RFIC --> RF design using integrated circuit (IC) technologies.

Thus, I would think you should know something about the process technology you will be designing in (CMOS, SiGeCMOS, GaAs) and its associated advantages/disadvantages. Also, one should probably study up on realizing distributed components in ICs. By this I mean how to realize such things as a Wilkinson power divider using integrated lumped elements and spiral inductors using active devices.

If you have an interview to be an RFIC designger and do not even know what the acronym means then you are in trouble.
