Most of our readers have jobs doing computer-related work. Not all of those readers find their jobs enjoyable. If you could have your ideal job in a computer-related field, what would it be? If you are in your ideal job, tell us why it is ideal. Related to that, how many hours a week do you work, and do you think it's reasonable? What would you consider a reasonable work week? We're interested in getting an international cross-section, so if you live outside the US, we'd love to hear from you as well.

My resume has a three week "proof of concept" internal project on it. I wrote front-end JavaScript, and some *basic* Java for JSPs being run on a WebSphere Server. I had about 25 calls by head-hunters from all over the states looking for "WebSphere Experts" who hadn't even read my resume. They just noticed that the word "WebSphere" was somewhere in the text (Monster board resume search, I'm assuming) and called on the spot.

If any Canadian programers want to move to the States, just put the words "Websphere" & "VisulAge Java" on your resume. You'll get offers up the wazoo.
