    Considering the very grim phase in respect of employment - oppurtunity, it is not advisable to change your job by tendering resignation. You should look for other ways so that you get a relocation of the job within your organisation. It would be better to have a negotiation with the head of the personnel department and apprise them of your intention of continuation of a job in the Network - field. It is quite possible that you may be interviewed where a team of specialist of Networking along with the personnel - representative would like to your inner potential in this area and if they find you suitable for the job in the same field, your job can be changed. The other way would be to have a certification in the Networking - system and after successful completion of the said certification, you may look out open advertisements displayed in the leading newspaper and apply for it. Your resume should be attractive enough to impress the employer enabling you feel r the easy entry in the jobs in the area of Networking - engineering.

    At the present position of the market, I never advise you to change the field that to into the networking Area. You can try for a better post in the line of your present working in other companies wherein you will have more chances to get the better position and better perks.
    If you want to have a shift in networking field you have to compete with the already qualified and experienced people wherein you have your own limitations. This move will make your chances reduced. So better continue in the present line only.
    If still, you feel to have a shift try to pursue a diploma or PG diploma in networking before applying for those posts.

    As your a B Tech graduate you have ample jobs to enter. But if your very keen in developing your future as network engineer then its better you enroll in networking courses. At the same time you can search for networking jobs and along with it you can join network course. You can do this only if you have basic networking knowledge i,e about LAN,WAN,MAN or else its better you first join any network course and then search for a job.
    Now about the environment you mentioned will depend on the individual how they are with their co- workers. Just by changing the job you will not have a better environment but the condition may be wore than this. If your comfortable with your present job beside your working environment, then I would suggest you to be in the same organisation and complete networking course which you prefer and then try for another job for better designation.

    For network engineering, following short-term courses may be useful:-
    (a) Diploma in Computer Application and Network Administration
    (b) Certificate Course in Network Administration
    National Institute of Electronics & Information Technology, Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India (website: http://beta.nielit.gov.in) conducts these courses in various cities and towns of India. These courses are recognized. Many organizations/training institutes in private sector also offer similar types of short-term courses.

    However, it would not be advisable to resign considering the present less than satisfactory employment condition in IT sector. You may undergo part-time training programme in network administration, start applying for new job and resign only after you receive a better job offer in your preferred area of work, i.e., network engineering.

    Today the job position is not very comfortable still there is scope for people having specialization in a particular area or branch. We should not flicker our mind from one type of job to another until unless there are some consideration of future growth and good remuneration.

    You are already working as desktop support engineer so first go in details of further scope and growth in this area only and try to harness the full potential of it before considering for switching to any other area. Please remember, experience gained will be your only asset in the professional career.

    It is not necessary to change a job to learn the other trade. For example, if you have interest in networking you can learn it through part-time diploma course and once you are satisfied with your learnings you can apply elsewhere.

    Knowledge is power.
