While at STAREAST a few weeks ago I mentioned that I was an “accidental tester”, someone who had gotten into testing more by chance than as part of a conscious and planned decision.
After talking to a few self defined “accidental testers” I kept asking people in the conference about their own personal paths into testing, and I found that just about everyone I talked to became a tester from different sides of the working spectrum.
But I see this as am advantage. We are testers because we like to test, and many of us are even pretty good at it. I don’t know many testers who endure working for long in our profession otherwise.
We should not let the fact that we did not get into our profession following a “standard path” affect our self esteem in any way.
A good tester needs to be a self-learner by nature, he won’t have a chance to survive otherwise.
