I am an electronics design engineer with 3 1/2 years experience mainly focussed on circuit design at the PCB level who is interested in getting into digital design/VHDL. There is a fair amount of overlap in these industries but it would be very noticeable if someone started in a non-entry level position without professional experience.
The majority of entry-level jobs in this industry are advertised as Graduate Positions. I have a applied to a few but heard absolutely no response.
Is it acceptable to apply to graduate positions as an experienced proffesional in a related field?
