I'm working in a very small startup as a web developer since last 8 months, . I’ve learned web skills quite well. Now they are switching their backend to another technology, which I don’t know.
I don’t have any problem in learning the new technology and continuing things, but at the same time I'm concerned about salary too. My current salary is just the amount needed for my monthly living. But I need some more money than that so that I don't have to think twice while buying clothes or eating well.
My plan is to switch company after 4 months as I would be having 1 year's experience. But than, I won't be able to state to interviewer that I've worked for 1 year in a particular field. They would not consider my 1 year experience as really 1 year. I feel a little worry about that. Also, I don't want to be a 'trainee' once again. But again, the good thing in learning the new technology, is that I can learn new skill in a wide spread technology.
So, I'm really confused. Moreover, I'm 25 years old. Most of my batch mates are already earning more than me, because somehow money was their first choice.
Would it be wise to learn new skills till one more year and switch later? Or should I change it right now and have a better salary? How can I make this choice?
