If the rest of the resume looks good and is a fit for what you want, bring
them in to learn more about them. In hi-tech that sort of work history is
not unusual at all anymore.

Example: Candidate takes swell job in location A with a dotcom. Dotcom's
stock plummets, dotcom lays off all positions that aren't profit drivers.
Candidate gets a decent severance package, does not have to take the first
job that comes along. Looking for greener pastures, candidate eventually
relocates to location B, at the expense of the new hi-tech/dotcom that
hired the candidate.

Rinse and repeat as necessary.

This has happened to many of my friends and colleagues over the last year,
including some terrific workers. To pass them by based on this sort of job
history would be premature. Learn more about them. Interview them.

Maybe they're unpleasant weenies - those are usually not hard to spot.

Or maybe they just took a job with a company whose expectations exceeded
their performance. Been there done that.
