Where I work, it is less specific to "Linux" jobs but more focus being
put on "Open Source" solutions.
More customers are seeing benefits of "Open Source" solutions, and
Linux is a part of that.
So, I would say, if you are looking for a "Linux" job, try to expand
your knowledge in "Open Source" solutions out there.
Try to put some focus on it, for example, SOA (jboss, wso2 etc.) or
big data (e.g. hadoop) or OSS (Operational Support Systems) and
reliability engineering.
One person can never know enough detail in every open source product
out there, so try to focus and get to know a particular area of them
