Boost Your Software Testing & Development Career With BlazeMeter University

Test Automation

A recent Guardian article highlighted the ever-increasing use of AI in screening candidates for those looking to grow their software testing or development career. According to the Harvard/Deloitte survey quoted in the article, 88% of employers in the US, UK, and Germany use algorithmic systems to screen out qualified candidates.

The widespread use of automated systems might explain why qualified candidates get rejection after rejection, despite the worldwide talent shortage and the record levels of job openings. 

Another factor is that job descriptions now include an ever-growing number of requirements. If you're lacking specific keywords in your resume, such as "JMeter", “Performance Testing”, or "Mock Services", you might be out of contention before a human reader even gets near your submission.  

Expand Your Skillset With BlazeMeter University 

"Skills are the new currency," writes Ryan Roslansky, CEO of LinkedIn. He continues, “And it’s become increasingly clear that the best way forward – for individuals, businesses, economies, and societies – is a skills-first mindset. Recent LinkedIn data shows that the skill sets for jobs have changed by around 25% since 2015. By 2027, this number is expected to double. That means jobs are changing on you even if you aren’t changing jobs...". 

And what better way of adding to your software testing and development skills than taking a few hours to learn something new with BlazeMeter University

Adding more skills to your skill set shows that you are ambitious, capable, aware of the latest industry trends, and take charge of your own personal growth. Which makes you valuable to any potential employer. 

A recent UNESCO report came to the same conclusion:  

“Among alternative credentials, online certificates currently command the highest value, and are nearly comparable to a traditional degree. Earning an online certificate from an online college, a company or an industry-specific organization is typically much more involved than for the other credentials. The certificates are often connected to specific job functions. Many of these certificates have been created by companies such as Cisco, IBM, or Microsoft to meet their own needs or the needs of their customers.”
