@mazhar shaikh - Continue working in the same job and look for opportunities in software testing. Software testing has vast number of jobs available in Indian IT and you should upgrade your skills-set with Automation.

We've an experience QA guy who can guide you - @saandeep sreerambatla . Over to you, Saandeep!

Thank u so much... But as manual tester i feel very low. As every single person with normal graduation doing testing certification and started  a job.... I did. B.E... I didnt find any difference... Why?  should i get any benefit with B. E electronic & comm + Software Testing.

Ask all the similar questions here. Avoid starting new discussion on the same topic. 

Software Qa is slowly dying is all talk around the globe, but whats dying is manual testing. 

Automation will always be there , the only issue here is there are so many automation tools available in the market so you need to learn quite a few of those tools. One is the latest one is Mabl UI , automation tool based on artificial intelligence. 

Performance testing will also , will always be there.

@saandeep sreerambatla - I believe software manual testing ain't going anywhere for the next 10 years for sure. But that too, depends upon the advancement of AI. We still need manual testing before we could automate things. 

At CrazyEngineers, we rely heavily on manual testing (random testing, to be specific) in order to find bugs and automate only the most common ones. 

You are right - there are plenty of tools in the market and it's difficult to choose. Will definitely explore Mabl UI.

Ok... I want switch my manual testing... I want to do testing which is similar to my field electronics n telecommunication.. Suggest some testing course which is common for software n hardware... I want to learn testing.... Unique and Ever green tool

@Kaustubh Katdare what i mean is will you just hire a full time QA as a manual tester? No correct?

So thats what I was saying about, we either need expertise in Automation or performance and yes manual testing will always be there :)

@mazhar shaikh - I think your questions were answered. If you find the QA field boring, you'll have to look for a field that's more interesting to you. I believe it was your own choice to switch to Software QA and my recommendation is that you should stick to it until you find out something that you are sure you wish to do. 

If you really wish to switch your career, I'll recommend choosing a VLSI or related course from CDAC. That's the only way you could get trained and have a way to change your career path.
