I've been unemployed for about 1 year and I now I got a job offer. I'm an electrical engineer with about 2 years of work experience. While I have work experience, I don't specifically have experience with 480V motor or motor drives which is company offering me the job is all about. They are offering me $13 / hr for the first 90 days and then they might increase my salary depending on my performance. Taking the current bad economy into consideration, should I take this job? I feel kinda lucky to stumble upon a company called me back and offered me a job. Financially speaking I'm well off and I'm not in a hurry to find a job. I'm also getting unemployment that equates to making about $10.5 an hour. I feel like I'm getting duped with such a low low starting salary.
