I am working as a QA but now my team has put me into ETL. Will it help in testing if I learn ETL process?

I want to pursue my career in QA

Remember to avoid talking solely about development on your resume without being prepared to answer why you are in QA. I have a heavy development background and every interview I get asked 'Why are you not a developer?' – Paul Muir May 27 '14 at 11:40

It does. There are many organizations that require ETL testers. The first requirement for an ETL tester position, of course, is knowledge/experience in ETL and related fields. In fact, there is a dearth of ETL testers where I am based. A mid level company my friend(an ETL tester) works in started taking in manual testers and training them on ETL because they couldn't find fitting candidates.

What is an ETL tester? Is it a tester that tests data warehouses? – dzieciou Jun 19 '14 at 12:52
