How to shift from Manual Testing to Java Development?
I have 6 years of experience in Manual Testing. I have completed core java course and I want to shift to Java Development. In my organization, they have stopped internal movements and interviews due to lack of projects. So, Please advice me how to move further.Posted in: #Software Testing
You haven't told us what are the problems you are facing. If your company does not offer you a role as a developer, you should look at other companies.
There is no future for anyone in your current organisation. You are going to look elsewhere for job opportunities anyway. However, when you are looking for a new job, it's better to go with your existing experience. It will be easier for you to find a manual testing job.
For Java developer job you can try your luck by applying to the companies that are recruiting Java developers.
Think of Selenium based testing, and writing automated test cases for Android via the Instrumentation path. It will open a plethora of possibilities for you. Focus on either of the approaches and learn to be good at that.
Right! As @Prasad Ajinkya said, it's better to opt for automation testing where you could make use of you Java programming knowledge.
