Software Test Engineer
Hello, This is Venkatesh here, pursed my B.E (CS&E) in 2005 and currently working as Software Test Engineer in Mumbai. It is being 4 years of my professional life, I have not experienced professional growth as expected. I am confused which field to select to have good growth in this unstable commercial word. Some time I feel to make career with SAP, But when I look into this I find so many modules which back lags me. HR, Sales & Productions, Finance, Material Management, Supply Chain Management. etc..... Can't understand where to stick. Can you please provide me your guidance on this further . I have management skills (or you can say "good facilitator") and would like to purse this and would like to Handle jobs which have more managerial skills. Sorry but I have not done any MBA. And also do not like to work sitting at one place. I await for your favorable reply.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Generally, it is not a good idea to change career path. Already u r working in IT field and hope u have lots of experience also. If it is teasing u to work sitting at one place, u may go for IT support / Hardware Support which may help to roaming u ! But this kind of job will require extensive knowledge of SW / HW both. Coz, actually this kind of job requires instant solution at work place. For this purpose, u have to do OS related global course, like MCSE / CCNA. And if u r interested u can also do HW related like A+ or go for CompTia. I am not going to say very much, next depends on u.

    The answer is hidden in the above "Answer Wiki / in ur Question". As u mentioned here as "Sorry but I have not done any MBA. And also do not like to work sitting at one place". If u want to work without sitting on a fixed place, that is why, I was asked for MCSE/CCNA course. Because, today networking is on hi-edge technology and it can give u some change or adventure in ur work. That does not mean, u never do SAP course ! Currently, u r working as SW Tester and that job involves lots of experience of SW(s). So, if u have with a solid Networking technology, that gives u more opportunities in ur career. And now No 2. Q...."What is the reason that you asked to not shift into SAP?", In the above "Answer Wiki" I never disclosed like that.... U may do SAP course on any module which best suits for u. u may go for "SAP Marketing Functional modules" or Cisco Application Networking for SAP and also look at Here

    Hello Richie, Thank you for your valuable guidance, The study of both MCSE/SAP requires gaining of experience in the industry again as my field is completely away from the above programs. Struggling to get experience after completion of these programs (MCSE/SAP in Functional) is Inevitable. Can you assist me with field which will upgrade career on the basis of my prior experience (s/w testing). Do you have any idea of Auditor. I heard s/w tester can also opt for auditing profession if they have required experience in the testing field. And what are all possible auditing sector that I can move in. Kindly provide your guidance if you or your fiends have any knowledge on the same. Thanking you Venkat

    "Thank you for your valuable guidance," First of all, it is clear that, this is not a guidance rather say it is an opinion. I strongly tell u that, before taking any course, it is necessary to talk with ur nearest persons / well wishers or even consult with a reputed consultant. Now ur next Q..... Auditing Software Testing Process is a course, that helps to testing process audits, audit to verify compliance, Audit for Root Cause Analysis and blah blah.... To ensure transparency and reliability of IT systems it may necessary to audit the Software Development Processes. It is best to u may Link Here to get better idea ! Hope for the best and good luck
