My husband and I are relocating to the US with permanent visas next year and we are wondering what the job market is like for JAVA developers. We have narrowed down our preferences to CA or NY but we dont know where will be better for us to live. He is a french Java developer with 4 years experience working in international (US) companies. He speaks good english --but a noticeable french accent :) While I am a native english speaker with a Masters in Marketing and almost a year's internship experience in a multinational smart card company( I restarted my career and am almost 30 yrs old now, he is 28.)
1. Will he have problems finding work as a JAVA developer being french even though he speaks, reads and interacted/ presented in English in his prior jobs?
2. What is the market like for developers now? Do you think it will turn around in 2010?
3. Where in CA can we find reasonable rent,some mass transit(no car) and where we can both find work?
4. If you were in our shoes, which city would you honestly choose? CA or NY?
Really looking forward to ur answers, thanks alot!!!
