The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. In the Schenectady Section, we strive to uphold the mission of the IEEE. We do this by encouraging our members to be very active in coordinating and attending monthly lunch meetings with excellent speakers from various arenas, as well as many other exciting events.
IEEE Schenectady Section received $1000 grant from IEEE-USA to start an employment network, the IEEE Schenectady Section Employment Network, within the section. Employment networks are made up of groups of individuals who come together in face-to-face meetings or electronically to help each other’s employment search. Ideally, an employment network allows participants to talk candidly about job searching and career advancement with the shared goal of supporting all members’ efforts to regain employment. Typical activities include networking among members and potential employers, information-sharing, coaching, training and cheerleading. If you have any questions or you are interested to join the network, please contact Ali, the employment network leader, at firstname.lastname@example.org
