    IT help wanted

    If anyone is looking for an IT job in the DM metro, let me know. I know of some openings for Java developers, architects, IT security, and data analysts. Experience necessary.

    My bro in law has been looking for work forever, got laid off with 20 other people and worked mostly with Cobol. Market not flooded with people looking for that.

    COBOL, the language that never dies. Hopefully your relative has been using the time off the expand his skills as that is a really narrow skill to have.

    Re: IT help wanted

    Just curious what the companies are, I'm in java and security, but will be moving further west if at all.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: IT help wanted

    A programmer in Dallas told me to learn everything I could about COBOL, and that companies down there are paying bank to keep the old mainframes running that use COBOL.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    The death of the mainframe has been greatly exagerated and all the jobs use COBOL source code. Here is a link to a copied article from 2005.
