Am I in the right direction for a QA job?.. Help..
I have posted a question previously and got encouraging reply.I would like to ask for another help. I am in H1 visa and submitting my resume to major job sites (dice, monster, hotjob etc). I have 5 years of experience in manual testing. I don't have any experience in automated testing but have taken the trainings and ready to use them. I am not getting any interview call. It's now 6 months and I am so frustrated here in US without a job. can anyone help me how to proceed so that I can get a job?

It's rather hard for us to tell why you are not getting interviews.
Have you had someone else look over your postings, to ensure that everything is spelled correctly, has proper grammar, and in general looks good? On the jobs sites, you are competing with many, many others, so you have to make sure everything is exactly correct.
Are you posting a required salary?
If yes - have you considered lowering your expectations, on the chance that you are asking for too much?
If no - have you considered including salary requirements? for some employers, that would help.
Are you working with an employment agency, or trying to do it on your own?
Do you have friends in the business? Most often, the people I hire are referred internally, not by searching external job sites.
