How far backwards am I expected to go, job wise, after time off?
I left a QA Mgr position in July 2016, attended college for two years, then took care of an ill relative for two years. My experience prior to resigning was:
> QA to Sr QA - 2005-2011
> QA Lead - 2011-2013
> QA Supervisor/Manager - 2013-2016
I have a degree in Web & Software Development and am close to completing a B.S. in Management & Organizational Leadership - but I need a job to be able to pay for it.
I’ve kept current with training and trends in IT, and my goal is a QA Lead role without managing people.
Given the above, are my expectations too high?
