( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Prologue:

I would like to learn more about the employment status of Perl developers, for several reasons: first, I teach Perl programming and I would like to tell my students what they should expect from learning the language. Second, beside teaching, I also work as a consultant and I do Perl development full time. I always preach for Perl and defend the values of the language among my coworkers. Third, I once was told by a headhunter that I should focus on PHP instead of Perl because that would be better for my career (I refused her PHP job and got a better Perl job instead).

Question/topic:

What kind of Perl job do you have / are you looking for?

Choices:

  • I have a job doing full time Perl programming, I am not looking for a new one.
  • I have a job doing full time Perl programming, but I would love to find a better opportunity.
  • I have a job doing full time Perl programming, but I hate it! I would prefer working with another language.
  • I have a job and I do only a little Perl programming but that's enough for me.
  • I have a job and I do only a little Perl programming but I'd like to do more!
  • I have a job and I do only a little Perl programming but that's too much for me!
  • I have a job, I don't do Perl programming, and I don't care for a new job.
  • I have a job, I don't do Perl programming but I would love to, if I find a good opportunity.
  • I have a job but I only do Perl programming on weekends. I don't want to work full time in Perl. It's more like a hobby.
  • I don't have a job right now, I would love to find a Perl programming opportunity.
  • I don't have a job right now but I am not looking to work with Perl.
  • I don't have a job right now and I love it!
  • Being paid for doing Perl programming??? I would do that for free!
  • Perl is dead. There are no job opportunities for Perl developpers anymore.
  • What is "Perl"?
  • What is "job"?

Thank you!

-- Take my advice. I don't use it anyway.
