WOW, DAC Was Better Than I Thought…BIZ Has Picked Up Since DAC….The Amazing “Peggy” Wrote About Yours Truly…

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

Let me start by thanking Peggy Aycinena for her article.

It was nice to have the tables turned on me by one of our brightest; take a look… http://www10.edacafe.com/blogs/whatwouldjoedo/2016/06/30/mark-gilbert-white-coat-white-hat-big-fish/

Heading to DAC this year in Austin, I was prepared for a snooze fest, as the general consensus from most folks I talked to was that they were not expecting all that much this time around.  Well to the contrary, DAC was quite interesting this year and by quite interesting I mean “quite interesting for DAC”.

I am constantly asked; “SO, did you see anything interesting or exciting”? How do you answer that?  Is anything at DAC really interesting or exciting?  Well perhaps for the select few ultra brainiacs (of which we have a ton) that get off on EDA and find it exciting and kind of umm interesting, it was umm DAC!  Perhaps I could have said, “Wow, XYZ company simulator is x times faster”? That is certainly “exciting”! Or maybe, “ABC Design can verify a design in x less time”? Wow, talk about interesting! How bout, “Power at RTL is so much less with the new GHI tool”? I mean, that is BOTH interesting and exciting!

DAC In Austin, What To Expect…How’s The Year Been For Start-Ups…Polish That Resume, You Never Know When…BEST TECH CARTOON I HAVE SEEN…

There is a significant amount of decent buzz surrounding DAC Austin, which for me, is a bit surprising.  On the plus side, I think DAC will see a lot of folks from the region that simply cannot make the trek west; the typical home for DAC.  Considering that Austin (and surrounding Texas areas like Dallas) is probably the second biggest hub for EDA type engineers, I think DAC will see a lot of fresh faces. After all, the conferences are second to none and it is a great experience for those that have never walked the DAC floor.  We all know the usual suspects, those that rarely miss a DAC, will certainly be there. Austin will not preclude (plug in Intel, Freescale, TSMC, Global and the rest) them from going.

Landing The Interview Is About More Than Your Technical Skills…Must Read Advice For Anyone Interviewing

Friday, April 15th, 2016

I have placed more candidates than I can count and have additionally prepared more candidates for their interviews, than I have yelled at my kids… (OK I admit to stretching there a bit).  I cannot begin to tell you how many candidates make the most elementary mistakes during their first interview(s), serving to eliminate themselves before they have even had a chance to prove their worthiness.  It is certainly great to possess the needed technical skills for the position but it is even greater to know how to showcase those skills, to give you the best shot at acing the interview.

Here are a few of my more basic tips and what I always tell my candidates before they interview. I explain to them that the simplest, most logical goal is to have one single objective…and that is to get through the 1st interview successfully. Since most first interviews are phone screens, the discussions can vary depending on the company and the person doing the interviewing.
