Hello,

I'm providing the answer for your question but make the necessary changes accordingly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Testing accounts for almost 30 percent of the software development market. The global testing market is estimated to be a $13 billion industry. With the boom of the third party software testing business, the need for quality and trained manpower has become a critical issue in the industry.

Software testing has been closely associated with development. Now software testing as a career is evolving rapidly and the profile of a successful tester is remarkably different from that of a successful developer. As testing gains more prominence, a generic career road map for software testing is likely to be established in the years to come.
Software testing cannot be considered as an alternative to software development. Testing and development require different profiles. People working in these fields undertake different types of training. The approach to work is also different and testing can be treated as a separate career path.
Professional training is required to start a career in software testing. Training on the concepts of testing on different hardware configurations, processes, using testing tools and other test enablers, working with test management software, defect tracking tools, etc., are required before working on a live testing project.

Skill sets:-


Recruiters, particularly independent testing vendors, look for the following in their prospective employees:

    [*]Ability to follow processes;
    [*]Ability to work with a problem until solved;
    [*]Aptitude towards problem identification;
    [*]Ability to analyse the reason for defects;
    [*]Knowledge of testing methodology; testing tools, such as WinRunner, Rational Robot, Silk Test, Web Load, etc.
    [/list]

If someone is differentiating your skill on the basis of your work then its ok..But rather just for the sake of comparison ..its rediculous...I think except India , in the world there is no such trype of comparison!!!Career is career.. someone will choose waht he like..
