Description:

We’re led to believe that our careers should take us in a certain direction, that we’ll all end up in leadership or management at some point, and that’s the end of the road; the apex of our careers. Even with the relatively new role of Software Quality Architect in most organizations, it seemed like just one more stop on the way to leadership. Nobody in their right mind would step backwards and demote themselves, right?

Sometimes, your career path leads you in unexpected directions, and there’s nothing to be ashamed of! Join Hilary Weaver-Robb as she shares her journey that took her from QA Lead to QA Engineer, to Quality Architect, and back to Engineer. This journey took time, and a lot of introspection - be prepared to do some of your own!

In this masterclass we will:

  • Rethink career paths (and how they’re not one-size-fits-all)
  • Explore the pros and cons of various roles in the tester’s career path
  • Examine lessons learned from taking a wonky career path
