Considering you are knowledgeable at C, I would say your best bet is to learn C++. C++ is still widely used, and paves the way for other languages, such as Java, or Verilog if you're into hardware description languages.

Of course, if you are a very fast learner, I would suggest learning whatever languages employers are looking for. Really, to be safe, you could look at which languages are the most widely used, and learn them for future use.

I also should mention, all languages have their advantages and disadvantages. Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, which programming language could make a difference.

if you know C well go on to learn C++. If you understand the overloading of operators and your class scopes and your recursions and algorithms then you understand the basis of programming. Then all other languages will be very easy to understand.

i'm actually a van of VB...it figures!?
Good luck

It is not good enough if you know one language. I think we
should become familiar with multiple languages and use the right
one for the task on hand based on the way VS.Net is evolving and Microsoft is integrating the languages.

Books for programmers

Today there are little related with a single language. They all involve some architectureal frameworks which consits of many technogies. Today we have 2 hot sophesticated technogy frameworks the .NET & J2EE. So you can choose any.
