What about certifications (for example, ISTQB)? One of the most important reasons why certifications exist (if not the only one) is to provide a common "language".
I think there are many methods and techniques that are not clearly defined the terms in testing area. The lack of these terms, which makes it difficult to communicate between testers. For example, we analyze defect trend, and change the order and the item of test. If we have common term that mean this way of thinking, it's really useful.
I'm reading Software Testing: A Craftsman's approach in my spare time, and when I showed it to a head tester in my workplace she said none of the book was helpful.Anyway I don't have much choice but to finish it off, especially considering I spent 70+ CAD on this thing.And one more question - I'm from UW and does google ever look for entry level software testers - Or even volunteer ones that just want some experience at it?
