    Blackberry says looking for 3,000 recruits

    news.google.com: The maker of Blackberry phone handsets, Canada's Research In Motion, said on Monday it was recruiting 3,000 new workers to keep pace with demand despite the global economic crisis.

    "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."

    The optimism at Research in Motion contrasts with other makers of handsets such as Nokia, the world's biggest, which announced 1,200 job cuts late last year.

    It's a smart move to help counter previous news of lower than expected earnings and the resulting drop in shares. Thankfully RIM has made enough profits in the last few years to more than afford this.

    yeah, i wouldn't mind being one of those traveling bb trainers. Had one come in and talk to the managers at our company, and although he was a great trainer and nice guy, i could do it easily.
