You can end up working as permanent, contractor (consulting) or as a freelancer. I never came across any part time testing job positions, correct me if I’m wrong.
There are a few methodologies to work in a team and procedures to test, log and sign off tasks and projects, but above all, the basis is to take the ISTQB exam and most of the information you will find here is around the ISTQB as a basic guide, plus tools, technics, opinions, jobs, contracts and freelance around the testing world from all over the world as I learned that there are people from all over the world who visited and still coming back in this blog.
