I have been a tester for an eCommerce company startup in the travel business, doing mostly Manuel testing which I found quite boring. Over the last 8 months (my first job as a QA) and over these 8 month I have been warned once that I need to improve or I will be let go, which I did.
Yesterday I was notified that my performance had gotten very bad again which surprised me because I was told I was doing good up to a month a go and wasn't given any feedback to indicate that I am getting worse.
I have my doubts about the validity of that since there was no warning + the company just went into it's second round of fundraising and has been removing a lot of people over past month. 6 out of the 27 workers to be exact.
I have been quite shaken by the situation because I take my job very much to heart and am sorry to say that it hurt my confidence in my testing skills.
So now that I have explained the situation to my question.
Should I try to find another job in QA or call it a day with this profession or am I overreacting and just taking this failure a bit too much to heart? I feel like I know the answer to this but I wanted to hear from people with more experience than I do.
