Hi Ranchers,
Just out of curiosity, how's the market in the NY Metro?
I just started my job search (SCJP and on Monday SCWCD,I hope ), so it's hard to tell.
I'd consider myself junior-mid level, but already received one call. I guess after just two days it's not bad, but I'd like to know your opinions about job market.
I've heard the rumors, that's it's getting better. Is it true?
Michael

In NYC, you will have no problem if you have some substantial financial-industry experience. Otherwise, you would do better in NYC if you know other web programming (PHP, Cold Fusion, ASP), and use your Java knowledge to sell yourself as Senior in that area, instead of as a Junior in financial or EJB...
