What advice would you offer for someone trying to get a foot in the door?

It depends on your background. As RFID adoption begins to accelerate, there will be opportunities for people with the skills required to install RFID systems. There will be a need for product designers, including RF engineers and software developers. And there will be a big need for marketers, sales and support staff who know and understand the technology.

I would start by getting certified by the International RFID Institute (see A New RFID Certification), which would show that you understood the basics of the technology. I would strive to find a job with an RFID solution provider or a company deploying a solution, and then keep developing your expertise in the area. It might not be easy to get a foot in the door right now, but if you are a new college graduate, perhaps interning at an RFID company would be one way to get a start in the field.
