hi guys...
i recently started my career as an ic test engineer in analog field at a very reputed semiconductor company.I want to know if it is a good choice or not and what shape i can give to my career in this field.I've heard from many people that its not so good...But some are saying now its becoming as challenging as design...
And i want to move to Europe as i know it is the best place for semiconductor field....so i want to hear from you guys abt this....any kind of comment is welcome...

IC test engineering can be very rewarding. You will have to build your credentials with the IC design community. Generally you will find the design engineers don't like someone calling their baby ugly, so you will likely not get too much respect from that community until you establish your expertise.

You will likely get real familiar with LabView.
