I would suggest that only antenna companies will want antenna designers - although mobile phone co's also need them. Surely telecomms co's will buy in the antenna's ready made, which is why they are looking for network engineers.

Isnt antenna design only restricting your options, very much like a vet only dealing with snakes.?? Surely the Masters will be covering more than HFSS.

Isn't your uni assisting you in finding employment ??
Aren't there any "release" schemes available with companies who are looking for interns for say 3 months ?

experience comes with experience - basic I know, but straight from a Masters you will need to start at the bottom and prove your ability.
That is the time when you find that in practice you are actually interested in other fields and excel in them.

surely searching for yourself on Google will give you some idea of job descriptions and the needs of employers. There are International recruitment companies offering jobs, but perhaps living in your part of the Eu you have restricted options and will have to go abroad to make it in the workplace.

Here in Greece this period is a difficult to find something so i look for another country. On this way i take as more tools as i can, to be competitive. I like that you say "That is the time when you find that in practice you are actually interested in other fields and excel in them." This is very nice

Thanks very much bro for your true information!!!

No problem, been there, done that, got the scars to prove it
My time in Telecomms started in 1960 when I suddenly found Amateur Radio. From then I have travelled the world in Royal Navy telecomms, learnt about satellites, fibre optics, etc but I do not have the badge of a Masters as you do, just experience from the University of Life, and it is too late (probably) to take and put to any use.

I hope my comments have shown a level of experience - I remember in my teens parts of telecomms I felt I wanted to know more about but that turned out to be more out of laziness, once I started into it in ernest I found that there was so much to know, so much to learn. Cryptography I shunned but turned out to be quite good at it.
Now I cannot see only one narrow subject but a whole cornucopia of interesting subjects hanging off the tree waiting to be picked.

Please - come back here later and let me and everyone else know how you got on. Perhaps your experiences will assist others just starting on the road you are already on.
