How hard is it to learn Cadence Allegro after being used to Altium?
I'm applying to new jobs postings because I am looking for a different path in my careers. Some of the companies I have been looking at are asking for Cadence Allegro experience. I have over 5 years of experience with Altium Designer, but I have no experience with Cadence Allegro. Will HR just throw away my resume if we state that I only have Altium Designer experience? Are there any free software that will allow me to obtain some experience with Cadence Allegro? How hard is it to transition from Altium Designer to Cadence Allegro? Should I look for other positions that are focused on Altium instead of Allegro? (That would suck...)
Sorry for all of the questions! I don't want to put myself in a position where I will struggle learning a new software. Thanks and much appreciated!
