How to Switch from Manual Testing to Test Automation

There are lot of people who have Manual testing experience. When there is a walk-in interview you could see thousands of people with more experience than you have. So you have to differentiate yourself from others by adding extra skills to your resume. In a world where the consumer expects fast-paced delivery, and solutions must support a myriad of devices and platforms, manual testing simply doesn’t enable the delivery pace that the market expects.

It takes months/years to lay the groundwork.
