Opportunities at the FCC
Posted on August 31, 2006
There are some interesting employment opportunities popping up on the FCC web site these days for those of us with technical interests. It’s no secret that technical employment opportunities often go unfilled because of the lack of up and coming students and intern applicants with solid technical skills.

The FCC is facing a serious brain drain, as are many technical organizations, due to the large number of early baby boomers who are retiring out of the employee pool. This is especially critical in the tech fields, as the early baby boomers frequently came from military and classical engineering backgrounds, fields falling far short in graduation rates today.
The labor shortage predicted for 2010 seems to be showing up a few years early, and the job market is already heating up rapidly on the west coast.
