There are a small handful of technologies that are more marketable than others, if you are looking for a job. Java and .NET development seem to have the most, and highest paying jobs out there, but PHP is becoming a more prevalent language. There are also lots of sites based on Python too.
First, I'd say go to careerbuilder.com or monster.com and start looking for programming jobs. Search for a general term like "web developer" and see what pops up in your area, or the area you want to move to.
