LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Hire Diverse Testers Initiative, the brainchild of QualityWorks’ Consulting Group, an LA-Based Software Firm, successfully placed four testers into testing positions just two months after graduation. The four graduates who were hired by Criteria Corp and Equinox Media will continue mentorship with the QualityWorks team throughout their endeavors.
Through the first training program, the Hire Diverse Testers project has built a pool of talented testing professionals with a makeup of over 80% Black, 75% women, and 12% Latinx. After 2 months of intensive training and continuous mentorship, the newly-minted testers have pulled in great interest from corporations that are committed to diversifying their tech teams. QualityWorks is now calling for more companies that have open testing positions to move beyond performative action by filling their roles with highly qualified candidates from the program.

The initiative promises to provide project ready testers that have not only built core testing skills but also the fundamentals of agile, communication, collaboration. Candidates will also receive 6 months of customized technical mentorship by senior testers to meet the specific project needs of each company that joins the initiative. This eliminates the hassle of onboarding and significantly reduces the headache and high costs of a lengthy recruitment process.
