In time of economic downturn in Canada and flat out recession down here in the U.S., BlackBerry maker Research in Motion is looking to hire 1250 employees.

The openings are pretty much anywhere in the world where RIM has a development center, however, the majority of the jobs are based at the company headquarters in Waterloo, Ontario.

This is a pretty aggressive move with the roller coaster dive that RIM’s stock has taken over the several months.  RIM is down alomst 5% today alone at the time of this posting.  RIM does, however have a couple of dump truck loads of $10s and $20s sitting out on the back lot and this just goes to show what a company can do when that have a lot of available cash on their hands.
