I have only talked to the recruiter so far and he seems legit, but recruiters always try to make a job sound fluffy. I literally only applied because im going to be on unemployment and I know I have to apply once a week at least. However, I am in the process of moving out and it would be nice to have a job but well..I dont NEED the money right now, I have a lot saved up. I was teaching myself java right now and was planning on applying for java interns or qa automation jobs. I feel I shouldnt throw myself into a job because I meet the requirements, but the one big thing I can see gaining from this job is the experience. If i am the only qa guy, ill learn so much, but I am also concerned on who will teach me if I am the only qa guy..Please offer any advice on the companies or situation

    "I am unemployed right now and this job would pay the same amount" Pay the same amount as what? Oct 23 '13 at 11:58

    Hi @Jacob-Hong - I'm closing this question as it's really not on topic for the site, for a number of reasons. meta.sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/241/… I appreciate your worries about trying to figure out if a role will be good for you or not, can I suggest you try posting your question in chat to get feedback? That's a more suitable location for discussion. Otherwise, you might find workplace.stackexchange.com is worth trying for this one?

I don't want to be a qa lead really, I planned on moving into development within the next 5 years.

If you don't want to be a QA Lead, then don't take a job which explicitly states that it will become a QA Lead.

If you want to be a Developer, look for Developer jobs.
