[Need suggestions/ guidance from testing experts]


I have a question or you can say need suggestion from experienced people like you guys and hoping that it would help me decide whether I am thinking in the right direction ?

I am an experienced testing guy having 15 years of experience. I have worked as manual, automation, Lead and Test Manager. My current status from the last 2.5 years is working as Test Manager. I am just tired now of doing testing and want some change in my profession. Since the last two months I had tried searching for different fields that can be taken or worked upon apart from testing. On top of them was the azure Devops since it is in great demand these days also it is a bit different. But I am unable to decide which certification should i go for?

Though I am managing the manual and Automation testers and I had thought of switching back to automation but its kind of boring or you can say looks repeated task to me. There is one other reason is that I want to secure my future as well. For how long I can work as Manager and in how many firms I can work?? That is also a big question that i usually ask myself.

I am very hopeful that you guys will help me in deciding what path should i take? Am i thinking right or is it something that I overthink? But one thing is for sure. Testing sounds boring to me now and I definitely want change.

Best Regards,

My first QA role was mobile, 15 years ago. I then jumped into a Desktop & SaaS company which shifted into cloud a bit. Then moved back to embedded, then into IOT embedded, and now back on Desktops with mobile (again). In all that time, I’ve probably only had to suffer under Selenium for about a year, and it’s enough to make me feel sorry for anyone who had to test web apps for any amount of time at all.
