I'm a BE Graduate in Computer Science. My career so far - First role was as Researcher Data Analyst in a database company, worked there for 10 months until March 2018.

After that (April 2018) I took a role as a Software Test Engineer for a startup and have been there ever since (10 months). Now I've received an attractive offer to be a Test Lead Engineer at a large MNC.

However the offer comes with a 6 month probation period where I can be let go at any point. Is this concerning? Could this be down to my experience being measured only in months rather than years?

  • It is common in many companies to put their new employees under probation. FYI, even experienced candidates are put in probation period too. Do well in your new job and ensure that your visibility is more. In some cases, probation period would be brought down too; – WonderWoman Jan 4 at 11:26

    what the heck is a BE ? – Fattie Jan 4 at 11:48
  • @Fattie Bachelor's of Engineering degree probably. – user1666620 Jan 4 at 13:28

6 months probation is pretty standard in most companies. Don't sweat it, either you'll be good enough or you won't. Just ask for feedback regularly to see if your supervisors are happy with your performance and act on any critiques you receive.
