congrats for entering in to this field.
the concept of analog layout is very interesting.
it gives the experience in design concepts as well as the layout issues.
only thing the way we approach.
when you are doing layout, talk to designers and learn analog ic design.
talk to process designers, learn about the process. talk to everyone and be interested in the topic and you will learn a lot -- if you want you can go into design later.
layout is very important to analog/rf design if not the most important !
Analog layout design is mostly creative and fullu custom,Where as digital is fully automated.My suggestion is to take that offer,that will help u in getting good understanding of the analog circuit design concepts
I think most jobs are boring if without no much interest and knowhow.
Try to broaden and deepen you view of technology starting from your own
focus, like for instance, analog layout engineer / RF system designer / antenna
designer, and you will find a kind of different world.
But for me, this takes me amost 5 years to realize this meaning and works
in my job.
I did layout for about 6 months and I could say that after those 6 months I was bored, but taht was because the cricuits I was layouting have always had the same topology.
But really this is all up to you. My opinion is take the job, learn and if you don't like it, leave.
I am into layout. Every job has some amount of routine work. But if u try to look into the nuances of it it is very interesting.
And the kind of layout you are into (like analog digital respin) most determines whether it is interesting or not.
