AS/400 jobs: Are you looking for work?

On the one hand we hear that it is increasingly difficult to find a job working on a 20-year-old system. But we also hear that companies are looking to modernize their legacy systems and move away from RPG in favor of a programming language that the new college graduates are comfortable with. To me, there seems to be confusion out there, or at least a limited ability for job seekers and employers to connect. I have personally received emails from both head-hunters looking for AS/400 programmers and email from job hunters looking for leads on a new position.

So this week as I was browsing the feeds and blogs and I ran across Get AS400 Jobs.  A site dedicated to all of you, dear readers — I just had to share.
My initial impression is that the jobs listed are current and real — not some random marketing gimmick leading to a dead-end. From Boston, Mass. to East Wenatchee, Wa., AS/400 insiders are desired. So if you’re looking for a change of scenery or want to escape from your boss, you might want to take a look. If not, you may want to bookmark it for future reference. At the very least, it’s good fun to see what skills are desired — I don’t know about you, but there’s a certain joy in reading a job listing and being able to say “Oh, I could so do that.”

    New is great but the AS/400 is more of a data cruncher. They just need to update the box and lose Unix. Why? Because I can create a RPG program in 2 weeks before some can write the same program in Unix, C++, or Cobol. I should know, I wrote the programs for them. As long as they didn't over work the plumbing, its an easy fix. If time is money, then building these programs should be quick and easy, and ready for production in less then a month. Also depending what your trying to do.
