you will also find that when you move onto the MS stuff, they will be ridiculously easy because much of the memory/variable management that C and C++ require, are taken care of by MS's languages/IDE's.
I think that's more of a regional thing, there are no C and C++ jobs in my area, there are very few .NET jobs of any sort in my area, they're almost all Java
