Why so hard to find 802.11 field engineers? - 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.

Excuse the attempt at a punny Username (H ed Hunter) :lol:

Seriously, though, I have been looking for field applications engineers for my client company's 802.11a/b/g product line (semiconductor fab house), and it is nearly impossible to find experienced, highly qualified engineers.

The coverage area includes the Americas, Taiwan, China and Europe (in other words, just about the entire Earth). I have reqs for many such people, but cannot find the right candidate.

I'm told these guys can name their price and terms, but I have not even been able to contact one of them.

Does anyone out there know where to seek out and find such talent?

Thanks for you assistance.

Could you send me a description of the job?
I have 3 years experience in 802.11a/b/g, and overall 20 years experience.

Without personal bias, it is not hard to find.
I have 20y in wireless, 3 years in OFDM and 10years in spread spectrum R&D, chief Scientist. This is not enough to convice them.

I used Philips simulation software and many others.
Every company thinks the software they use is unique and best in the world. The question goes - do you know puff, Ansoft, air, ads, eagleCrash or do you have 20 years experince in ultra wideband? They think single person is capable to know only single software package.
What can help open their eyes? Ask them if they have more advanced products than Philips. :roll:
