Is it wise................? - 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 folks ,
I have a couple of questions:
1:Do the USA Emploers consider Canadian Candidates having MSEE degrees and experience.
2: Is it wise to look for Rf Engineering Jobs in USA?, i mean it is worth to spend time in searching jobs in USA companies ?as i have noticed there is literaly not a single RF Engineering job in Canada.........can u you beleive this?.
I just checked on the canadian famous (or more precisely........) website www.workopolis.com
That website is showing the job population of 31,000 since last 4 years. u guys think this is cheating or what?
Any comments and suggestions will be higly appreciated.
N.B: by the way i have a M.Sc EE degree with total 7 years of work experiece including 2 years in RF Engineering (my thesis is in RF receiver design.

There aren't many RF jobs in Canada. A good company that constantly hires is VCOM www.vcom.com
Most companies in the US require US citizenship or permanent residency (Even for positions which are not in the defense sector). The Americans are afraid that their country might be swept by foreigners. Too bad. Yet you can always work in other areas beside RF. I haven't worked in RF for almost 2 years and after this time I found my current job in RF design for which I am working for almost a year now. Life is full of surprises you can never know.

Not sure were IR is getting his info. Many companies are hiring non-citizens for jobs in the US. I know several people from different countries working in the US on VH1 visas. Send your resume to a US company and see what happens. The worse that can happen is that you won't get a response.

Those people are working in the US offices of their companies, their companies bring them and for that they take care for working visas for them. I get this information from my experience and from my friends' experience. American employers prefer to hire Americans at first place and even more after the 11/9. America has become the country of Americans which is good for the Americans and not for others.

Well I worked for two companies all with no international offices, I would say at least a third of the engineers are on visas. They claim because they cannot find qualified individuals with the required skill sets in this country.

I just spent the last month looking for a Senior EE with RF. Where was everyone then? Please feel free to send your resume to email@example.com, as we often work with customers needing these skills.

I do not know were IR is getting his info. I work with a company which employs 185 persons, 90 of which are engineers. Out of the 90 engineers , 50 are on H1B visas and are from different parts of the world. Qualified RF engineers in the microwve industry are hard to find and employers will go oversees to find them.
Post subject: RF Engineer JobPosted: Fri Jul 15, 2005 12:10 pm
For the last one year I am trying for a RF Engineering position on H1B visa in US. I have got 20 years hands on experience (after Ph.D) in RF and related fields . Now on this form I understand that some people were mentioning that experienced RF Engineers are not readily available in US and some companies are eagar to recruit from overseas. But many a time when resumes are sent to different employees the stock reply is on the following lines " at the moment we are looking for only local candidates as relocation is not available". I don't know what is the problem!
Can any body please suggest a way how to get interview calls for persons like me who are outside US hence not in a position to effectively go after the job market there.
Thanks in advance
