Building a resume for careers in VLSI, embedded system firms

January 07, 2012

RV-VLSI Design Centre, a finishing school for engineering students and working professionals in Bangalore has announced its free tool – Resume Builder – to help candidates in ascertaining their employability factor and managing job prospects in VLSI/Embedded Systems companies. Designed using inputs from industry executives, the tool makes an in-depth analysis of candidates’ qualifications and capabilities, job potential, shortcomings, unique skills, and suggests ways to fill the missing gaps in their academics and enhance their employability.

“Employment opportunities in the VLSI/embedded systems domain are enormous. However, students are losing opportunities because they do not have the relevant experience, or their resumes do not reflect their capabilities and achievements properly in order to draw the attention of the industry among the tens of thousands of resumes. Consequently, the possibility of a candidate receiving an interview call is greatly reduced. We help the candidates identify the gaps and suggest corrective action” said Venkatesh Prasad, CEO, RV-VLSI

Of the general pool of graduates across all streams, a barely 25 per cent have employable skills; in case of tech graduates, only 35-40 per cent is readily employable, according to  industry associations such as the National Association of Software and Service Companies. In the case of the VLSI/Embedded Systems design, this is even less and at under 10 per cent, a cause for serious concern.


"Finding employees passionate about their work from several thousand fresh engineers graduating every year and getting them industry-ready is a challenging task. Initiatives like these will go a long way in creating a much needed eco-system required for the semiconductor, electronic system design and manufacturing industry to thrive," said Manjunatha Hebbar, Vice-president & Head-Strategic Services (ERS), HCL Technologies Ltd.


Any BE/MTech graduate or working professional looking for a career in these industries  has to build his or her resume using the link, It takes about 20 minutes to build a resume and using in-built heuristics, the tool ascertains the candidate’s employability factor. RV-VLSI will then share the results and a suitable corrective action if applicable to the candidate, a press release said. 


This could help reducing the costs of hiring fresh talent and RV-VLSI aims to create an industry-ready and trained talent pool for the VLSI/Embedde Systems domain through this initiative. It will also create a platform to connect job seekers and providers and resumes posted through the RV-VLSI website will be made visible to product development companies operating in the space of VLSI/Embedded Systems design.
