I'm a QA Engineer, a writer of fiction, a gender queer human with no interest in plural pronouns, so she/he variations are all good. I love women's soccer, my family, many animals (not all mine) and anyplace that let's me see nothing but water or mountains on the horizon. 

I am a WFH full time breaker of code so it should be no surprise that one of my hobbies include manual metal puzzles to improve logic skills. I also love woodworking in various forms. I'm a learning junkie so I like hobbies that will continue to teach me rather than allow me to master them.

Something I've learned since doing a code bootcamp in 2019. There wasn't a course for QA. My first job out of school was as a VERY junior QA engineer. I knew nothing about the different test methods, how to write a test plan, testing tools, nothing. Heck, I'd never even heard of half of it. 

We need to raise the bar for QA testing in the industry. I've been asked to QA things that were already in production and live to users. Um, kinda too late-isn't it? (I turned down that side gig). 
Where can junior QA's turn when they need an education? Udemy is hit or miss, YouTube same for QA knowledge. The ISTQA standards were never highlighted to me, I found out about the Foundation level and other certifications on my own. 

How can we do better with Junior/entry level engineers that we put in QA roles fresh from school? How can we keep those people from getting frustrated and leaving?

I'm working on learning Test Automation with Cypress and Applitools. Anyone have any good tips on how to use selectors for React Components that are re-used across multiple applications?
