From the series of posts around Mercury Test Director (I continue to call it this way because most people know it by this name, even though it’s now called HP Quality Center), I’m posting three screenshots to help you see how the tool looks like in case you haven’t worked with it, but you’re asked to.
Lots of times recruiters ask for a specific number of years of Mercury experience and if you don’t have it, your chances to get the job drop considerably. But I say that one of the strengths we all have (or should have) as testers is that we are able to learn how a tool works in a matter of hours. And this is what I also tell to recruiters who tell me they want somebody with this particular experience.
There’s many testing tools out there. For a tester, using Mercury or DDTS Rational it’s the same thing. It’s not rocket science to learn how these tools work; having years of experience in using them for test case writing, execution and defect tracking should definitely NOT be a criteria for hiring.
This link sends you to the Free downloads page, where you can download the Mercury screenshots. Feel free to pass on.
