Beth Marshall, Senior Test Engineer at Smoothwall

Topic – The Power Of Reputation

Abstract

Have you ever wondered how some testers seem to always land on their feet when it comes to securing great jobs? Would you like to learn how to take advantage of the hidden jobs market, which some argue accounts for up to 90% of all jobs in tech? I can only speak from experience, but I don’t think this comes from focusing exclusively on your technical skills.

The trick is visibility – and this talk gives you the tools and inspiration to leverage yours in a way that you might still be benefitting from in your quest to be a successful tester in decades from now.

During this brief talk, I will discuss the power of reputation, how to use my free personal reputation audit (link provided) to assess your strengths and weaknesses, and suggest some ways you may become more visible in a positive way to those who could open the next door to a fabulous opportunity in your testing career.

Top Takeaways:

  • Importance of reputation in tester’s career.
  • How to improve your reputation.
