Question: I want to do QA automation, but I have zero QA experience
Here is what I recommend:
- Learn manual testing first
- Get hired
- ONCE you are hired, learn QA automation
Beginner QA testers should concentrate on ONE task: GETTING HIRED.
Find a job first. Once you are employed, there will be a lot of opportunities within the company and, if you want, one way or another you’ll learn QA automation BEING PAID for that.
Manual QA testers are hired without experience for Junior positions.
QA automators are hired only with experience, because it doesn’t make sense to do otherwise. See my relevant post.
