  • RIM Still Hiring High Level Positions Despite Recent Job Cuts



    As gloomy as the news may sound from yesterday's RIM earnings call about the job cuts expected to be fulfilled by the end of the fiscal year, there is still some good news to be told!

    During yesterday's call, it was made clear that although RIM was making around 5,000 job cuts, trimming the total global workforce to roughly around 11,000 employees, RIM will still continue to hire employees. This makes me confident in how RIM is handling this situation for a couple reasons. First, it shows that they are cutting out jobs that aren't top priority. Second, it shows that RIM is focusing on hiring those who will get us to the BlackBerry 10 platform the fastest.

    If you take a look at the current open positions at the RIM Careers website, a large amount of them are higher level software developer positions. RIM CEO, Thorsten Heins, has tightened the belt notch and will continue to focus on restructuring RIM to be successful. This gives me confidence that RIM will come out of this strong. You can't fix the issue if you are in ignorant of it, right? RIM is of no ignorance.
