the American Software Testing Qualifications Board.

Why is certification through ASTQB so important to get a job testing software?
If you want to work for an American company as an employee or contractor, even from another country, you must register for the ISTQB exam through this site, the ASTQB website. That is because American companies check this, the ASTQB website (not the ISTQB website), to determine if you are certified.

ISTQB Certification is the global standard for software testing certification. It is by far the #1 software testing certification in the world, used by more than 570,000 testers in 100+ countries.

But just as importantly, if you want to work for a U.S. company, even from another country, you must register for the ISTQB exam here on the ASTQB website. U.S. companies check with ASTQB to see if you are in the official list of U.S. certified testers.
