I have big confusion about career growth. Because, initially I started my career in small scale industry with low pay. I cannot support my family on this salary due to current economic conditions.

However my current industry is working with existing technologies, they are not ready to work with recent technologies and I am eager to work recent technologies. Because of this, I couldn't do any project in recent technologies.

this could be affect my carrier in feature job change. if I quit job later.?

so, I planned to quit my job soon. Did I make the right decision here?

Suggest me.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Workplace would be a better SE though even there this is still highly subjective, IMO. – JB King Aug 6 '13 at 17:52
I closed this because it is too opinion based. If you decide to reword to be more objective, please post on workplace as that is the better fit as @JBKing noted – Jeanne Boyarsky Aug 7 '13 at 0:02

The answer is very industry or sector specific, but I think the answer is that it will not hurt your long-term prospects provided that you:

  • Left your old jobs for a good reasons, i.e., more money, new challenges, etc.
  • Exited your prior positions professionally, i.e., gave ample notice, tried to complete projects, made yourself available if your former colleagues had questions about your work
