Accepting a New Job in This Economy - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

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!!

About RF Cafe

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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
