The Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) program is working to help young IEEE members bridge the transition of Student members to Section members. GOLD's goals are increasing member retention, creating networking forums for recent graduates, and developing programs unique to GOLD group needs.  GOLD is a great way to network with engineers already in the workforce who can point you to entry level openings.
