Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It depends if you want to stay in the same area or not. Improving skills such as communication, working with people and experience in different industries can help. If you want to stay in testing, perhaps a testing manager could be the way to go? The pay is usually more and you get to stay in your testing area. If not, you could move into development or support or whatever takes your fancy.
Good luck!
