2013 Chairmans Words

Dear CASPA Members and Friends, 

    Our exciting first-half journey had culminated in May by the biggest CASPA event this year 2013 CASPA high tech job fair. This has been our 18 years continuous effort in serving the local and global technology community. overall 19 hiring companies came to this event including ARM, Intel, Lenovo, Marvell, Hisense, MediaTek, Microsoft, Sandisk, SMIC,etc. from both hardware and software high tech industries. There were total about 750 attendees joined this job fair submitting resumes and talking to hiring companies. We have continue to prove value in this job fair by helping CASPA's sponsors and partners to recruit work force for their business growth, as well as bringing jobs to the semiconductor and related IT professionals. With the landscape change in the semiconductor industry from PC centric to phones/tablet and other SoC platforms, companies from IP, sensor and software world also came and looked for talents in our job fair. This year, we are very excited to see continuously increasing number of companies from Mainland of China come to the Silicon Valley for oversea recruiting due to the strong demand on high tech talents. Last, for the 1st time in the CASPA history, CASPA has extended this great service from the Silicon Valley to the Silicon Forest Portland. This is a great milestone with record setting for CASPA. Thanks for the great vision and commitment from the new leadership team at CASPAs Portland chapter.

    As semiconductor technology becoming ubiquitous in our life, CASPA has also grown and expanded our corporate sponsor base strongly. As of today, we have a record of over 70 sponsors covering from traditional IC design / manufacture, to IP and SoC system of hardware and software, from processor of CPU/GPU, to wireless network and cloud computing. Meanwhile, we have strengthened our collaboration with alliance significantly, particular in the collaboration with IEEE CES and IEEE DSTC in building more professional programs in technology forums. Going forward, CASPA will keep up the current momentum with increasing brand and stronger partnership, and bring more high quality service to our corporate and individual members in our community.
