In may I graduated with a Bachelors in EE. I have been working at my current job since then as an electrical engineer. I work for a smaller company and don't find the work i am doing interesting. Also from conversations with my friends who also graduated with me i think I would be happier at a larger company. So i have two questions. 1. Will it look bad to employers that i am switching jobs after 9 months. 2. How do i look for a job if i am working. Take vacation days for interviews? Also I don't want prospective employers contacting my current job because I don't want them to know I am looking elsewhere. Will it look bad to say no to contacting my current employer on a job app?
