I FUCKING DID IT.
TODAY, I AM HAPPY AS FUCK.
You all know how much I used to rant about my shitty manager and the shitty QA job.
And with all the lay offs at work, I was worried more and more everyday.
I never liked coding and automation is killing QA jobs.
I always leaned towards business and tech.
I really worked hard and gained lot of product knowledge of the one I was working on.
Last month there was an opening in Product Management team.
I thought of trying luck. I had good contacts and through their reference got an interview scheduled.
This evening, I got the confirmation call that I am selected.
I am fucking out of that soul sucking QA job and now will be a Product Manager of one of Oracle's 10 million dollar kernel products.
My happiness today knows no bounds.
Not only I am out of that toxic manager but this career switch has countless perks waiting for me. The more I count the less they are.
I once dreamt of posting this story and today it is reality.
Feels good :)
Edit: Really sorry for being away and not interacting with you all as I was busy with this thing. I am here now with you all.90
