Software testing area varies from domain to domain and company to company. It is really helpful if have knowledge about your domain, some testing tools, automation or if you are certified in ISTQB or in some tools. You will be required some basic skill set to be a software tester.

    Q. How to switch from other domain to Software testing?

    A. It is better to acquire basic knowledge of Manual testing first. Then you can start with automation by learning some tools like QTP, Selenium. If you are having programming skill it will help you in learning Automation testing. You can join some training institute for the same.
