Why don't you scout for FAE positions with silicon vendors or distis ?

FAE is a challenging job.
You'll have to meet targets (however sane or insane) or you're out.
If you are really as good as you consider yourself -- give it a try.

I think Field Application Engineer.

You'd think that, yes. But for most semi companies it seems to mean
Fatally Apathetic Engineer.

I think I'd love to be an FAE. I think it would be a great way to get
my teeth onto a myriad of interesting projects and problems. Sadly, I
doubt I can get into such a position.

        FEDERACIÓN ANDALUZA DE ESGRIMA

        Foolish Acronym Excretion

or just maybe

        Field Applications Engineer

Emmmm... Well I've been around the electrical/electronics
industry on 3 continents and many more countries for about
30 years and I didn't know either. Maybe it's a largely US
expression - do remember the internet does have a few
contributors outside US boarders.

The first questions that come to my mind are whether you are prepared
mentally to succeed and whether or not you are sabotaging the opportunities
you have. Zig Ziglar has an audio tape out called Success for Dummies. Its
available on amazon.com for under $10.00.

The fact that you have skills as opposed to just a piece of paper may allow
you to become self employed. If you are interested in something like this,
you might check out the newsgroups misc.business.moderated and
misc.business.consulting.

Your university should have an engineering placement center, that
coordinates interviewing between students and companies.  Usually, those
placement centers are open to alumni.

You are not alone.  This is the worst engineering job market this country
has seen in probably forty or fifty years.

If you are still in Boston, you have some other options.  MIT used to be
VERY friendly to people just walking in and hanging out, and you can find
interesting things going on there.  It may be as simple as a T ride from
where you are to Kendall Square (I think that's the MIT station).
