Prior to me starting, the company that I work at was acquired by a very BIG DEAL of a company, which is what attracted me to it in the first place.
This is my first job out of uni and I have been here for around 10 months.
However, the future of my sector of the business is uncertain, with selling or spinning off and possible redundancies. Furthermore, my sector within that sector isn't exactly being inundated with work.
I have just finished one very good, modern project, but my next project is up in the air and will likely be support of legacy systems. Having already been exposed to one such legacy system, I don't really look forward to the prospect considering the huge debt that was in the one I worked with. While this may sound entitled, I have gotten invested in some modern frameworks over the past year, and I don't want to consign my self to irrelevancy.
It seems like this situation is not going to work out well for me. I am wondering if it is too soon to start looking for a new job and if not, how can I go about that without burning bridges?
I also want to avoid recruiters looking negatively at me because I spent less than a year in my first position.
