I know many people think us recruiters are not really good for much other than standing in between someone and their next job; however I think we are the first group to see the market change. In March 2006, there were a ton of contract positions going across my desk. All the companies in the bay area only wanted to hire contractors. Since about June of 2007, companies here in the bay area have either had a mass exodus of people retiring or are deciding to expand. The most incredible thing though is it has become a candidate's market here. Many candidates I am presenting to a hiring manager have two or more offers within a week or two of beginning their search.

One thing I have noticed slowing down; however is SAP. Last year, SAP PMs, BAs and Developers were really high in demand. Currently I know a ton of SAP people who are out of work. I think companies have finally put their foot down in regard to SAP development costs. Oracle is still in constant demand; especially the supply chain versions. My advice for any database developer is not to specialize in SAP only.

I have found that both C and Java are high in demand currently. I have a need for both sides. I would say though if you really want to strive as a Java developer that you better learn the Micro Edition because everything including server apps are starting to go there. I am actually trying to fill such positions. They need people with a strange combination of skills to work on the server side programming for mobile applications. (Who would have ever thought?) J2ME is very high in demand currently. In regard to C; still more in demand than ever as well. In fact the HD/Blu-ray war has brought on a need for people with a conjunction of both Java and C. The Java of course is the micro edition for the software and the C is used for the hardware portion. All those HD DVRs/DVD players require both languages, and you are about to see an entire line as such for Blu-ray as I know some developers who are currently working on them.

So who thinks Blu-ray will beat HD?

I think this may be true many places across the US; however the job market has gone absolutely crazy here in California. It seems like many people are retiring. Some companies have done layoffs; however candidates are still few and far between to fill the open positions. I have has mutiple candidates interviewing with multiple offers on the table. Some of them do not know which one to take and they have a tough time deciding.
