What Are THEY Saying About DAC Austin…Is Hiring As Strong In 2013…My White Jacket Is Being Pressed for DAC!

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

DAC is being held out of California…sounds like a “hear all about it” headline.  The actuality is that DAC, out of California, is not an anomaly; DAC has left California before.  I can remember the sweltering heat of summer in Vegas and the parties all around the French Quarter of New Orleans to mention a few.  Austin has waited patiently for us so now it is your turn to shine. After all, Austin is probably the second largest hub of tech business in the country.  DAC is doing a great job setting the stage for the High Tech conference by making absolutely sure that the smartest brains in the world know that Austin is a great place to party.

Yes, there is good reason to go to Austin beyond the music and parties.  It is a smart move on the part of the DAC management to show there…most folks that I talk to are indeed going.  I have never been to Austin, and I dare say might never have gone, as this would not have been my first choice as a vacation destination.  The fact that it looks like a heck of a town makes this an intriguing location and I can dare say, a nice refreshing change. Local Austin engineers that have not had the fortune to go to DAC in California will now have the opportunity, as it sits in their backyard.  The DAC Company roster is not noticeably missing anyone and in fact has a fair amount of new exhibitors.  We already know that we will never see the DAC exhibit floor anywhere near its past size but it is not size that matters; it is the amount of exhibitors and all of you that decide to attend. After all, it is the support of the community that makes for a great show. The customers that exhibitors want to see will all be there, and on that you can wager.  I have not heard anyone say to me, “Mark, XYZ is not going to attend because it is in Austin”.


Extraordinary Year For EDA In So Many Ways…EDA Is more alive than ever…Is This The Best Time To Consider New Career Options?

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Last year we had a BILLION DOLLAR Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) year with some incredible acquisitions.  2012 has been no different.  While it will be almost impossible to replicate the mergers of 2011, 2012 stands as a close contender and a reminder that EDA IS MORE ALIVE AND WELL than in a heck of a long time.

Not only did we have some surprising acquisitions, we also had a record year in hiring.  In addition, sales for EDA seem to be at levels perhaps never seen before or if so, certainly not for a while.  In late 2010, early 2011, I predicted that we were entering the period where the countering of the axiom was beginning…the complete pendulum shift on hiring was starting to occur.  During that time it was a complete hiring dream for companies…too many job seekers, with not enough jobs.  As hiring in 2011 continued its growth and 2012 cemented it,  The polar opposite happened exactly as I predicted…too many jobs and not enough qualified candidates.  Understand, there will always be candidates looking, some having more success than others, but that does not negate the fact that hiring is clearly happening and quite strong in EDA.


Hiring Is Happening At A Record Pace…How Do You Gauge Success For A Start-Up? Thanks For The Nice Words About My Aart Interview…

Monday, September 24th, 2012

What a year this is shaping up to be…EDA start-ups seem to be thriving and that is indeed great news for EDA.

Before I continue, I just want to thank you for your wonderful calls and emails regarding my column about the C.O.B. (now Co-Chair) of Synopsys, Aart de Geus.  His openness and candor made it so wonderful to write about him and so many of you said you gained insight to the man behind the giant purple moniker…well so did I.

It is refreshing to see how business and hiring have improved in EDA over the last 15+ months.  Virtually all of my companies (close to 40) have (for the most part) told me that overall things are positive.  Hiring for the last 2 years has been better than it has in many a year and, while no one is ecstatic, overall most are feeling pretty darn good.  I have to chuckle because now when I am asked my most asked question… “How is the job market” (which I am asked probably 3-4 times a day), I can gladly respond “better than it has been in many years”.  Overall, the past 2 years have been strong.  2011 was an amazing year for my company EDA-Careers and 2012 has been even stronger.


EDA Careers @ DAC

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

DAC’s here accompanied by a GOOD YEAR in EDA…Look for ME in my “Signature” WHITE JACKET AT DAC and say HI…What makes DAC SO IMPORTANT???

First, APOLOGIES…I know I said I would do the follow up on my Hiring/Interviewing column this month, (the candidate side) on “The ABSOLUTE DO’S and DON’TS of INTERVIEWING”.  But with DAC here, I felt it best to do it in my “next” column…so I PROMISE, next column!

Yes my friends, it is DAC time again and much has happened over the past year.  Contrary to the pundits, EDA is still strong, still hiring, and still experienced a hell of a good year.  Our M&A’s certainly substantiate that and the growth reports show that things are still strong.  As my past columns discussed, EDA still has issues but all in all, most cannot complain.  Expectations for DAC are fairly strong for this year, though I suspect some of the optimism is helped out by DAC being in San Fran.  Of course I will be donning my usual WHITE SPORT COAT, which makes me quite easy to find (and makes for some interesting conversation throughout my day).  Please stop me and say hi!
