Since the vast majority of hosting is done on remote servers at some third party hoster, rather than in-house, there's no reason why most people should have to live on site. Given, there's always jobs available for (2+ years experienced) people who come in, work their eight hours, and leave, but I think you'll find that very few of these jobs are specifically Perl. They're usually more a grab-bag of programming languages, including VBasic, C/C++, Javascript (which isn't precisely a programming language, I know), Ruby, Python, familiarity with mySQL, etc. - and Perl tacked on at the end. Very few companies can afford to keep a programmer who only knows a single high-level language, no matter how well.

EDIT: Okay, okay - stupid post. I would still debate that there are very few jobs specifically for Perl that don't require years of experience, but perhaps the pool of Perl programmers is also small enough so this doesn't matter. And you're right that Perl can be used for many other things, especially if you code first in Perl and then optimize specific portions in a lower-level language..
