I was considering trying to get hardcore into PFlow, I have been playing around with it and have really enjoyed it so far. My questions is, I have been doing searches for actual jobs to see what was offered in this field and I came across nothing and I was just wondering if anyone had any insight as to what kind of jobs are offered in this field and where and also where to look. Thanks for any help

It is unlikely to see a job description containing PFlow in it. My job description does not contain "PFlow" either, but I have used it on almost every project we have worked on.

In general, visual effects work often requires particle work, in which case you have the choice between PFlow+Extensions and Thinking Particles. Most employers might not care about thew difference, they care about the final result. PFlow is part of Max like the Skin modifier or the Editable Poly object, you would not expect job descriptions to ask for "good knowledge of the Skin Modifier" either ;)
Becoming proficient in it is a good idea if you intend to do effects work for commercials or movies.

Thank you Bobo for replying, the only reason I asked is a lot of times in Cinema 4D jobs, I have seen compnaies stating they want someone experienced with TP, which is why I thought it would be the same with Pflow, my mistake and thank you again
