1st year? your job prospects are pretty weak right now - you've still got no experience and any new employer will wonder why you're leaving

If you give it time, your prospects may grow, especially if you can bring inb usiness

yea wouldn't want to leave anytime soon as I am doing a lot of substantive work and gaining great experience. What kind of skills you think are needed before even thinking of a bigger firm, besides a book of business of course and when would you think is the best time to start thinking about that.

You don't have any. Pray to god that you don't get fired/laid off as you will exhaust unemployment before finding another legal job.
