Software testing opportunities
With so many sectors leveraging Information Technology to simplify, improve and innovate business processes in their respective fields (Oil & Exploration, Telecom, Health Care, Air Travel etc....) the potential for software development is immense. For each project, a team of testing professionals is a must. Different projects carry different ratio of Development personnel to Testing personnel but the industry practice is 3: 1.
