Default How long should i work here?

Hi guys

I've worked in a local trading company for 3 years as a IT executive with a local diploma. Because of the working hours, there is no way i can do any further studies.

Knowing that i have no chance to promote to the next position, would it be better if i look for another job right now or stay to rack up more exprience before moving on.

btw, my annual income is 32K

Tough questions. Working and studying is tough.
Maybe someone who has went thorough will be in better position to advise.

With 3 years of experience, you can earn about 40 - 50k per annum working for local SME.

Ask yourself this: does additional experience that you get by staying longer have any market value?

I'm wondering, how many years of experience would most potential employers prefer? my scope of work are mostly network, system and customer service based.

What kind of potential employer that you prefer: MNC / SME, SI / end-user environment?

It is always easier to jump ship from MNC -> SME and from SI -> end-user. Typically 5 years of relevant experience is required for senior position.

In a hard market, some employers will not consider anything with less than 2 years. They are swamp with good fit candidates, and those who change jobs frequently will be disadvantage

In a good market, those who job hop will get higher pay and faster rotations. Employers may have not much selections so they will just take the candidate that fits and has the qualities that they want.
