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
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

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

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
firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.

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
