Original mentorship program "Way to a QA Team Leader" 

The program will be helpful to Senior QA engineers who want to become a QA lead or those who have just become a lead.

Why should you join now?

Now is the time when you should develop and learn so that later you can show the result that will be evaluated at the performance review.The changes implemented by the team leader do not work immediately, their results become evident over time, so the sooner you start implementing changes, the sooner you will have a chance to get a promotion.
