Cool! Option 2 & 3 seem more interesting to me, of course the payment also would be a major factor.

I think I'm lucky to get jobs in this bad economy but I guess it's not really that difficult to get a job in my country because most of the companies don't expect good developing skills, as long as you can come out with something working and they can sell, quality doesn't matter much here. And they might be more interested in whether you can work late and on weekend. A bit out of the topics.
Nevertheless, they pay almost same, the 2) and 3) jobs also sounds more interesting for me. But honestly, local software companies here don't really care much about project management, planning, analysis & design. You can find the codes in the whole project have no comment at all, No documentation, and there could be a J2EE project, only MVC is the design pattern you can find they are applying.
I'm thinking to move to IT implementation and project management field in future. I'm thinking if I should gain more experience with the job 1) 1st by supporting the project developed in an international company.
Mnnn....curious.....may I ask my friends here from all those countries that with longer software development history and more advanced technology. Are there most of the softwares developed by your local software house are planned and designed professionally or there also could be situation like "Just Do It! change and documentation when problem occurs" :roll:
Treat it as a sharing of developers' life in every corners in this world.....

2 & 3 seems like specialist jobs.
1 seems like a support engineer/developer job.
Based on your career goal, I think you prefer option 1. But you need some encouragement. How proactive or outgoing are you? Is it a diversify company? Some companies despite sheltering under the diversify umbrella for P.R./P.C. actually homogenous with an accent of minority here and there. Is this company documentation well organize? Have you seen them? Where is your immediate manager base? Is the mangager have an open office door policy or practice by himself? Where is the IS team locate? What kind of operation mold is the company operated on? Did you like the team even for the brief periods interface previously? There are times you will discover the problem is not in the coding but in the management or in the operation flow chart. You need them to back you up so you could talk with your manager and recommend changed. You will work with cross departments and function as you gain more knowledge. This job requires multidimensional individual.
