My friend said I have to read this "J2ee without EJB" if I am serious about a job interview. I am wondering -- Is EJB (even EJB3) really going away or what ? Is it a trend that Spring/Hibernate has been more and more popular and people are getting rid of EJB ? How about EJB 3 ?

In EJB 3.0, entity beans become JPA. Hibernate is an implementation of JPA. Session beans have been used throughout.

EJB when used appropriately can yield good results. They are not going anywhere in my opinion. They are still around but should not be used for every requirement that you can think of.
