So I applied to MS on both software dev role and manager role because I have done a lot of development before and I have done management as well. I am curious how I can explain the reason and also show that one is not second fiddle so to speak to the other when asked by an interviewer who asks me that question? I would prefer manager but I do want to get my foot in the door as well and grow into that role if software dev is the route to go. Not sure if being honest about that is good?
