Recruiters–Do You Have Any Idea What We Do?…How Much Work Goes Into Finding One Good Candidate?…The Service Offered to Both Candidates and Companies…

Surprise Short Answer…A Lot of Work with Often Little Respect, Let Me Explain…

No, this will not be an umm bitch session (LOL) about how recruiters are used and abused but rather an insight into the difficult work we do, the services we provide and how we typically get paid. It just might surprise you to learn what it takes, to make just ONE placement.

I am writing this because I think it is important for both sides to understand the service we provide and the difficulties of the process. Many think that all we do is send a resume of someone we know, and they interview, get hired, and we get a check. While that has fortunately happened, it is far from the reality of our day to day efforts. In this month’s column, I will cover the Candidate’s side and next month, the Company’s.

I like to think that I’m different from most recruiters, even though we all basically provide a similar service of furnishing candidates to companies, trying to fill some very exacting positions. What makes my services different, and why I suppose am the most called-on recruiter in EDA, is because first and foremost, even though the company is the one paying me, I strive to make the hire, satisfactory for both sides. My goal is to make sure the process is on solid ground…that the Candidate is excited about the company AND the company about the candidate.

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!
