17-year-old boy self-learning about software testing

Asked by: Hoà

First, thanks for spending time with me
Now let’s get to the main question: I have learned about software testing on guru99. But I found out all of their materials are concepts, I found few “real” examples. So I am worried that all of my knowledge will be concepts and I cannot join the freelance market to get some hands-on experience.so how can I know if I am capable of being a real tester?

    Hi Hoa,

    Thanks for reaching out and for your question.

    If the “17-year-old” part in your question title is true, this surprises me. You may be the youngest man I know is interested in software testing.

    Now go back to the meat of your question “how can I know if I am capable of being a real tester?”, the answer is no, you don’t know and I don’t know either. The employer will tell you if you’re capable of doing something. If they hire you, it’s a sign that you’re capable of doing something. If they continue hiring you, now it’s true about your capability.

    With this said, my suggestion is to continue learning about sw testing. Don’t limit yourself just by single learning source. Try diversify. Freelance job for software testing is good idea but I’m not sure how competitive it is these days since I haven’t done it for a few years. The best is to find your first full-time job, but it’s also challenging if you’re new (but it’s not something impossible).

    I wish you luck. You can write me email directly if you have questions
