Simon Prior is a co-host of the Testing Peers podcast (https://testingpeers.com/) as well as an advocate for bridging the gap between academia and industry. Having been a university professor myself, I found we had quite a lot in common! Simon Prior is a senior test manager at Easy Jet, with many years of experience in testing and management. Not only that, but he helps run a meetup group, Ministry of Testing Buckinghamshire and started the hashtag, #MakeATester to increase awareness outside the testing bubble about careers in our field. In this episode, we discussed how to form more people in STEM with the skills needed to become great testers and how to make our profession more well known to those who have yet to graduate from university!
