I hate you
Anyway, perhaps you could work on some libraries, projects or other stuff in your free time to build up a portfolio, you'll gain experience and have something to show off.
JayBl286dThanks for your feedback! Yeah, I’ve built a website using the Bulma CSS framework and created a blog using Jekyll. It does have it’s advantages of being a tester, I’ll keep on applying! 👍
Godisalie148886dWell as a QA engineer, if your job contains no coding you're doing something wrong. Why don't you start automating your regression suite? Set up api tests, UI tests, build up a central reporting system, start working with the shit ton of data you generate, create automated risk and impact predictions on commit and become the expert in your company when it comes to how your application works and I guarantee you, in less than a year you'll have a resume with which recruiters will hunt you down for junior or professional position. If you still want to leave, what in my experience are few after they tasted what QA can be if done right.
