Depends on where you want to work... Want to work 60 hours a week in cube farm in banking, where you will be just some guy in the IT department? What to sit in long meetings? What to take 18 months to do a project instead of 3? Then learn Java and stuff with "enterprise" in the title. Otherwise, learn Unix command line basics, then Ruby or Python, Rails or Django, and lots of Javascript and CSS. Then look for more interesting work in startups.
