I am having almost 7 years of experience as a developer and would like to know if I can move to testing without having any experience in it except for Unit testing ofcourse.
My reasons for moving to testing are as follows:
1) I was stuck in a project for 4 years which had technologies like COBOL, SQL, Unix. I work in an MNC and it was really difficult to shift to anything else.
2) I worked in digital technologies like apigee, wso2, drupal7 for 2 years but couldn't learn anything properly.
3) I am trying to learn new technologies like React.js so that I can make a move to UI development but I feel I don't have much interest in coding.
As I am planning to move to Canada, I had to leave my job hence taking this opportunity to do something which will interest me and help me in future. So, thought of taking up Software Testing.
I want to know,
1) If I will be able to make a move to Software Testing. 2) If I will be able to get a job in Canada without having any experience in testing. 3) If yes, then how should I go about preparing myself for the interviews so that I can crack it and get a job for sure.
