I had to cast my vote toward the job thing. I'm retiring from the Marine Corps this Summmer and the butterflies are beginning to quicken their pace in my gut. Despite my education and experience coding, I may have to realistically seek employment that does not involve programming.
I've thought about teaching programming at a community college, but the the legions of unemployed coders are getting wise to this avenue. It's a race to grab the last, open jobs.
If any Monks have a few leads on IT sectors that are still virgin (i.e. bioinformatics, etc..), let me know.
