Your game will not be "made in SDL". It might use SDL for a certain task, such as capturing input or managing threads. Now, both of those things are easy to do with SDL and they both require quite a bit of work without SDL, but they are still only a very small part of all the code that goes into making a game.

 

As for getting a job with the knowledge of SDL, not really sure what you mean. Knowing JUST SDL will not get your far. Does knowing SDL help? Sure. A lot of companies use it. Eg. Valve uses it for their cross platform stuff. Actually, IIRC, the original author of SDL works for Valve.
