Career transformation from Web Development to Automation testing

iamanands
Hi,

I'm working in a local IT firm as Junior software engineer(Web application development) and currently i'm getting trained on web technologies like HTML5 , CSS & Javascript. More specifically AngularJS based SPAs(Single Page Application). My passion is however, into testing, to be specific in Automation testing. Is it possible to get into testing domain after gaining 1 or 2 years of experience from this company?. I will also do the testing part of the developed application, once I get into live projects in this firm, since it is a developing company.

Will I be considered as a fresher if I join tester position which cuts my salary down ?

I can get QTP or Selenium certification from NIIT or any other providers, and get training in the weekends. Will that help actually?

Please guide me.

Regards,

Anand

      Certification does not make you a veteran. It just tells people that you are well-studied and you may be able to do the job, but it is not a substitute for experience.
