So its been a year since I have been studying Python, and just recently I started picking up web driver. It was a long journey, and I am still a pretty noob, but I finally understand how to use it lol. I have made some tests to automate my manual testing, which took a long time, but worked!
I am wondering what kind of tests QA automation engineers make daily. I made simple ones like logging in, creating a ticket, creating alarm, verifying other stuff. I can see it getting complex, but in general, am I ready to apply for an automation job? I don't want to look like a fool and say "hey I made a script to login!", but I honestly have no idea what kind of work an automation engineer would do. I can only assume it's similar to what I am doing now, and that it seems pretty basic.
My goal was to learn some Selenium, so that I have SOME automation experience, and put that on my resume. I feel I can automate a lot of what I do with WebDriver, but it wouldn't exactly be efficient, just mainly good for experience. Do any automation jobs not mind finding a novice that they can teach? Or will most require someone who can do everything right off the bat. Would be nice if a QA automation engineer can respond with what kind of tests they write and what level they would require, thanks!
