  1. Speaking of the QA scam (or scams), and the way people get into testing with fake experience…
    First, there are no ‘official’ channels to enter software testing. Some come from business, some from tech support and help desk, some use a fake resume.
    Second, the new tester has to provide, once on the job. That’s the real test.

    I’m sure recruiters know very well these aspects, and their main concerns are “will my candidate do the job or not?” and “will my candidate smoothly integrate in that office?”
    **
    Recruiters are necessary gatekeepers, and they must do their job well: their career is on the line.
