Jumping to employment - 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.

Hi asim569,

I'd say that for doing RF design work in today's commercial product (or MIL) environment that you can't get to an acceptable level of proficiency on your own. There are too many "gotcha" scenarios, and the test equipement needed to test and verify designs is too expensive for the vast majority of people.

It's going to be hard to break into the RF business with this worldwide recession and lower demand for products, but be persistent. There are a lot of field service jobs available for wireless operators, so that is a good place to get some experience.

If you can afford it I'd recommend staying in school for a graduate degree, even PhD if you acn afford it. By the time you graduate from that, the market will probably be better.

Good luck.

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...
