Arrow Enron, would you sign up? - January 12th 2011, 10:31 AM

For those who don't remember Enron is a company famous for going bankrupt and everyone losing their jobs.

I've recently been offered a position where I can move up within a matter of months to becoming an executive at a top company because the executive keeps on changing because the company keeps downsizing and I've been the only there for the longest due to internship duties and considering going back within the office again to nab that position.

But, that also means lost time where I could be getting contacts elsewhere. However, there's still that title "hollywood executive at 22/23 years old."

I feel like a guy who sees Enron going down, but has been offered a price at the kingdom if I go down with the ship.

So, my question is this: would you sign up at Enron before it collapsed if you got a top position? Or would you not want to sink with the "corporate titanic"?

"Maybe I just like people. Maybe sexuality isn't one thing or the other. Maybe it's just something that's shifting and moving. I just know I'm not thinking man or woman."

Don't know why, but I'd go for it. Jobs like these are hard to come by. As you said though, it IS a huge risk and even if you lose the job, having the title in your resume for future ones could be helpful.

Without going in depth about it, no I wouldn't. Yes, you'd have that tital to put on a resuma... But you will also have the tital of being a high ranking corporate official when YOUR buiesness fails and bottems up.

No. A company going down in which you had a high position is not going to reflect well.

Religion is like a penis.
It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.
