Dear Mr. Gibson:
After 20 years with National Semiconductor, my business unit was merged with Battelle Laboratories in Columbus, Ohio. I was offered a transfer to Columbus, but declined the offer because my wife is General Counsel for a major employer here. As a result, I'm entering the job market, and the purpose of this letter is to make you aware of my candidacy.
I have extensive experience in integrated circuit and computer aided design tool development, and I have served on a number of technical and professional committees and organized and managed a number of large technical conferences. The following profile represents a list of parameters which may be help you understand my goals:
1. Desired Positions
Vice President/Director/Manager--Engineering, Research & Development, Integrated Circuit Design, Computer Aided Design
2. Desired Duties and Responsibilities
Research and Development, Product definition and development, Integrated Circuit Design, Definition and development of computer aided design tools, Technical Marketing, Strategic Planning.
3. Preferred Companies and Industries
Profitable Semiconductor Manufacturer, New Start-up with defined market niches and business plans, Large Research and Development Organization.
West and Southwest preferred (New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Southern California, Texas).
