Open source is hot right now, and there is definitely money in it. Anyone who tells you otherwise is steering you out of the way…Opportunities for talented Drupal developers are increasing – whether you are a designer, developer, database/system admin or an artist – because of nothing else but good ol’ S&D. The demand for Drupal developers is gaining steam every day. Literally.
In general, though, employers are not necessarily looking first at Drupal experience, and this is something that can be seen somewhat across the board when it comes to hiring of developers. A lot of companies, although certainly wanting to find skilled, proficient developers, will place an emphasis on finding people who have displayed verifiable tendencies toward open source, either as contributors or users. So, yes. The demand is there. But remember that, although experience is almost always good, some companies will be looking more at your overall capacities as a problem-solving, technical person than a ‘Drupal developer.’
Check out Drupal Jobs, for sure, and you will also find an increasing demand for Drupal should you peruse the old job site heavyweights (craigslist, monster, etc). There are quite a few companies using Drupal as a primary tool and developers are, right now, in demand. Themers are also in demand right now and there are opportunities out there as well for Quality Assurance and Testing specialists.
