python – Career advice for a Software Engineering Fresher

I’m writing this post to seek some career advise as I’ve been feeling lost and lack of motivation for a while now. I don’t know where to start and just get to issue I’m facing. I was hired as a fresher by a well known Multinational Company for the role of Software Development Engineer. Considering the reputation of the brand in the market I expected to learn a lot during my tenure but when the project was assigned to us and all the freshers were assigned their respective roles, the majority of the work I was given dealt with End-to-end automation and Software testing. I was disappointed at first but decided to stick to the role to learn whatever I could in the project and request for a switch of work assignment down the line.
It’s been an year and the management has refused to change the work assignment. I’ve finally come to my senses that I can’t hurt my career anymore and I need to do something in order to switch my company and my role asap. I’ve been browsing through every possible material online in order to get started somewhere, but the more I research the more stuck and hopeless I feel.

I really need some useful advice at this point as I’m eager to change and work on myself but I don’t know how to get started.

Thank you in advance for any help
