I believe you are in a good field with tons of oppurtunity when you graduate. Broadband is expanding,VoIP is becoming a mainstay,and video conferencing will be mainstream as soon as the FDDI(or better) is installed throughout,including to your home. I worked for Nortel in telephony in the late 70's and early 80's and that was all digital communications. Nortel is the second largest telecom company in North America,and I am sure they would be interested in you when you graduate.

Stay the course in your studies. Good Luck to you.:)

I hope there are plenty of oppurtunities but all these layoffs are killing the spirit within. My friend's uncle got fired from lucent a couple of weeks ago from a $60,000 job. The layoffs are hitting closer to home
