A company was hiring several developers. Among them a embedded software developer position with some very strict requirements (like 10+ years of experience with C) that I in no way qualify for (I'm a web developer, but embedded programming has been a hobby of mine for years)
I applied for a web developer position at the company, and was called in for an interview.
At the interview the guy interviewing me starts talking about embedded programming, and I start wondering if maybe I put it on my application as a "hobby" and that's why he mentions it.
So we discussed embedded programming for almost an hour - then he tells me they'll get back to me.
Very confused I went home and checked my application - but there is no mention of embedded programming.
2 days later I receive an offer for a embedded developer position with a salary way above the range mentioned for the web-developer position.
Though it's quite likely that they mixed my application up with someone elses, could accepting the offer (for a position I didn't apply for) land me in any trouble?
