Engineering Career and Job Hunting Advice for April 2017

Engineering Career and Job Hunting Advice for April 2017 - RF CafeStories of interviewees being asked to solve engineering problems - basically working for free - have been around for a long time. Dilbert comic strips have been drawn about it. Job search forums have posts by people telling of ridiculous and/or insulting treatment. Fortunately, at least in the engineering world, those instances are relatively few and far between. This first article this month address the issue. The others cover both employers and employees - and prospective employees. I try to weed out the ones written by people who do nothing but give regurgitated advice to others without actually having much experience themselves (author names get familiar after years of searching for this stuff). Having held many positions over my career, I have been subject to many different interview styles ranging from being deluged with system and circuit questions to being asked mostly about personal and behavioral characteristics.

Here is a list of current engineering jobs listed on RF Cafe.
