Hi, I know this is pretty late answer but neverthless could be useful to someone..
I have been in the same boat with 4 years in Manual testing and after returning from ML, I somehow managed to learn Automation but by that time my experience had been more than 6 years and I get calls for automation but only as an Automation lead meaning i requires very deep knowledge of Automation which is not just possible by learning.. after multiple attempts.. I had got back to manual and with knowledge of Automation got a Manual Test Lead job finally.
