Is it possible to get in these companies that way? - 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.

I am a gth semester EE student aspiring to start career in RF but there is no RF design company in my country and these big companies(listed in forum) dont bother to take entry level from my country.

One question more

Is it possbile to learn All RF designing on my own and do some realprojects on my won (with guidence or under professor) and then apply for RF design jobs that demands independent designer that need little guidence?

You've got a tough row to hoe, especially right now. I'm of the opinion that it's difficult, if not impossible, to learn RF Design on your own. You might be better off targeting smaller companies in your country that might want engineers.

The other possibility is to work on things like Zigbee/Short Range Radio, which is a bit simpler to get working, and start from there.

There are a bunch of design contests that you might use to show your design skills. Infineon is running one right now with one of their chips.

What are your career goals? That would help with advice.

Thanks for your care

My career goal is simple

BE BEST Professional ,I can be.

RF or anything related to wireless(even wireless networking ) inspire me.

I think woreless networking would be better because CiScO hire from my country.

BUt I wonder if a EE can pursue career in Networking becasue it is supposed to be for Computer guys.

Secondly ,I have applied to qualcomm too.I would struggle for qualcomm positions .Can you tell me if it is possible for me?

    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...
