    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

    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

    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

    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...
