2013 Chairmans Words

Liang Peng  彭亮

Chairman and President, CASPA


    Happy New Year in 2013! 

   On behalf of CASPA, I am proud to inform everyone in CASPA's community that we have kept a very strong momentum at CASPA with many exciting events and programs in 2013. 

  We have a record high number of corporate members, including many world leading companies in IC design, manufacture, system, solar, as well as cloud computing and financial service. While we have kept CASPA's key values and strengthened our interaction in the semiconductor industry, we have also expanded our footprint to a wide range of system and software industries which are rooted upon the advancement of semiconductor technologies.

    In addition to the CASPA's traditional events on Symposium, Conference, Job Fair and International delegation, we have also added new programs in 2013 to help the career growth for the young professionals including a series of mentoring / coaching workshops and volunteer mixers. 

    With many exciting programs set forth, CASPA is looking forward to another prosperous year to grow and expand in 2013. CASPA team will work harder to bring more values to our corporate members and individual members via all activities and services. I appreciate the support from every one of you as CASPA's sponsors, members, partners and friends, and wish you and your family a prosperous year in 2013.

Most professionals don't look beyond their current job or next promotion.  After graduating from a reputable school with decent grades and a degree, you started your career to get "some good experience."  You worked hard and advanced one or 2 levels up.  So what's next? Is working hard and "letting your results speak for itself" getting you where you really want to be?
Come to the CASPA Career Development Mentoring Workshop to learn key steps to take control of your career path, accelerate your advancement and avoid career limiting moves (CLM).  This interactive workshop will be application oriented so you can assess your current situation and determine practical "next steps" in executing your Career Action Plan.


Key topics include:

  • How to maximize learning in your current role and create leverage for your next job
  • Assess how your skills requirements and success metrics change at different career levels
  • Target senior management roles in Sales, Marketing, R&D and Finance
