Hope everyone is doing fine! I've been working for about 6 months as a Java Dev. Recently I applied for a Jr Java position at another company and I think everything went well, because I passed some interviews and tests (Monday I'll have my final interview) but when they explained me a bit about the process, they basically described the position for a QA automation, I've been doing some research and it actually doesn't look bad at all. Now my real question is, if I applied for the Jr Java position but they offered me the automation position (where they were looking for people with 1+ years of experience) should I consider that as good thing? Or that I wasn't good enough for the Jr Dev position?
My apologies, to what forum did you love the question? (As well for future reference )
I would like to be a developer, but maybe on the other forum I can expand more my concern.
I just realized I made something very dumb - my apologies... To answer your question is that I would like to be a developer, but I've been applying for a Java dev position and of course because of my experience (or because I miss the technical test) they decline my application. It's actually very simple math, I just need to practice more, but the thing is that with this company that it's offering me a position as a QA Automation when I applied for a Java dev, I considered it as beign rejected for the position because I didn't met the expectations.
Well then you need to ask yourself. If you really want to be a developer, are you OK with a QA/Testing job?
In case you do take up this profile for now, what would happen in the next interview? Would they say you have only testing experience, so thats what we are willing to offer.
