hi, john.
i have books to send u , but i need your email

2 years experienc of working with capture and layout is enough i guest.

collect your works and mak them as a book
try writing yourself higlihghts of conclusion, tips and patents you saw
in this two years

learn on pcb proccessing and manufacturing process

search for diffrent methods of manufacturing

i mean dont try to learn a new stuff , just organize all your
experience u have

anyway , there is a lot of sites dealing this subject just search them
on web

try going to some library or university library and learn there

i had downloaded my ebooks by emule and bittorren programs, i have many
hardcopies, so tell me what subject r u interested and i'll scan my
hardcopies i have


i wish u all success, and let me know how is doing

1. Bring a portfolio. Show the best of your work. Pictures of
products, sample schematics (make sure they are complex enough to show
that you have artistic balance), and sample plots of pcb stackups.
Actual PC boards are also good.

2. Know the lingo of the industry. If Orcad is your only experience,
you might want to look through a few PCB books or program manuals.

3. Know how the boards are manufactured and what that means to you as
the designer.

4. Don't wear cologne or perfume!!!! It makes a bad impression when
the interviewer needs bleach to remove the stench from their hands
(it's happened on a number of occasions) and air out the conference
room.

The IPC Web site's got some good material on it. After you sort through
quite a bit else.

And I've always liked PCB Libraries

by the way, i think you shuld know that orcad company isn't exist
anymore because it was bought by cadence.

i was asked about problems i had in layouting , and how did i overcome
them.

you can search on EMI and RFI phenomenas,

grounding and shding tricks.

uses of zero ohms resistors to separate analog and digital sources

there are many more...
