I dont think there are any recruitments happening alteast for core mainframes (COBOL/DB2/JCL).
Have seen things for VPlus.

I got advise from ppl to switch to DWH.

Except for this recruitment on behalf of IBM and this one on behalf of CTS.

What seems to be happening is rather a narrowing of the experience "window"; too little, and a software engineer can't be marketed to even an American IT executive anymore; too much, and he is at least presumed to have priced himself out of the market.

Now that's funny. It's sad, and true, but funny.

The other end, pricing out of the market, implies entry level work. Which may actually be the problem. I think most of the low hanging fruit has been picked, and companies are expecting more quality work for their money. Maybe 'quality' isn't the right word. It's more like 'well thought out based on having done this kind of thing before.'

In the 1950s, "Made in Japan" implied "cheap junk"; in the 1980s, it implied "cutting-edge technology and quality craftsmanship". More recently, "Made in China" has embarked on that same evolution. I don't think that "Indian IT outsourcing" has really begun yet.
