Manual Software Test Analyst jobs prospects in Australia

Recommended Posts

HI all, I have been in Melbourne now for just over 10 months and working as a contract Manual Software Test Analyst.  We have a 190 PR with Vic Sponsorship and our 2 year agreement with Vic will end next year May.  

Recently I found myself without a job and the Manual Testing job market here in Melbourne is very slow.  Doing self study on selenium, however even if I get that under my name, I would still need 2 years experience as an automation tester before landing a job.  Automation testing jobs are very popular here, for 10 jobs posted 1 might be a manual tester position.

So, my question to other Manual tester doing contract work, where in Australia would be the best place to settle, knowing that there is a huge demand for Manual testers?

I have monitored Seek and noticed Brisbane and Sydney has a lot and Adelaide and Canberra mainly want Aus citizenship of baseline clearance......

Thank you in advance.
