Hi All,
I am an experienced Java developer with 7 different certifications including scjp, IBM websphere, visualAge, MCSE and NOVELL. I have been working as a consultant for over a year, before that I worked in CT for 2 in JAVA. Now Because my wife is going to have a baby this month, I want to find a local Java developer job in CT. It is so hard to find a good position now.
It seems that all CT companies are dead in hiring new IT people.

I am having a feeling that the situation in the Washington, D.C. area is similar to that of CT.

Hi Tommy,
Looks like me and you are in the same toboggan. I'm job-hunting down here in Ffld Cty and it's dry as a bone. I'm not getting any replies (although, I do have less experience than you---and no Java experience yet sans the SCPJ2 and some personal projects).
Congratulations on the new baby on the way. My wife's got a bun in the oven as well.
I'm not able to do any Java at the company I currently work for. In fact, they're in the process of some lay-offs and I'm hoping I'm not next.
I'm starting to think I might actually have to pack up the wife and pups and relocate. How 'bout you?

Dunno. Maybe by expanding my searches on job websites to nearby states something will come up? Not sure how much this would help though with the market the way it is...
I guess we're actually in a good area---it's probably just a matter of waiting until things pick up and keeping our eye's open.
Sorry I don't have anything better to offer on the topic.

I used to work in Statford.
Consider moving to Boston. I have to believe that there are tons more jobs. And it isn't that far away.
(I moved to Boston, but I have not looked for a job for awhile so I don't know the market that well.)
