Field of study



Thank you for spending some time to read my resume, and here is little information about my background.

I’m from Taiwan, and I moved to Toronto Canada for my study from high school to college.

After the college graduation from computer technology program at Seneca, I found a job in a QA company which is called QA consultants. The company is delivering the IT services which include software testing and quality assurance solutions. They have a huge number of clients which are quite famous over there (in Canada). And my job duty is to make sure clients' web application or software product is working as intend and user-friendly, also base on their business plan to adjust the test cases, and to make sure cover all their business need. Of course, sometimes I need to work on-side as well, because face-to-face communication is easier to understand what they (the clients) need.

After working there about three years, I had to leave the job due to the incomplete military service in Taiwan. I was being required to come back to Taiwan and finish the service. During that time, I couldn’t renew my passport, so I was not able to go back to Canada and keep working there.

After finishing the military service, I found my first job in Taiwan, which is HP Inc. It is an America company with flexible working hours, but sometimes we still need to overtime to complete our tasks. Basically, what I did, you could refer to my resume for details!

And now, I start looking for a QA related job or software programming jobs in Taiwan.

If you interest about my abilities and skills, I am willing to contribute it and hopefully we could grow up together! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I will be available to meet with you for an interview any time during the week. Thank you for your time and consideration.
