What about jobs?
« on: October 01, 2003, 07:53:56 pm »

Hi All,

This is a pretty interesting proposal, but my first question is 'how do we all find work?'

NH has a sluggish job market as it is and not much at all going on in the technical sector (which is where I am).  How are 20,000 plus people going to find gainful employment, let along linear career transplantation?

I'm in the tech field as well. While I fear being able to find a position in this field, I do not fear the concept of moving to a different field. Heck, I'd even take up farming, for the taste of freedom!

I don't think NH is alone in having a sluggish job market...most of the USA is in such a situation.  Tech, or Engineering (myself) seems fairly rough all over right now.

Here in the great socialist collective of MN, I'm a long ways from where I should be job-wise.  I'm not even in my field right now :(  Hopefully this will change soon, or my own business will take off enough so I don't have to look anymore.

One thing I like about NH, is that it is close enough to Boston and some other larger areas that are within commuting distance which may hold employment opportunities for us.  It could get you by until something better opens up in the FSNH.  I'm very much counting on this to get my moving truck loaded up sooner rather than later.

Remember, we don't have to move next week...take some time, research NH and surrounding areas for where your best job targets might be found, then fire off those resumes and hope for the best.

See you in the FS

Thank you for your question!

According to my research, New Hampshire has 1,000 NEW high-tech jobs each year.

Here are the five-year growth projections for each type of position in NH:

  • Computer Software Engineers, Applications:  1,930 jobs
  • Computer Support Specialists:  775 jobs
  • Computer Specialists, All Other:  605 jobs
  • Computer Systems Analysts:  472 jobs
  • Computer Software Engineers, Systems Software:  386 jobs
  • Network and Computer Systems Administrators:  342 jobs
  • Network Systems and Data Communications Analysts:  262 jobs
  • Database Administrators:  89 jobs
  • Desktop Publishers:  71 jobs[/b]

Mark:

Go back to Sword Forum ;D

Just kidding!

Glad to see you thinking about FSP ???.

At least you listen to me once in while. ;D

Right now it's more like 2,000. Personally, I've already found a few likely openings that are superior to my current underpaid status.

The big trick is going to be selling the house...

When the Pilgrims fled the Old World for freedom in America, did they expect corporate employment to be waiting for them?

I expect we will need to start up some tech businesses.

I have some ideas in Optical Proximity Correction, which is software to alter a mask design to take into account quantum interference effects in chip manufacture.  Anyone interested?

Nope.  They didn't have to worry about purchasing land, or buying a house, or paying two mortgages if the one they just left didn't sell, or the cost of living where they were moving, or...

What the Pilgrims did was equivalent in trip time and cost to a Mars colony today (assuming that we actually used  technologies like NERVA today, instead of pretending that they don't exist).

All we're doing is driving to another part of the Wal-Mart. Let's not be too dramatic.

What wavelength is the mask being exposed at?  Are these edge effects such as diffraction?  Sounds like an intersting problem.  I didn't realize mask resolutions were approaching the quantum limits of optical technology.

It's submicron, in the ultraviolet.  Yes, diffraction.  The general problem (and kludgy solutions) is actually old news.  But it's a big business now.

Has anyone looked into holographic masks to project a pattern onto the resist?  This would harness quantum and diffraction effects to produce a more accurate pattern.  

A student at Caltech was experimenting with using a computer to generate holographic patterns in the late seventies-early eighties.  I don't know what the final results were.  He plotted the calculated interference patterns and photo reduced them onto film emulsion to produce the holograms.

I've had an interest in developing wafer scale technology, with redundancy in the device layout to compensate for losses due to contamination and crystalline defects.

I also see a use for holographic lenses for microwave antennas and other components.  A calculated interference pattern can be reproduced physically using rapid prototyping or CNC milling techniques.

I would think that using curved traces and filleted corners in mask design would also help reduce diffraction and over etching effects.
