Guides cover topics like gaining recognition, networking, and working independently

The IEEE-USA Employment and Career Services Committee recently released two career-planning guides for engineers. An online guide at www.ieeeusa.org helps users focus on what they want to get out of their job, as well as offers techniques for helping engineers achieve career goals like gaining recognition, obtaining financial peace of mind, and working more independently.

The Beyond Job Satisfaction Fieldbook features templates, lessons, and other resources that address the same concepts as the online guide, but in greater depth. The book is based on research among technical professionals and includes topics like networking, managing change, and building an informal influence in the company.
