The Ask The Headhunter Newsletter Readers’ Forum gets some doozies…
I was laid off 4 weeks ago in a reduction in force. Last week my former boss called to ask if I would come back — with a 20% cut in salary. I am really torn since I liked my job and the people I worked with. The job market is challenging so my prospects are not beautiful at this stage. But the layoff was hard and I don’t know that I can trust the firm or senior management not to lay me off again. What would you do?
Is this a second chance, or a dumb move for this reader? I can’t wait to see your advice.
