During my time as QA Analyst, I found these 5 principles helped me a lot to succeed as QA team member:
1. Be a team player
Focus on team’s goals
We can see it in most sports. There are no team sports in which one player does it all.
You may have done a stellar job on the part of a job you were responsible for, but that matters very little if the overall project fails to achieve the target.
Instead, think about it this way. The team is your boat. If your boat is sinking and you can do something, just do it. Hence, you need to put in what’s needed to keep the boat together.
