the biggest problem with the IT market here, is that a call center job is considered an IT job.

Hey I got one of those!

Real IT jobs are entrenched here. Consider a different city/state for a good and long term IT job.

There are plenty of IT jobs to be found in the PHX metro area. I frequently get calls from recruiters, guess it all depends on your experience and if you stand out from other applicants. AMEX has a huge IT presence here, and so does Intel. Got an e-mail from US Airways that they are seeking IT Professionals. Wells Fargo as well.

I think WFC is looking for bi-lingual tele-sales to market credit card protection to Latinos. AMEX is strictly a call center, too. The people in the main data centers refer to the call center "IT" people and WINFIXITS as lowlifes.

True, there is a large service center but the data center handles all card transactions globally. their entire IT dept is based here, not in NYC.

big buzz word for the headhunters. Truth is, Sun was just acquired by Oracle---they are lucky to be employed.

I really disagree that Java Programmers are lucky to have jobs, if that's what was implied in the previous post. There are so many companies that use Java as their technology solutions. Java is not going away anytime soon, although Oracle might slow down the release of Java 7. It'll be just fine.
