I am in strange situation these days and need some advice to make decision.
I have been working in Java field from last 5 years and quit my Job 6 months ago due to family reasons and now again looking for job, recently I received an offer for Java Developer but the payrate was too low compare to my earlier position that I had to decline the job. Also I am not able to clear any Senior level position interview so far.
And now I am in confused state and wondering If I could ever make myself progressive in the Java field because I hardly get time to upgrade myself with new technologies and feels lagging behind the crowd, whereas I feel I can be more successful in QA field.
Please advice will it be wise decision to switch to QA with lesser jobs in the market and lesser salary OR continue in Java with lot of stress(Not sure how much stress will be in QA) and being behind the race.
I have been applying for QA positions from last 2 weeks but unable to get any lead so far, I am getting initial calls but when it comes to QA experience (that I don't have much) it doesn't get any further. I see some Junior QA roles but those are really low paid.
