As all test cases created should be executable by anyone in the company with little or no prior knowledge of testing, then it doesn’t make sense to recruit anyone with any exceptional skills other than being able to click a mouse and operate a keyboard.
1. Does the tester have a certification?
2. Has the tester operated a computer with a mouse AND a keyboard before?
3. Has the tester used a spreadsheet?
If YES to ALL of the above then invite to an interview immediately.
