Accepting a New Job in This Economy - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

hello

i might be getting an offer from a company. i already have a job (in the same area) but looking to move. but, in this economy when layoff happens new people, i'd think, are on the chopping blocks first. but, then again, if a company is willing to hire in this economy, i would think they're in good shape.

what do you guys think? shall i accept it (if it is offered, that is)?

I don't know - never underestimate the stupidity capacity of management. I once worked for a company in which we moved to a new facility. They made modifications to the building and signed a 10 year lease. Planning to be there for a I while I thought... Two months later, they closed the facility and laid everyone off. I had worked there 6 months at the time. We were all told on December 21, 2001. Merry Christmas!!
