Quality control technicians test materials before, during, and after production to measure the characteristics of materials and ensure that they conform to specifications.
So if you want to be a quality technician like I am, then you have to first talk to people in that dept to find out exactly what they do. No matter what job you are performing currently.
Take the initiative to teach yourself spreadsheets,charts of before and after test, things like that. Do the extra work of showing on a spreadsheet what the product measures with each test performed.
So you might have 5 test on 1 product with 1 spreadsheet with 5 tabs and each tab will have it's own chart showing the test results.
Get good at this then show your testing results to the Quality supervisor. They love to talk about this analytical procedure.
You have to show results and initiative you have created to draw attention to yourself.
Let them know you are interested in Quality and keep showing them your skills.
Do not wait for someone to teach you, teach yourself with research.
Also they will consider you more if you would take ASQ Quality Technician training that is certified. It does not take long.
A 2 week class I thing and you may be able to do it online.
Hope I helped.
