Accepting a New Job in This Economy - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including 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!!

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
