Technologies which companies work on will change continuously. If the
only criterion you have for selecting a language to learn is
employability, then COBOL or Java would be the best candidates.

Not that there's anything wrong with programming purely as a job but I
suspect that many people on this list learn and do Python just because
they love the language and the technologies associated with it.

The key to being employable is adaptability. You can become a
specialist in a domain perhaps but becoming a specialist *only* in a
single language is flirting with career suicide.
