'[OT] Job placement'
I'm out of college now, and I'm in the job market for a PIC
programming/hardware position. I have been using the PICmicro for a few
years now, and consider myself 'advanced'.
Is anyone out there hiring !?

Why move? Telecommute. That's what I'm doing. Hardware design and
prototyping, and writing software from a bedroom in Muncie.
Software is just bits..
In the beginning, look for short contract jobs, or support roles, where
the company dosen't have to totally rely on you to produce. As they gain
confidence in you, and you accumulate "successes", then advance to whole
projects. I did an AVR project last summer (first time I had seen an
AVR, and they were vapourware when I started) that netted me $12k in 6
weeks. From my bedroom, with a $50 development system. They hired me
because they had seen a project I had done that was similar to what they

Excellent advice, Dave. I'm planning the same thing next year, though
from a farm house in the middle of nowhere, if my company doesn't want
to keep me on remote.
Hopefully my "reputation" in the PIC list may also generate a bit of
revenue in the future. ;-)

The other side of this, for me, is investing heavily in myself and my
I've probably spent >10K on test gear in the last year. Still, anything
that enhances my ability to produce is worth doing. I usually buy it
used, and from reputable houses like Tek and HP. Hit the ham swap meets,
and keep eyes open. My most recent was an RF impedance bridge and a 2
channel Tek handheld storage scope.
You just have to keep your eyes open.
