| ||Ask HN: I actually need a job now|

|I've been working in startups for the last few years, using a lot of the latest tech that startups often use (Rails, Node, Mongo, Angular etc.).|
Now I'm back in my home town (failed and can't afford to be out in London doing this any more), and seeking any job for a developer. But all I see is PHP, .NET, VB, Java and everything that HN seems to hate.
I actually haven't touched this stuff since school, and everything I've learned and used over these last few years seems to be useless in the corporate world here.
I'm renting alone and therefore need a job quickly. My options are finding a quick job (e.g. waiter, shop assistant) while brushing up on PHP (or maybe something else has better career opportunities?) in the evenings, or just doing something completely different.
Truth is I want a stable career now and care little about whether we're coding in Erlang or Java.
