Bouahahah!

Ok. I'd consider it a harder sell than switching to Common Lisp.
Eg. in France, I can name at least three companies that use Common Lisp,
and could find a couple more, but there's only one company that is known
to use Smalltalk (and even, that was 20 years ago, who knows if they
still do).


So basically, the answer would be the same as for lisp: the best way to
get a Smalltalk job is to make it yourself: start up your own company
(or at least be the CTO-co-founder) and mandate it yourself.

Well, if you're already in a startup, you may try to convince the boss
with the RAD argument. But since Python and Ruby are quite close to
Smalltalk, (in some superficial ways), you will probably have to back it
with some experiment showing off the goodness of Smalltalk image based
development and debugging tools, compared to Python and Ruby.
