this is a ridiculus way of a recruiter getting business by trying to pose as an industry analyst, and it makes a joke of any real analysts who truly understand the industry

Thanks for those minimalizing, marginalizing comments. Everyday, 10 hours a day, all I (recruiters) do is talk to EDA engineers, sales, marketing, and corporate EDA INDUSTRY executives about EDA. I/we listen to their concerns and discuss issues. Certainly they are not DEEP TECHNICAL issues, (more I should say, as deep as most recruiters need to go) none the less, relevant to how EDA is doing, heading, performing, and we probably talk, listen, to more that any one out there.
I have total respect for the incredible analyst’s. I read them and in fact have pointed to them in previous articles. The fact is, I doubt a single one of them talks to as many diverse segments of our business as I/we do...and I say our business because the recruiters that specialize in this microcosm we call EDA live, breathe, and know it as well as most. Correct, we are not the technical elite that drive and thoroughly get the vision of the future; I would never suggest that, or anything near. We might not be able to design a chip, or develop a tool, but we know or can find the people the EDA companies need to accomplish that. That is why I never comment on the technical component, that’s for the analysts to do.
So I ask…doesn’t that give me the insight to state my opinion? It is insulting to for anyone to diminish the incredibly important role that recruiters play in this industry, and to say that is offensive and elitists.
As a professional EDA recruiter, that works tirelessly in only EDA to find the needles in the haystack, we have the absolute right to love it, comment on it, as well as do all we can to be part of sustaining it.
Thousands read my column every month. I know clearly from what I hear, how important it is to offer advice and opinions about our industry to the many engineers that do not know past what they do day to day, as well as the ones that really do. I love what I do, and will continue to do so.

Why does not somebody ask 'Mark' to shup up. This jibber insults his own intelligence and brings a bad name to other good recruiters like me.
MARK - SHUT UP.

I'm an FAE in EDA, and have known Mark for many years. Obviously his presence on EDACafe is a way for him to increase his visibility. I don't see a problem with this - recruiters definitely have a role in EDA, both for the candidates as well as the companies.
Mark's article represents his view of DAC as a professional recruiter. He knows who's hiring and who's not. Of course he views DAC a as place to meet people and build relationships. What's the problem with that?

Having attended 22 of the last 23 DAC's, I completely agree with Mark - DAC is more about meeting with your compadres and actually hearing about the next-great company. We all place our bets (needing a Vegas DAC soon) with our careers on the company that we feel stands the best chance. Most of that data-gathering happens at DAC - whether you are searching for your next project saving tool or career-advancing move.
So pity the Cadence minions - they will be missed for their endless expense accounts and lavish parties. All the better for the smaller companies in this space. Maybe we can leverage our HUGE investment in DAC to a smaller contengient of decision-making technical managers to better deliver our message without the added noise of a CDN amplified marketing preso filling the convention floor with swag-seeking attendees.
Thanks as always for your insight - yes, even headhunters need love too!
