Python interview questions for QA Testers

Python interview questions should not be a problem for QA Tester, who mentioned a few years of Python experience in the resume. In many companies Python is being used for for creating automated testing frameworks, for writing automated tests, build scripts, system monitoring and logging tools and so on. As result the demand for QA Tester with Python experience increased dramatically, but employees are looking for experienced testers and the hiring process becomes the challenging area.

The first area are to look for is QA Tester resume. I often see Python in summary of skills and qualifications section of the resume, but it is completely not clear how the interviewee was using Python, because there are not references to Python experience or tools anywhere else in resume or in the best case QA Tester mentions Python in education section as Udacity Online Course: Programming in Python (CS101). First things first - update your resume with a real life Python experience. It could something really short like "created and maintained server-side integration tests - Python and Selenium WebDriver running with every build (Git, Jenkins) on AWS (Amazon Web Services)", but it would help you to explain how you were using Python in your testing life. Keep in mind the interviewer will grill you for every word you have put in your SQA Tester Resume, so QA Engineer should not lie in resume about Python experience.

In the next article, I will cover Python coding interview questions for QA Testers. In mean time you could look at best Python books for beginners in order to prepare for an interview.
