Many employers prefer candidates to hold a bachelor’s degree in engineering, math, or computer science, although a degree in these fields isn’t always required. If you have solid letters of recommendation or references, a stable work history, and years of experience, you could potentially land a job without earning a college degree. An intermediate-level software testing position usually requires at least three to six years of software testing experience or a combination of experience and education.
Skills Required in Software Testing

Regardless of the career path you take, there are certain skills that are critical if you are considering becoming a software tester. You should have thorough knowledge of several testing tools, be a multi-tasker, and be fluent in Windows, Linux, and/or UNIX as well as command-line and scripting tools. Excellent communication skills are a must, particularly in terms of customer service, product management, operations, and development. You should be able to understand environments or platforms as well as different development methodologies such as Scrum and Agile, and you will need to perform software testing in all phases of the software life cycle. Finally, knowledge of programming languages such as Ruby on Rails, PHP, Python, SQL, C# or C++, JavaScript, and Java is important for success in this career.
