What should I do for my career growth as a software tester? I am working as a manual tester and I am not interested in manual testing. Should I switch to development or automation?

Someone please help me with this question.

Testing is a niche where people with specific skills are very much in demand. Professional with command over automation tools and a tester mindset are highly paid in the industry and have a good chance of shifting their role towards management.

I understand that being new in the field can be intimidating and you would be facing some dilemma as to move in which direction. I would suggest that you try some courses in software testing and see how you find them, you can try some development related courses too and see for yourself what you like more.
