Need Advice - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hello Guys,

I am a new MS graduate with specialisation in RF Egineering. Since I graduated in Dec 04, I have been applying for RF jobs, but havent had any luck till now. Either I come across jobs which require security clearance(I am not a US citizen) or I see jobs which need atleast 6 months experience. Ironically, I got a job as a Project Coordinator, which involves developing software project in VB, Matlab and other software tools.(developing software is something I never liked to do). But I am concerned that continuing in this job would take me away from my field of interest i.e., RF Engineering. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or comments in this regard.

Take up the job as you say you are not finding a RF job. People in RF, especially test or systems engineering, use software a lot for automating the tests. You can highlight these on-the-job skills when you apply for RF jobs when you get one.

Good Luck.

    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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
