When generally I’m being asked by some one what do I do, My simple answer goes by “I belong to Telecom Engineers.” I dont drag the matter into complexity, what the designation , what type of work I do, because people dont have here much ideas about telecom industry. they are too mainstream, and most precisely less focused, every one think,after completion of B.Tech, there’s only one way : Join an I.T company. I’m not talking about all(there are lots of IT,CSE students & they have strong skills to be an IT professional), But its for other streams – they can never think beyond this boundary, but frankly this is not the big issue, issue is to look down upon others works.
I’m an RF engineer, my own work is in brief collecting radio frequency data on the go. It may be on a busy street, may be on a icy valley, may be on the bank of a river, or in a top floor of a multi stored building. so without my work its impossible to determine how frequencies are behaving in open space. I dont work sitting in an AC room of office, I work in fields, I work hard so that RF connectivities ensure without fail. More over I work in physical level, to serve customers who face issues, so my work isnot like selling sim cards 😀 Today one of my friend introduced me to his co-worker as I’m working in XXXX Service operator , hearing about the organization that 3rd guy ( was a IT guy from R.S.Software) asked me is there any corporate plan or sim available for them in XXXX. I understood may be he counted me as a sales person. Well I’m not not – most of the people assumed such things hearing about name of operator. I dont know whats wrong with.
