One of the answers here already covered India. I would like to add another region here. The North Indian IT Hub . Pune in Maharashtra.
The Testing Trend:
Pune has an abundant of IT and Manufacturing Companies . Speaking for IT services company, Testing tools like "Selenium" , "Appium", "Cucumber" and very much in demand.
Test Scripting languages:
The favorite is Python . Everybody wants to work with it . There are a lot Automation tools supporting Python nowadays like selenium , Squish. Python jobs are coming up everyday in heaps.
With the advent of embedded devices, even industries want good testers and Pune has got a lot of brands that demand good testing candidates. And the skills they are looking for are :
Python , Device Protocols like CAN , Profibus.
Testing modules like unittest, Pytest (For python).
Banks are the best package providers for the right candidate. A fitting tester needs to be a mix of a lot of skills (Jack of many). A few are:
SQL, Python , Java, ORACLE, PL-SQL, and DEVOPS tools.
It's cut throat competition. No one needs a master of all here.
