Introduction

Welcome to IEEE-USA's Career Asset Manager Index (CAMindex), originally developed by IEEE's Educational Activities. CAMindex is a resource to help you keep records of all the educational, professional and personal activities that might be helpful in quickly putting together a resume or job application. CAMindex forms organize your information like a chronological resume, and may be easily adapted for other formats.

If you were faced with an unanticipated job change or unemployment, would you be ready for the tough challenges that lay ahead? Take a minute to ask yourself the questions in the gray box to the right. If you had a negative response to most of them, you're not alone. Most professionals, even those who consider themselves organized, have not kept good records of their professional activities. Yet, at any moment, especially in today's precarious economic environment, you might be asked to justify your current position or look for a new one.
