President's Words

Dear Members,

Worldwide chip shortage is getting more severe due to serval factors such as the surge in demand for consumer electronics during the pandemic, strong growth on IoT, 5G, and electrical vehicles, compounded by pandemic-enforced manufacturing reduction. As a result, semiconductor companies are booming worldwide. 

To address the needs for talent recruiting for the semiconductor companies and bring new job opportunities close to our community, CASPA will host its first Virtual Job Fair. The job fair is one of the CASPA’s signature events. We hosted 22 job fairs with over 190 hiring companies and more than 10000 attendees. 2021 CASPA Virtual Job Fair will be held on Saturday, May 15, 1:00- 5:30 PM, online via Zoom at 14 companies will attend this CASPA’s first online job fair, including Intel, TSMC, Applied Material, Futurewei, Kuaishou, Ansys, Silicon Motion, Silvaco, proteanTecs, Empyrean, Richtek, Etopus, Moffett AI, and Avance Semi, etc. Hundreds of positions, ranging from engineers to managers, and from interns to supervisors. Besides the job fair, a career development seminar will also be held. Two speakers, Gary Xie, CEO of FlyHigh, and Liang Peng, VP of Futurewei, will discuss how to prepare for a job interview and how to develop a successful career in the semiconductor industry. People across the world can participate in this free online event. As CAPSA’s website is under construction, the website for this job fair is temporarily moved to 

In addition, CASPA will host the 2021 Science Fair this Summer. It will open to all elementary, middle school, and high school students. The students are challenged to go beyond their classroom studies. The spaces are limited. Please check CASPA’s website for details on how to participate. 

Best Regards,

Xiaodong Zhang

President and Chairman, CASPA
