First industry job - QA testing interview

Posted 19 April 2012 - 10:07 AM

Hi guys

Okay so here is the deal. I'm in my third year of CIS and have applied for a coop position with a local software development company. Originally I had applied for a developer position, the interviewer determined that I was not qualified enough but asked to consider me for the quality assurance position and encouraged me that if it worked out they would help me gain the experience to get into a developer position.

Out of approx 15 candidates I and I believe 3-5 others passed to the second round (of three) interviews.

So this next interview is a technical test. From what I understand I will be put in a room, with a computer hooked up to a big screen and other developers and QA employees will watch me apply QA techniques to the software, I have no idea if it is execution based, non-execution, or what.

So give me advice! I'm pretty nervous, and I really want this job!

Cheers
Metric

Bah sorry, on what could happen in this interview. They have been very vague on it despite my queries. I have a feeling it will be execution based testing.

Anyway advice for technical test for a QA position.

Go in and do what you do. They're interested in seeing how you work on a real project, today. So go in and do that. Impress them with who you are, not with who you think they want you to be.
