RFIC --> RF design using integrated circuit (IC) technologies.
Thus, I would think you should know something about the process
technology you will be designing in (CMOS, SiGeCMOS, GaAs) and its associated
advantages/disadvantages. Also, one should probably study up on realizing
distributed components in ICs. By this I mean how to realize such things
as a Wilkinson power divider using integrated lumped elements and spiral
inductors using active devices.

If you have an interview
to be an RFIC designger and do not even know what the acronym means
then you are in trouble.
