Suppose I actually got this job? What then?

I was doing some networking, inquiring and other activity to see what I can drum up in the way of a job.

I decided to drop in at a company whose job I interviewed for a bit over a year and a half ago.

There is nobody in the office building they are in — 3 tenants — and that company is gone. The logo and name is on the door but that is all.

I just called the place. Turns out it is down to 2 people and evidently everybody was let go. In the winter, they were hiring IT people — they were willing to pay somebody 70 grand.

Jesus.

Suppose I actually got their job…? I’d have been out of luck, yet again????

Worse yet, suppose I resigned from a job to take that one?

It’s all a crapshoot — and I think it is wise not to consider a job at a company where there are only 2 or 3 people on staff — and where the 2 or 3 people on staff are the owner and other major players. I now wonder what kind of staying power that company has, if you get their job.
