Jumping to employment - 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 asim569,

I'd say that for doing RF design work in today's commercial product (or MIL) environment that you can't get to an acceptable level of proficiency on your own. There are too many "gotcha" scenarios, and the test equipement needed to test and verify designs is too expensive for the vast majority of people.

It's going to be hard to break into the RF business with this worldwide recession and lower demand for products, but be persistent. There are a lot of field service jobs available for wireless operators, so that is a good place to get some experience.

If you can afford it I'd recommend staying in school for a graduate degree, even PhD if you acn afford it. By the time you graduate from that, the market will probably be better.

Good luck.
