Just a few more questions for you. If you accept the offer, will your salary increase? Do you have a college degree?
And finally, in your 1+ year of experience, how many web applications have "you" created? And how many web applications have "you" worked on which were created by someone else?
Jimmy Clark wrote:Thank you. Two more final questions for you.
When you interviewed for the QA position, did it sound interesting to you?
Do you currently enjoy working with your current company and like creating web applications?
Jimmy Clark wrote:Based on the information that you have provided, I suggest that you do not accept the QA position and keep working as a PHP programmer.
Decline the offer and tell them that you want a 20% increase in the salary they offered. If they accept, then take the QA position.
In terms of career development, you should start looking at graduate programs in Information Systems or Business Administration.
Also consider PMP certification as this will enable you to more easily shift into business/management position in the future.
And finally, your written English is a bit rough, consider taking a couple of courses in English (with focus on writing and grammar.)
