da Joel on Software:
"Who should be a tester? That’s tricky! Software testing is one of those careers that isn’t that well known, so a lot of people who would be great at testing and would probably enjoy it a lot never consider applying for jobs as testers.
Signs of a good tester:
- Loves a good puzzle, even the kind that takes days to solve
- Likes to think about things methodically
- Generally likes working with software and computers
