Is this enough reason to look for another oppurtunity?

Hi guys!

I'm having doubts whether to stay with my current employer or not. I have 1 year and 10 months experience in Java and just this year I got myself Certified. I'm also pursuing a Microsoft Certification for C# windows application.

I wasn't very lucky with my previous jobs. During my first 9 months I was transferring from one employer to another. This is my third job now, this is the longest I've stayed so far(10 months) and I'm planning on leaving after the 12th month.

At first, everything was ok... I was having enough challenge and I felt like I was learning. But now, I am in a maintenance project of which the future is C#/.Net. I'm afraid I would lose my" expertise in Java. The maintenance project I am working on is full of "BS". And though I am learning some things, I am not learning as much as I expected to. The main reason that I want to look for another opportunity is simply, to explore new challenges.

Sorry for taking your time, thanks!

It sounds like you jump ship early and often (slight exaggeration on my part). That doesn't look good on a resume after you've done it a few times.

Have you talked to your manager about it, and let him know that you'd prefer to work on Java projects?

Not yet, would that be a better idea? I'm also hoping to work with a team that does real software development life cycle and not just fix bugs or implement new features(like they want this button to be 2 pixels down). But one can't always get what he wants... Especially from the same company he's complaining about. What would be the good questions to ask or things to point out if I talk to him? I tend to think in my sleep of talking to him and giving an ultimatum (which I know is not a good idea) of some sort. Lolz!
