A Message from the President
The view from my desk this time of year is amazing. The Daffodils and Tulips are giving me a good feeling about Winter almost being over. I have 6 different fruit trees in my view and all of them are in full bloom, should be a bumper crop.
Things are popping on my desk, many new searches to work on. I have been using the Video technology to introduce the searches I am working on to my potential candidates. The response is wonderful and I have to admit it is very fun to set up and record one of those Video’s. We enjoy doing the many “takes” that it takes to get it right.
With the consolidation in our Industry sometimes it feels like everyone will be working for one or three companies in the future. One will make the Equipment, one the materials and the other will make the Devices. I am hoping that the history of innovation that launched our Industry will continue to lead us into technologies that will provide jobs for all of us. All it takes is for a new idea to catch fire and a new niche of our Microelectronics Industry will open.
We have worked on many different and challenging assignments these past few months. A few of them very difficult, in one case we have a client that wants a Software Engineer who knows GEM and SECS protocols, seems easy but the twist, he must speak fluent Japanese. If you know of someone with that special skill set please give me a call and introduce me.
I have been to several Industry Trade Shows in the past months. It is very interesting to see so many people out talking things up. As always, I am learning a lot and networking with my friends about what is new on the job market. I will be in touch on a one to one basis to talk when a position comes by that will be a good fit for you.
