You’re a professional who likes to take charge of a project and make sure it runs smoothly from start to finish. Your role as a QA professional is needed by employers in a variety of industries and organizations, in both private and public sectors.

You may report to a variety of personnel members depending upon the vertical in which you work. For instance, a QA job in a bank or financial institution may require the QA person to report to a vice president. Or a QA employee within an engineering firm may report to a mid-level manager or even the CEO. As an experienced QA specialist, you could become a Team Lead and report to a C-level manager, such as a COO or CEO. Quality Assurance salaries vary, but increase with experience.
