    Jumping back into the Java job market, I'm not sure what to expect.
    After a week of putting my resume out - responding to various ads on
    careerbuilder.com, I feel like it's pretty dead out there.

  2. I'd say 1 week is too early to judge :)

    Try monster, dice and hotjobs too, that is sure to help.

    But what do you think about the market itself? A friend at IBM just
    told me it's weak. I had been hearing it was strengthing over the last
    few months, but now it's cooling off. I also heard a position that was
    interesting to me, at an investment bank, has now been cancelled for
    budgetary reasons. It would be a shame if it was cooling off.

  4. I have not been out in the market for a while (last it was Oct '03) but
    as far as the bay area (CA) goes, things seem to be okay. If you are
    just a plain vanilla java developer with no specialization
    (J2EE/Webservices/XML....), it might be hard, but you *will* land a job
    out here. It might not be a big paycheck though. All and all bay area
    java market seems to be alright, based on the list of openings on
    various jobsites.

    Again, if you are betting on pure java skills, it will be tough as
    there are cheaper alternatives (offshore, inshore) but if you manage to
    take it to the next level by adding leadership, architecture and
    specialization to your skillset, it will definitely be honored. Hope
    this helps!

    -cheers,
    Manish
