Do I have to settle with my present job?

I want to quit with my present job. I'm with this company for almost 4 months. Though I'm a Marketing Specialist in the company I'm working with, the nature of the job is more on Engineering and I'm not getting any relevant experience with it and reasonable salary. I'm considering working in a call center for the mean time before I take up an advance degree in Marketing Communication, hopefully by next year. I dont have any working experience aside from my present job. I'm still undecided whether to stay here for 3 more months so that I could put it on a record like in my resume.

Look for other jobs while you work there and if you come along something more interesting then tell the new one you need some time before you start and tell the old one thanks for the opportunity but you're moving up. Never settle.
