As of today, the latest graduating class from MindSpark Training Academy has officially joined the MindSpark QA team. This marks the beginning of their apprenticeship with the company. During their apprenticeship, our new employees will begin their career by shadowing our QA analysts. The shadowing process will allow them to become familiarized with the applications we are currently testing, the tools we use to test those applications, and how they will go about performing their day to day tasks. This process will ensure a smooth and easy transition to the MindSpark work environment. Once the Apprentices achieve the required skills and performance criteria , they will then be promoted to Analysts.
