My DVCon 2012 EDA Careers Video Update and Why I Write My Column

Monday, March 26th, 2012

It is always exciting to be interviewed by Graham and published on the greatest portal in EDA, EDACafe.com.

My column is the only non-technical writing in EDA. I like to give my unique perspective on our industry, and talk about the non technical issues facing us. I also have frank discussions on employment, and the issues surrounding careers, from both the candidate and the company sides. My Recruiting abilities are well known but it is my contacts and relationships that give me the unique perspectives on the goings-on in EDA and my column like this interview, exemplifies my unique way of story telling…it is my hope that this is why my column has been so well read and discussed.

DVCon, how was it? Who most values using a recruiter, Company or Candidate? A Recruiter’s Perspective on Recruiters… Magma’s Rajeev’s “final statement” to me!

Not to bore you but (like so many times before) it is 9:30pm and I am in my fav place at LAX…Chilis…again, working on my column!  I plan on finishing this in the Admirals Club where I will “sit” until my flight leaves at midnight.

I just left one of my favorite small conferences, DVCon. It is the small show that gets a terrific turnout.  Everyone going there has a purpose; they want to know what/who has the latest/greatest in verification tools. This show was no different than previous years except nearly 100% of the people were very optimistic about EDA and their business.  For me, I picked up  more new job reqs than ever and confirmed what I predicted in my Jan 2011 column (archived on our home page)…that the tide would shift and there would be more jobs than there are qualified candidates to fill them, (which is opposite of the many years past).  Companies are hiring like crazy and what used to be a flood of candidates looking for a few opportunities is now clearly the opposite.

While this makes our job more difficult, it also makes us more necessary.  So what does a recruiter bring to the table? (more…)
