demand for programmers
I'm a programmer in Canada with a background in SQLServer, VB COM, ASP,HTML,
etc.,(about 3 years experience with a couple of degrees in CompSci and Chemistry).
I'm anxious to move south to the U.S. since I'm from a small city and I need
more opportunity. I was wondering if current I.T. layoffs have in anyway
dampened the demand for programmers in the U.S. especial for those of us
wanting to move in on a work visa. I've tried a couple of recruiters who
were very productive for me before Christmas but since then its been dead.
Are my skills not in demand? (that is the microsoft path to web development)
Do I need to re-align myself into another group of technologies?
I appreciate the input.
