This is so tremendously on target. I do not apply for positions that require specific QA tool experience, because I know their buzzword-matching-grinder will reject me. "Why even bother?"

Sometimes I think the purpose of HR is to reject qualified people as "not qualified." Nobody will ever know that anything went wrong, because that excellent applicant quietly goes elsewhere.

Congratulations on the new position.

It's not uncommon for tech writers, especially those who are former developers or former testers or former business analysts, to take on QA naturally.

The key to attracting someone with both sets of skills is not to ask for tool expertise. I can't tell you how many positions I would be really good at came with a requirement to have used one of several specific QA and testing tools. All they needed was someone to do functional testing, not someone to create and run automated tests.

I'm afraid that's not much help with the title.
