I am currently a QA lead at Nike, leading a team of 6 in manual and automated testing efforts.

Prior to Nike, I was at Webtrends for 2+ years, and prior to that was at Microsoft for 13 years. During my time at Microsoft my responsibilities evolved from test planning and manual testing on various projects to --> writing automation and overseeing manual testing efforts from vendors to --> Developing automation tools and processes for the Windows Live organization including a web UI automation framework and a test result reporting platform as well as other smaller tools. At Webtrends I was the most senior automation engineer and was responsible for creating and executing on an automation plan for the company. We went from no automation to significant coverage via UI automation for both of our legacy products as well as near 100% web service automation for one of our new products. In addition, I created performance test suites for 3 products and was involved in hiring 5 additional developers in test for the company.

comment Proxy setting for JMeter
In your browser with the proxy set up the way you show, are you able to navigate to google.com? Also, you may want to tell Firefox to use the system proxy settings, and change those, that way many other browsers and applications will automatically use those settings.

comment ElementNotVisibleException on Mac, not Windows
A Webdriver defect on one platform and not another is definitely not unheard of. One other possibility is that the web site itself has some forked logic for different browsers. Have you opened up the developer tools on a Mac and made sure that in the DOM, the identifier you are using in your code would still be valid?

comment How to make good impression as a functional tester in front of recruiter/employer
I agree with all of these points. As a hiring manager, number 3 has been one of the most important ones for me. It is an instant no hire when i ask someone a question and they tell me an answer that is clearly incorrect, but act confident about it. I would rather have someone tell me that they don't know something, or aren't sure about something then have them try to pretend like they know.

Does the url you are trying to hit require authentication? Does it prompt for a user/password if you hit it directly within your browser in an incognito window?

comment How to click on Canvas element?
What browser and version of web driver are you using? I have extensively automated a canvas application and using the selenium click method has worked just fine. I did have issues doing more complex actions (like drag and drop) using actionBuilder and had to instead create javascript to create and execute events. I could share that if interested, but it does not answer your question.

comment want to scroll down page/form using selenium webdriver
Are you trying to find a particular element by scrolling, or you just want to arbitrarily scroll down? If you want to scroll in order to view a specific element, you can use the scrollIntoView or scrollTop javascript methods.

comment Does cascading tests violate the “one assertion per Test” principle?
To expand a little bit, you may also want to move register into a class setup, so you register a single user and re-use that for multiple tests. In addition, you could even create a method that will register a user via direct http requests, or inserts into a database to speed things up when that is not the primary thing you are validating, but it is a pre-requisite for other validations to occur.
