I want to go to school for the easiest office or computer job what is the easiest office or computer job? and i want to know if software quality assurance testing is the easiest computer job?
I am working as a counsellor in educational academy. I am good in communication, good aptitude. I am not much interested in programming, so i thought software Testing & quality assurance are the right path. Please guide me, how to get into this career? Is this promising career? Can i make successful transistion?
I have just been offered a job as a Software Quality Assurance Intern. The intent of this "internship" is for me work part-time during the remainder of my schooling (2 semesters) and full-time during the summer (1 summer) and receive a full-time job offer when I graduate.
The reasons I have to doubt that a 1099 is correct (instead of a W2) are:
1. They have offered me hourly compensation paid by a 1099 form.
2. I will be expected to show-up based on a schedule that I give them to work around my school (I will have expected hours).
3. I will be expected to do the work based on how my supervisor tells me. (I won't have autonomy to simply deliver a finished product -- I am working with a team there.)
I think (from Googling) a good gauge of whether work is eligible for 1099 payment is if I could outsource it to someone else and simply deliver a finished product, obviously that is not possible.
Some related questions:
I will likely ask for a W2 regardless (it can't hurt) but I am interested in seeing if this is even technically legal for the company to do.
Also, I would prefer being paid by W2. What are some things that I could say to convince the company to give me a W2? (Whether they be legal or otherwise).
I negotiated this salary up quite a bit from where it started (around 60?p -- they wanted to pay cheaply for me because I would be an "intern") but should I ask for more if a 1099 is what they choose?
I should clarify on the 60?p from initial offer for one of the responders -- they were low balling. That extra $$ was not to adjust for the 1099.
Also, I DO like the company and want to work for them full-time after graduation... I'm hoping this is just a simple misstep from them.
So, I am a Quality Assurance Analyst with almost 13 years experience. I am bored with Quality Assurance. I can do it with my eyes closed. My question is this: What is the fastest way to get a job doing software development? I have self studied Java and C#. I also have half a masters degree in Computer Science. My undergrad degree is in something other than computers. Do I go for certificates? Do hiring managers look at those?

I was thinking becoming a Quality Assurance Software Tester. Now what is the path to get there? Do I need to go to school? Or can I just self -taugh myself for that? I am 45 so that will be ideal for me as I am not very good at programming. Thank you.
I recently graduated from college and have been working for a few months in QA as an independent contractor. For a certain software project, I am in charge of writing test scripts, testing new features, organizing and administrating regression testing, and making sure the program works correctly in general. My degree is not in software, but it is in a technical field. I've been making $25/hr, but now they're hiring me on full time. I've never had a full salaried job before and am wondering what salary I should expect. Estimates?

I am going to major in Information systems management and technology, but recently I've been looking at various job listings and happened to see that most employers want 5+ years of experience----coupled with hundreds of certifications that must be constantly renewed. These demanding requirements have caused me to doubt this major.... Are there any jobs in this field that are easy to break into and do not require so many certifications and experience?

I've been searching, but it seems like I am mostly finding QA Software Engineers - how can I narrow my results?
I'm afraid that no one seems to be getting what I was asking. I wanted titles for NON Software QA Engineers - but all I got were more things to call Software QA Engineers.
I'll put this up to a vote - thanks :-)
I am a recent graduate and I have two job offers.
The first is with a drilling company doing well planning, and the other is with a software company doing quality assurance.
The drilling company pays ~40k with full benefits
The software company pays ~48.5k with full benefits
Both have pros and cons. Just want some other opinions, ideas that I may not have thought of and ect.
I have a Bachelor's degree in computer science. What can I do that isn't strictly programming or software development (it can involve some programming, but not where 100?f your work is coding)? Also what can I do that's outside of the IT industry? And what would I need to have or learn besides my degree to get there?
