imo better choice is (with criteria to find best job)
- Qt:
     C++ with any library that u need in one style
- C#:
     web, graphics, mobiles, command tools with nice language.
- Java/Kotlin:
     same as C# but in top-3. C# is top-5 with more comfort 
language than Java. Kotlin same comfort as C#, but JVM (Virtual 
Machine of Java and Kotlin) still does not support value types, 
that is sucks.
- JavaScript/TypeScript:
     web-browser language with node.js that allows to program 
server side too.
- You can try Python too.
     another dynamic language (as JavaScript). I don't like langs 
that based on space/tabs so I can not say anything about it.

C is too low level language. and many resources is not best 
criteria for it.
(like people says "there's definitely something in the shit, a 
million flies can't be wrong").

D is stuck in some middle ages with subsistence economy, they 
still have stone tools but now they found iron/steel :)
