Cut the crap! Whatever be the debate but still Manual testers are finding it hard to stay relevant in today’s job market. Why? A simple argument – ‘Manual Testing’ & ‘Manual Testers’ are two separate entities. Agree that ‘Manual Testing is NOT dead’, and it never will. But what about Manual Testers?
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. The rise of automated testing in response to this has been rapid. Are you attempting a switch from Manual Testing to Test Automation? This transition won’t come overnight. It takes months/years to lay the groundwork.
