I am a Software Engineer with 5.5 years of experience in .net. To be frank i was never a great coder. I never understood technology. I am unemployed since 6 months now. My previous company asked me to resign coz they thought they were wasting money on me...:(. I asked all my friends for so many years to help me with career choice as i was always confused. But i landed up doing coding.
But now i want to change my career either to HR or Software Testing. Please help me.How to start is a big question for me..
Sainath's Advice on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 :
In my opinion you can make a start in testing rather than HR. Since you already have a development background, it makes better sense to try your hand in something related. Moreover, not everyone is suited for coding, but you can try your hand at manual testing to start with.
Please take up a course in testing and start exploring employment opportunities in the area once the course is completed. It is not advisable to stay unemployed for too long as it will become progressively difficult to find a job the more you delay.

Thank you so much. Can i ask for one more favour? If you can advice me some good institute to take up software testing course. And if i switch to software testing will my past experience be counted or i will be treated as fresher?
