"When hiring QA managers, employers are looking for candidates with the technical background and management skills to assist the QA department at a high level. In an interview, be ready to answer typical testing questions as well as speak to your leadership experience and project management abilities. Come prepared to discuss how you would set quality standards, execute testing planning, and ensure that teams meet deadlines."
Do you believe automation is more important than manual QA?
I won't believe, both r important. we are doing documentation and writing test cases manually, then we are converting manual test cases into test scripts and executing them. It is the process of testing life cycle.
Your question is somewhat vague. When it comes to service tests then automation is more important; When it comes to graphic design manual is more important. when it comes to regression tests automation is more important than manual testing.
