Hi all, I need some job advice. Ia m currently working as a developer using PHP's and mySQL. The place I work at is a small start up, I am a graduate with a bachelor in computer science, post graduate applied information technology degree, and a SCJP. I am finding it hard to keep doing this job. I really dont want to be doing Web development with PHP's and mySQL. I have been there a week and I already want to quit. I work alone ina room, and I am looking for a more collabrative team enviroment. The pay is no good, and I get no Benifits, sock options, Nil... I understand its better to have some experince than none, but i dont think i can do this for any much longer. Any advice? Should I work and look for a job, or just Quit and then start looking fulltime? It can be time consuming trying to do both work and job hunting at the same time. Regards
Hi Don't quit your current job,right now the job market is so tight that its very difficult to get a job even for the experienced programmers and judging from your posting i think you are a newbie to the software field,so consider yourself very lucky that you do have a job.So my advice is don't make a disastrous move of quitting your current job,if at all you want to change jobs then first get other job in some stable company and then quit the current one.Best of luck.

How hard is it to job hunt and work? Employers see you as more desirable when you are employed. Keep the job and send out resumes to jobs you want to do. Since you have a job, you can be a little bit picky about the next job you are going to accept.
