RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB.

If you have found yourself suddenly amongst the frantically-looking-for-a-new-job crowd, or suspect that you might soon be part of the fray, then hopefully some of these collections of career management articles that I post every couple weeks will help. Happy hunting.
Here is a list of engineering jobs listed on RF Cafe.
