I am looking for job in SF bay area for about month.
I have 11 years experience in soft dev and bunch of certificates from Sun/Oracle/MS ;-)
Probably it is a time to start looking to other areas/countries.

You've got 11 years of experience and are armed to the teeth in certifications and can't find a job??!!!
Then how in the world am I, an almost grad, going to get one?!
I'd like to think something's wrong with your resume or you're not interviewing well or something. Or maybe you're overqualified for many openings...that highly possible.

If you've got 11 years you probably used to do C. I've heard of alot of openings in the Bay area for C/embedded systems, etc. You might want to try that until the economy picks up.

The problem with bay area job market is high competition.
I have two major weaknesses: H1B and 1 year US experience (means far from perfect english), so I can be easy disqualified.
It is not that bad I have leads and am pursuing them.
Thank you for the hint, I will check C/C++ embeded market.

Serezha,
the ERP and embedded-systems IT sectors are still going.
Fortunately they both more-or-less are ignorant of Java (and VB) - so there's not whole lot competition from dead-dot-com comrades.
Embedded-systems job market requires mostly C and C++ (and sometimes Ada, but that's only for folks with citizenship). Embedded Java and JavaME are something to laugh at, not to work with.
The ERP tools are Oracle Applications (some Java), SAP R/3, Peoplesoft.
Decide what suits you best, then jump!

Serezha,
Type ERP/SAP @ monster.com count the number of hits. Now type Java/C# and count the number of hits.
The numbers speak for themselves.
Decide for yourself.

Since monster.com does not tell you exact number of hits if it is above 1,000, here are numbers from dice.com:
C++: 13834
Oracle: 7998
Java: 7556
SAP/Peoplesoft: 3179
I'd like to add that about 6 months ago the number of Java positions was around 20,000.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
