As testers, there is a lot of chaos happening in our minds. But, not more than the time we started our career in software testing.
A wise man once said, “We always learn from our experiences.”
These experiences help us learn to make a product better, help us learn to connect with people, be able to understand them and help them solve a problem. And, this learning never stops.
Honestly, as testers, we are all learners. We learn from anyone who demonstrates the real value throughout the journey. And we pass these values to anyone new to software testing. That’s how we grow strong as an industry, making the globe a better place.
We had an open question about what would we say to a fresher tester, and the responses were something worth cheering for and giving an ovation.
