You should have provided some background information about yourself so that we could answer this properly. Generally speaking, Selenium is going to be in use for foreseeable future for automation testing. It'll take a QA professional at least 2-4 years of experience so that they can be desired by the industry.

All that said, no professional should let only one software tool or technology decide their career. You need to approach the entire software automation domain and not just one testing tool.

Your second sentence isn't very clear - Selenium is best or not? Can you be more specific about your question?

PS: Describing questions properly will help you get better responses.

Hi, I have worked in IT as a Business Analyst for 5 years. In this duration, I have learnt manual testing and have some hands -on in SQL. I have a career gap of 3 years and I want to restart my career. So, I want to learn automation testing using Selenium as a tool. Kindly advice if this will help my career grow or I should try my hands in SQL.

@Tanuja Singh - If the main reason for the gap is marriage, then it's justifiable without much efforts. If there's some other reason, you will have to justify it to the recruiters. 

I'll recommend opting for a certification in testing. ISTQB certification would be a good start and you can then upgrade your skills to automation testing using Selenium. I'll strongly recommend doing a survey of the jobs available in your locality which you can apply to and find out which software automation tool is in demand. Selenium is popular but not every project will use it. 

SQL itself is learnable through self study. However, you will have to keep in mind the job opportunities that you will have after acquiring the new skills. Will SQL only fetch you good job opportunities? I doubt. You will have to equip yourself with more skills and knowledge of tools. Which skill you acquire should determine the kind of job opportunities you get. My recommendation would be to follow software QA and learning Selenium would be a step in the right direction. I hope it helps.
