If you just want a job - any job - maybe. The vast majority of Java/C# jobs though are poor quality as far as dev jobs go, since the vast majority are enterprise-y positions. Most of them treat software as a cost center instead of a competitive advantage.

I would personally argue for mobile (iOS/ObjC and/or Android/Java) and/or Ruby/Rails and/or Javascript. Plenty of demand, better paying, higher quality.

Some would argue the average enterprise job is more stable - as someone who started out in C# in big corps, that was not my experience. What I would agree with is that enterprise jobs are generally less demanding, and that enterprise jobs are available in more places.
