    Well 3yrs seniority is something but witch one do you think will advance you further in you career. It’s your choice all I’m saying is look at the long term possibilities from all aspects.

    You must have impressed your employer to be offered a better position. I would take up the challenge if I were you. It is kind of boring doing the same thing year in year out. Good trying. Nothing venture nothing gain.

    Read the job description of a “Business Analyst”.

    If you like doing that job compared to your job as a software tested, then go ahead – be a Business Analyst.

    Have a nice day !

    depends if you know anything about being a business analyst. they sound like radically different jobs. i would think a business analyst must make critical decisions every hour of the day without the benefeit of yahoo answers so if you arent sure then you may not be ready.

    get all the info you can about the new job including ALL the daily responsibilities and see how many are even remotely familiar to you .if it seems alien then you are out of your element. training or no training it may not be for you. but only you can decide that.

    but if you turn down a an opportunity you may not get offered another. its a tough call

    Good luck
