What Is? IEEE REGION 3 ELECTRO-TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY DATABASE Where to look for a job The ETI is a help facility available to IEEE members seeking employment. This Region 3 Special Project was first funded in January, 1995 and initially covered industries within Region 3 only. It is currently being expanded and now includes about 50% of the country. If you want to know who hires IEEE members, you can get a list of companies that employ tehcnical professionals. Your list can be selective by any combinations of the search codes: SIC Code, Company Name, Area Code, ZIP Code, City, or State. You can also search with requests such as all comapnies with OIL in the name, located in Louisiana. After browsing the returned list you can ask for more information on companies you select. Details include: - Company ID: - Name: ---- Acronym: - Street Address, Box Number, etc.: - Telephone: - Fax: - SIC Codes, Services/description of business: - Total Employees: ---- Scientist employees: ---- Technical employees: - Last FY Revenue: - Point of contact: ---- Name, title, phone, fax, e-mail: Members wishing to query the database must, currently, be a member of Region 3 and must first register by sending e-mail to email@example.com The message must be in the format shown below. All lines must be included, irrelevant ones are left blank. Turn around time depends primarily on the ease with which your member status can be verified. Problems with the IEEE membership records may affect this. If authentication can be handled by the software, you should receive a reply in a reasonable time. If not, then manual interventiion is necessary and my experience was that that process is not smooth. At least you should receive an acknowledgement. A last ditch call for help can be sent to Jim Howard at: firstname.lastname@example.org The usual response will be a detailed list of instructions, services, and contacts. This reply is very well done. The format for registration is: NAMELINE: m1061803 Fennick,John H.
