Yakov Fain's Java Blog: Java Job Market is Steaming Hot in New York

Java Job Market is Steaming Hot in New York

Back in the mid-nineties I’ve been teaching PowerBuilder. The PB market was great, most of my students  found well-paid PB jobs, and worked happily ever after.

Back in the late-nineties/early-2K I’ve been teaching Java. The Java market was good and many of my students found well-paid Java jobs, and worked happily till 2001.

In 2002, I stopped actively teaching. Some  of my former students were laid off, and changed their professions. This was an era of recession and outsourcing.

In early 2005, Java market became hot again, but people who left IT did not believe me when I told them to pick up my book again (technically this was your classroom handouts) and return to IT market.

Now  some of them decided to hit the job market again. I’m receiving calls from my old students saying that they never saw such a good market (as it is in Java today) ever. Even back in 96-98 it was not as good as today. They phones are ringing off the hooks, recruiters are sending them for the job interviews daily, they are happy!

Why did not you start studying again two years ago? I guess,  I did not purchase an apartment in Miami five years ago for the same reason: “I did not believe that it can be that hot”!

And now, comes my  message:

"Give me your tired, your poor unsuccessful real-estate and other businessmen, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free in a nice, clean 9-to-5 cubicle, The wretched laid-off refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to my classroom. I lift my Java lamp beside the golden door."

If you recognize this (or similar) verse, trust me now – there are plenty of jobs (for you!)  in less then one mile from  the place where it’s engraved.

My warm  regards to all my former students. Start changing your careers today!
