If you do then you take what's offered. How many of you Top Guns here who are too above themselves to fly an E145 would honestly recommend the original poster not to take this opportunity if it arose? It would be a brave person to turn it down in the arrogance that you're going to get other offers. One thing is for certain, if you're sat behind a desk there's absolutely no way of progressing your flying career, get your backside in the industry by any means possible, once inside the world is your oyster.
The thing is that when you start putting down money in numbers like that, you donít necessarily need offers... Take that money to Ryanair, pretty sure they still need some pilots and youíll get a 737 rating out of it.

Also maybe worth to note that the original poster doesnít mention that there is an actual offer in a way that you and I may understand it, simply ďI heard that they are hiring low-hour pilotsĒ and that what they have on offer is decent.

I will just repeat my original advice a last time since people donít seem to read the actual posts and just want to wax on about how they climbed the ladder in different times and how you shouldnít refuse anything .

If the terms and conditions are good, itís a guaranteed job and you feel itís worth dropping 20k on the rating, go for it. Otherwise there are better ways to spend that money. Youíre doing the right thing by ALSO thinking about what comes next, instead of only what is right now.
