Which language? But, you know, your question is more broad than that. Desktop or Web? Frontend or backend? Maybe mobile development?

Thinking purely in job offers I believe the top 2 are C# and Java. But there is a lot to consider:
  • Your personal preference/experience
  • Advice from people you know
  • Popularity (TIOBE, StackOverflow, GitHub, Ohloh)
  • And, of course, job listings (specially near you)

Thanks for the response. I guess I did leave it a little open ended. I'm really having a tough time finding "entry level" positions in my area. A lot of senior developer posting. Looking for 7+ year experience. So I'm trying to get a feel for the easier, desktop languages that might commonly have entry level job openings. I think the consensus confirms what I was orignally thinking which is C# and Java.
