Which is Secured? Java Or Dot Net?

Software industry by its nature is always in flux thus no particular technical skill will grant you job security. It is always advisable to not choose the technology just because today it is paying you more. Rather than Logical thinking and Hard work, no programming language provide you secured job and good salary.

Intangible skills are better at helping secure a job. Be a good people person, analyst, learner and know how to adapt to changing times. Also depending on where you are, different skill sets could be more or less valuable relative to the world-wide trends. Around here, Java and COBOL are still both considered good skills to have on one's profile/resume.
