The IEEE has a wealth of resources available to members to assist in employment, career planning, and professional development. We have compiled a short list of places that you, as an IEEE member, can go for these services.
Career Navigator IEEE-USA has created the Career Navigator website which has employment assistance information, entrepreneurs' resources, information on conferences and workshops, as well as links to material that can be used for local section meetings and workshops on career development. It also provides links to the IEEE Job Site, and to the Employment & Career Strategies online discussion forum, where a variety of topics related to careers and employment issues can be freely exchanged with other members. http://ieeeusa.org/careers/default.asp
IEEE Job Site The IEEE Job Site is the official IEEE members site to search for employment opportunities throughout the country. You can create a profile of your ideal job and update it anytime. Jobs matching the profile can be viewed immediately, or automatically sent via email. http://careers.ieee.org/index.html
Employment & Career Strategies Forum For discussion, information, and a place to bounce ideas off other members, the Employment and Career Strategies Forum is always available 24/7. Join in a discussion topic, or start your own. https://www.ieeecommunities.org/ecs
PACE Network The Professional Activities Committees for Engineers (PACE) is agrassroots network of IEEE volunteers and committees organized at the section and chapter level in the United States with support from their respective regions and the IEEE-USA. The PACE Network promotes the professional interests of IEEE's U.S. members and provides a mechanism for communication of members' views on their professional needs. http://ieeeusa.org/pace/
Region 3 Employment Page Your region has established a local employment page to help members within Region 3. This page has been developed to bring together into one location the best sources of career planning, current job openings and information about companies that may be hiring in Region 3. http://www.ieee.org/r3jobs
Reduced Member Dues If you are unemployed through involuntary termination and actively seeking employment, or if your income has fallen below certain levels, you can request a 50% reduction in your IEEE and society dues/assessments (including publications). Contact IEEE Member Services at 1-800-678-IEEE for details.
Your Local Section Often the most important but overlooked employment resource is you own local Section. At your Section, you will meet engineers from other companies in your own back yard. Become a part of the local IEEE Network and be in touch and be prepared. http://ewh.ieee.org/ecc/r3/
For more information on these or other topics related to employment and careers, please contact your Region 3 representative to the IEEE-USA Employment & Career Services Committee: David Macchiarolo
