Anybody finding jobs here? - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi. I've been a radar designer (military) for 20 years and am thinking about finding a new employer. I hesitate to put my resume "out there" because of being innundated with headhunters. Sure, I know lots of folks in the field, but don't want to start rumors.
Has this forum been good for you people for feeling out the job market? Kirt have you gotten any feedback about how effective this forum is? A quick scan of the page views on the Employment forum looks to add up to around 50,000 or so. Surely a number of people have had at lease some reportable experiences.
How about it guys, what's been your experience?

it is very hard to say.
you get interviews where companies interview over 50 candidates and don't hire, and are being picky, incredibly. they are looking for someone that will knock them out, sort of rolling hiring, hire if you impress.
other places are actually growing, but they are hard to find, and you can only find out through emailing people directly at companies, networking and just plain luck.
i also notice companies are not advertising a lot of positions except for the usual suspects (intel, qualcomm etc) because they don't have the HR manpower to handle the large volume of resumes, which is why you aren't posting your resume, since you don't want calls !
i have a question .. after all your experience, do you have advice for young(er) people ?
