Hello, Can anyone tell about the Java job market in Texas, especially in DFW area? I am an Aug 2001 graduate of Texas A&M( Computer Science), but I am just now beginning my job search in earnest. Obviously, my programming language of choice is Java with a strong intersest in Web components(J2EE, JSP, Servlets, EJB). If there is anyone that knows of openings in this area, please let me know. I realize that I am definitely narrowing the job search here, but because of family reasons this is what I choose for the current time.
I think it's poor, but better than Austin or Silicon Valley. I know people who have graduated in the last year from UT Austin CS and are still getting hired immediately, but that's one the best CS departments in the country.
Go to http://www.javamug.org, subscribe our joblist. There are quite a few job postings there. Obviously better than some other joblists. However, it is a tough market. My daughter graduated 12-2000, CS major from UTD. Every single classmate of hers found a job then. Now, above half of them were laid out, and not a single one has been re-hired yet. Luckly, she is leading the software department in her company now. A proud mom Need Java real project experience? Join our project team here! [ January 11, 2002: Message edited by: Roseanne Zhang ]
