Anybody finding jobs here? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Radar Designer

Post subject: Anybody finding jobs here? Posted: Fri Apr 22, 2005 8:40 am

Hi. I've been a radar designer (military) for 20 years and am thinking about finding a new employer. I hesitate to put my resume "out there" because of being innundated with headhunters. Sure, I know lots of folks in the field, but don't want to start rumors.

Has this forum been good for you people for feeling out the job market? Kirt have you gotten any feedback about how effective this forum is? A quick scan of the page views on the Employment forum looks to add up to around 50,000 or so. Surely a number of people have had at lease some reportable experiences.

How about it guys, what's been your experience?

it is very hard to say.

you get interviews where companies interview over 50 candidates and don't hire, and are being picky, incredibly. they are looking for someone that will knock them out, sort of rolling hiring, hire if you impress.

other places are actually growing, but they are hard to find, and you can only find out through emailing people directly at companies, networking and just plain luck.

i also notice companies are not advertising a lot of positions except for the usual suspects (intel, qualcomm etc) because they don't have the HR manpower to handle the large volume of resumes, which is why you aren't posting your resume, since you don't want calls !

i have a question .. after all your experience, do you have advice for young(er) people ?

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
