Although subject to the vagaries of the overall economy, the job market in the northeast looks promising as the year progresses. The west coast is still expected to be lackluster this year. We are finding that PA's with an ERP/MRP skillset (JDE, Lawson, and Infinium) are in higher demand than those with a general RPG background.
I always recommend that candidates invest in themselves by adding to their skillset portfolio. IBM has positioned the iSeries to provide a broad-based appeal to a myriad of business requirements that includes web-based development and support. Ergo, adding VB, JAVA, JSP, Struts, J2EE, C++, or any web-development skills is strongly advised.
