These days I am in strange situation to make decision about career changing. i need help from your side.
Here is the detail of my career. I am working as a junior SQA engineer since 2 years. But still I don’t know much about it like testing tools, language and procedure of sqa. So I seriously wonder about my career. secondly in future i like to go us. and I don’t know what is the scope of sqa and what pay rat for sqa engineer in USA.
I know little bit java. Now I have opportunity to join dev. Team in same company. should I join it or continue in SQA. I cannot decide it yet. How can I realize my self that where should I go. Please help me if you have any suggestion. Any help will be appreciated. If possible email me at <removed> . Sorry For my bad English.
i like coding but some times i feel stress. and also dont know about sqa scope in the future,
that,s why i am confusing to take any decision. can you please tell me how can i measure myself which path is good for me?
Both have scope for a future. And both have stress. That's why I asked which you like better. Because when you enjoy something, you learn it more and are more excited about your job.

Neither is better. It's a personal preference. You don't need to work much in a field to know what you like. You can even experiment at home. Try to write code for 2 hours. Write down how you feel. What did you like? Dislike? Did the time fly? Then look for errors in a website for 2 hours and do the same thing.

Go on monster.com and search for SQA jobs. That's how to find out the pay rate.
