3,000 Workers Needed At Research In Motion

The makers of Blackberry phones is in need of 3,000 workers to keep up with the demands of their phones. Canada’s Research in Motion does not appear to be affected by the global economic crisis.
Research in Motion’s rise is in contrast of other cell phone companies who are having to slash their work force to keep afloat. Sony-Ericsson has plans to cut 2,000 employees. Nokia also had to reduce their workforce with last year’s 1,200 job cut.

AFP reports:

“We have grown our employees base by 50 percent in 2008. And we’re still hiring and we plan to keep hiring. We have growth in our business,” co-chief executive Jim Balsillie told AFP on the sidelines of an industry event.

“We hired about 4,000 people in 2008, currently we have 3,000 open jobs. We’re still hiring a lot.”

RIM reported a 66-percent increase in sales in the September-November period of last year, compared with the equivalent period of 2007.

The statements were made at the Mobile World Congress being held in Barcelona , Spain.
