Wally’s Enlightening DVCON Keynote… Conference Still Growing…. Prospects Still Bright for Careers Growth, Maximize Your Future Opportunities Doing This…

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

First let me remind some of my newer readers that I write the ONLY non-technical column (and Videos) in EDA. Simply stated, you will not hear much about anything overly technical. You will learn about our industry from an insider’s perspective, hear from some of our major leaders and learn how to maximize your chances, not only learning about how jobs are trending but how to maximize your success at achieving them. EDA is not the most interesting of industries so a little fun is sometimes warranted and you will find that in my writing and Videos.

So DVCON16 got off to a great start with a nice cocktail party the night before and a standing room only kickoff with Keynote Wally Rhines, CEO of Mentor Graphics. Wally, (I can be so informal when referring to him because I interviewed him and we are best buds now, um, even though he never calls) is one of the most knowledgeable EDA Executives we have. An enlightening speaker, presenting basically boring bits of information in a relatively interesting manner. He did a short presentation on the history of verification that almost took my breath away…well not exactly but I did learn a hell of a lot. The guy makes the mundane, magnificent.

Where Might Technology Be Taking Us, I Get A Little Crazy with Mentor’s CEO, Part 3 of My Amazing Must Read Wally Interview… How Was DVCON

Monday, April 13th, 2015

DVCON was, well, DVCON…nothing out of the ordinary; it was as always well-attended with good traffic, perhaps even more than I have seen previously. The one good thing I noticed, and this is technically very important: the food and drink is getting better and more plentiful each year.

Anyway, for the most part, my sources had similar comments; they picked up some nice leads and met some of the customers they were trying to meet. In reality, that is all a trade show can hope to accomplish for its vendors.

Similar to DAC, I don’t write about the seminars etc.–my meetings are done on the exhibitor floor. Two good things did happen for me: I did another video, which you can see on EDACafé with the other DVCON interviews at http://www10.edacafe.com/video/Video-Categories-2015-DVCon-Video-Interviews/10418/category.html, and I finally met Peggy, who like Oprah needs no last name mentioned. I was impressed as she was quite lovely.

Start Looking Now For Jobs Next Year… Mentor’s Wally Rhines…Why Is Mentor So Different,  First Of My 3-Part Interview..

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

THE Following is an intriguing and insightful look into an EDA industry icon, Mentor’s CEO, Wally Rhines.  Since our talks were so insightful, leaving me so much to write about, I will quickly give you my thoughts on considering a year-end career change first, followed by my interpretation of “The Man From Mentor”.

The cycles for finding a job have changed immensely over the past year, plus it can take months and months just to find the right opportunity, and then more to go through the interview process. Even though it is clear that the advantage is, (for now), on the Candidates side, make no mistake; the process can still be long and arduous. Even knowing how hard it is to find good people, companies today continue to be so picky and take so long to pull the trigger on actually hiring.  Starting your search now, and I mean now, is the smartest thing you can do.  You should know that almost assuredly, you would start after the first of the year, even if the process goes quickly.  The New Year creates a great time to leave your old company and join a new.  Starting at the beginning of the year allows you to be part of annual kick-off meetings and everyone getting back to work after the holiday break; it is a simply a perfect time to fit in.  Call your favorite recruiter (hopefully ME…is there anyone better?) to discuss the possibilities and your particular situation. I will help walk you through the process. Together we can both develop a strong comprehensive plan on how to best approach the next stage of your career.  On to Wally…
